Miss Judd canceled her Saturday night show in Deadwood, a resort town in the Black Hills.

“The outpouring of prayer and support from friends, family and fans has been a blessing to both Cactus and I,” she said Sunday in a statement. “Cactus is a champion. I love him deeply and I will not leave his side.”

The couple were married in a private family ceremony in June in Leipers Fork, Tenn.

Miss Judd rose to fame with her mother, Naomi, as the country duo the Judds, before she embarked on a solo career in the 1990s.

Diner owner opens early for special guest: Tom Hanks

The owner of a diner in North Dakota got a surprise Friday when actor Tom Hanks showed up for an early breakfast.

Tammy Hagensen said she got a call Thursday evening from a jet company that often sends their pilots to TNT’s Diner in West Fargo. A company official asked if she would open early Friday for a special guest whose name could not be revealed right away.

According to the Associated Press, Ms. Hagensen told the Forum newspaper she agreed to open early because she was curious. She said she was stunned when Mr. Hanks, his wife, Rita Wilson, and their two sons walked through the door.

Ms. Hagensen said Mr. Hanks and his family ate breakfast and left, but not before a couple of photos were taken and he signed a couple of T-shirts.
