- King of the Parrotheads, mayor of Margaritaville, Jimmy Buffett was released from the hospital and is recovering after taking a nasty fall at a concert. Near the end of a concert at Australia's Hordern Pavilion on Wednesday night, the 64-year-old singer fell off the stage and was knocked unconscious, but thankfully avoided serious injury.

- Wilco has launched its own record label, dBpm Records. The label will be distributed by California major indie Anti- Records and could feature other acts besides the Jeff Tweedy led rockers.

- Literate rockers the Decemberists easily took the top spot on this week's Billboard charts, selling an impressive 94,000 copies of their new album, "The King Is Dead." They beat the always dangerous "Kidz Bop 19" compilation, which came in second with 70,000 units moved. Last week's No. 1, Cake, plummeted to No. 25.

- Here is Terence McArdle's full obituary on late country great Charlie Louvin.
