Pop, country singer Dan Seals dead of cancer

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Dan Seals, who was England Dan in the pop duo England Dan and John Ford Coley and later had a successful country career, has died of complications from cancer. He was 61.

His longtime manager Tony Gottlieb says Seals died Wednesday evening at his daughter's home in Nashville.

Seals was diagnosed with lymphoma in April 2007.

England Dan and John Ford Coley had hits including "I'd Really Like to See You Tonight" and "Nights Are Forever," both in 1976.

In the 1980s and 1990s, Seals had country hits like "Bop," "You Still Move Me," "Love on Arrival," and a duet with Marie Osmond, "Meet Me in Montana."

His older brother, Jimmy, was the Seals in Seals & Crofts who recorded the hits "Summer Breeze" and "Diamond Girl" in the 1970s.
