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.

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

Seals performed at Jimmie Rodgers Festival in 1999.

    Dan Seals' music was meaningful to a large group of fans. As one of them, I think noting his passing is highly appropriate, here in Meridian and elsewhere. Why that should bother you, I don't know.

    What this has to do with Meridian, I don't know.
