MUSIC NEWS: FRIDAY, JULY 7, 2017 MID-YEAR-MUSIC-REPORT If things keep up the way they have so far, 2017 will prove to be a huge year for both Kendrick Lamar and Ed Sheeran. Nielsen is out with its mid-year music report and it says those two artists have the top albums so far this year. Lamar's ``DAMN.'' is setting the pace, with close to 1.8-million sales -- based on a combination of physical sales, song sales and audio streams. By that same measure, Sheeran's ``Divide'' is second, but by a narrow margin. Rounding out the top five for the first six months of the year are Drake with ``More Life,'' Bruno Mars with ``24K Magic'' and ``Culture'' by Migos. Each of those albums has reached the one-million mark in combined sales so far. --- RACISM-ATLANTA-VENUE The man who used to head up security at the big venue in Atlanta says the…

MUSIC NEWS: THURSDAY, JULY 7, 2017 IMAGINE-DRAGONS It's always nice to get away from the daily grind and go back to a place that's a little less stressful. But for Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons, such a breakaway wasn't only a nicety -- but a necessity. Reynolds has suffered from depression since he was younger and says things got worse as Imagine Dragons went from being an unknown group to a Grammy-winning one. Reynolds says seven years of touring and making a mark in the business after toiling in obscurity left him in a ``just scattered, depressed headspace.'' He says he used the time back home to reconnect with his wife, 4-year-old daughter and friends. Now, he says he's a ``really wonderful, colourful, good headspace.'' The group's new album is called ``Evolve.'' --- JOHN-PRINE-FUTURE He's a former mail carrier from Chicago. But these days, instead of delivering bills and packages…
