Grammy Award-winning artist, Marc Cohn, was shot in the head after a performance at the Denver Botanic Gardens last week. The incident was part of a botched carjacking.

According to this BBC report, the musician – whose biggest hit was Walking in Memphis in 1991 – was struck in the temple by the bullet but it did not penetrate his skull.

“Frankly, I can’t tell you how he survived,” Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson said.

Cohn, 46, is married to ABC News reporter Elizabeth Vargas.
