Remembering John Prine

We are very sad to hear that John Prine passed away from Covid-19 complications on April 7, 2020. He was 73. The singer and guitarist wrote and performed songs that balance the country tradition, social commentary, and humor. Our hearts go out to Fiona Prine and the rest of the family.

In lieu of flowers or gifts, the Prine family asks that donations be made to one of the following nonprofits:

Thistle Farms
Room in the Inn
Nashville Rescue Mission

You can hear our two-hour tribute to John Prine here.

It will also be airing nationally next week.
