LEGENDARY SONGWRITER JOHN PRINE PASSES AWAY AT 73 DUE TO CORONAVIRUS

One of America’s greatest songwriters, John Prine, died Tuesday at Nashville’s Vanderbilt University Medical Center due to complications related to COVID-19.  He was 73.

Prine was a two time Grammy winner plus a Grammy Lifetime Award in 2020, who wrote rich plain spoken songs that chronicled the struggles and stories of everyday working people and changed  the face of modern American roots music for five decades.  

He was also an author, actor, record label owner, a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and the recipient of the 2016 PEN New England Song Lyrics of Literary Excellence Award, a honor previously given to Leonard Cohen and Chuck Berry.

Prine was born in the Chicago suburb of Maywood, Illinois and wrote many of his classic early songs while delivering mail around the Chicago suburbs.
Following his death, many in the music world have mourned the passing and paid tribute to him. 

He and his music will surely be missed.
