A two-time Grammy-winner, John Prine is among the English language’s premier phrase-turners. Almost 50 years into a remarkable career that has drawn effusive praise from Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, Bonnie Raitt, Roger Waters, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen and others who would know, Prine is a smiling, shuffling force for good.
He is a Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member and a PEN New England Lyrics Award recipient whose classic debut album, simply titled John Prine, is recognized as part of the Recording Academy’s Grammy Hall of Fame and whose songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Carly Simon, Bette Midler, Bonnie Raitt, Norah Jones, George Strait, Miranda Lambert, Zac Brown Band and many others.
Prine's acclaimed new album, The Tree of Forgiveness, is his first featuring new material in over 13 years and was produced by Grammy Award winning producer Dave Cobb. The album debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200 chart with over 54,000 equivalent album sold in its first week—a career high chart position and sales week for the legendary singer, songwriter and performer.
