About The Artist

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 2019 nominee for both the Rock & Roll and Songwriters Halls of Fame, 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 in the 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, the Zac Brown Band, and many others.

His critically acclaimed new album, The Tree of Forgiveness, was produced by Grammy Award–winning producer Dave Cobb and recently debuted at number five on the Billboard 200—a career high chart position and sales week for the legendary singer, songwriter, and performer.
