John Prine Tribute Album Recently Unveiled – Feat. Old Crow Medicine Show and More!

Recently I was G-Chatted by a good friend, JT Kennelly, who let me know about a new musical sensation: a John Prine Tribute album! titled Broken Hearts and Dirty Windows.  This album is to feature a great group of bands and singers including The Avett Brothers, OCMS, My Morning Jacket, Conor Oberst, and many more.  This is pretty exciting!

Short Bio from The Prine Shrine

Born in Maywood, IL on October 10, 1946, John Prine‚Äôs body of work has become the high-water mark of American songwriting and his songs have found a home in the repertoire of musical luminaries such as Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash and George Strait.

On March 9, 2005, at the request of Poet Laureate Ted Kooser, John Prine became the first singer/songwriter to read and perform at the Library of Congress.

Prine takes his own sweet time dancing with his muse — and truly writes what’s in his soul. So if it takes him a little longer to compose the songs that capture the moments that reveal the gently folded human truths that bind us all together, it’s always worth the wait.

Listen to Prine on youtube or grooveshark, but you ought to at least hear some of his work, it’s quite good, sometimes a little cheesy and sometimes old-timey.
