John Prine, a two time Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, is among the English language's premier phrase-turners with music relevant to any age. He has been active as a composer, recording artist, and live performer since the early 1970s, and is known for his unique style of country folk music that has elements of protest and social commentary. Widely cited as one of the most influential songwriters of his generation, Prine is known for humorous lyrics about love, life, and current events, as well as serious songs which recollect melancholy tales from his life. His collaboration with younger artists such as Jason Isbell and Margo Price have earned him new generations of country and Americana fans.
