Tommy Prine never set out to be a singer-songwriter, but it proved to be a “saving grace” after losing his father, John Prine.
2020 was a year of great loss for all; the music world was no exception. As we reflect on the year gone by, WFMT salutes the contributions of artists and friends who died this past year.
John Prine, who began his career in Chicago, exhibited the ability to wring every possible meaning from a word to expose the joy, sorrow, frailty, and strength of the human condition.
News that Prine’s health was in jeopardy provoked an outpouring of affection for the legendary singer-songwriter.
