John Prine

Biography

They give him Grammies as a folk artist, but you can't really categorize a genius as big as John Prine's. He's as deft with Memphis skronk as he is with Nashville sentiment, and a long time ago, people were calling him the next Dylan. He may never have reached Mr. Zimmerman's heights of fame and influence, but Prine has spent almost thirty years crafting a unique body of work. Like Kurt Vonnegut's early novels, Prine's songs are notable for both their bite and their warmth -- the gentle surface of ballads such as "All the Best" often hide a dark heart, while angrier numbers like "Angel from Montgomery" always seem to forgive the targets of their indignation. He's a true hero, and his devoted cult of admirers will be pleased to hear his first studio album in four years, a collection of classic country duets featuring Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris, Iris DeMent, and more.
