new john prine covers

For our third edition of Quarantine Covers, we pay tribute to the man every musician is paying tribute to: John Prine. Artists, including many he worked with and mentored, have covered his songs since his tragic passing. And not just the hits, but songs from throughout his deep catalog. Here are some we caught – let us know of others in the comments.

Rest in Peace, John. Here’s hoping you finally got that nine-mile-long cigarette.

Adrianne Lenker (Big Thief) – Summer’s End

Amanda Shires and Jason Isbell – Angel from Montgomery / Clocks and Spoons / Illegal Smile

Brandi Carlile – Hello in There

Eric Church – Long Monday

First Aid Kit – Angel from Montgomery

Hurray for the Riff Raff – Souvenirs

Jeff Tweedy – Please Don’t Bury Me

Jim James – All the Best

Kevin Morby & Waxahatchee – Angel from Montgomery
