John Prine will be at the Paramount on Saturday, April 17.
John Prine's country-folk career is running on 40 years now, so it's only fitting to hear that he's getting a tribute album. Oh Boy Records will release Broken Hearts And Dirty Windows: Songs Of John Prine on June 22, featuring the tracklist below:
01. Justin Vernon of Bon Iver - Bruised Orange (Chain Of Sorrow)
02. Conor Oberst And The Mystic Valley Band - Wedding Day In Funeralville
03. My Morning Jacket - All The Best
04. Josh Ritter - Mexican Home
05. Lambchop - Six O'Clock News
06. Justin Townes Earle - Far From Me
07. The Avett Brothers - Spanish Pipedream
08. Old Crow Medicine Show - Angel From Montgomery
I'm rolling my eyes at the inclusion of Conor Oberst and Jim James, but these are all beautiful songs, and right now NPR is streaming Justin Vernon's (Bon Iver) worthy cover of "Bruised Orange (Chain of Sorrow)" from Prine's 1978 album of the same name. Vernon's serene and soulful vocals do the track justice.
