John Prine, one of the songwriting greats of all time and just a funny and warm human being is in a hospital and in critical condition from COVID-19.

One of my all-time favorite singer/songwriters - listening to him now. Especially love his duets. Iris DeMent and he are magical together.

Hard to not smile when I listen to In Spite of Ourselves...

He's had quite a few battles - here's to winning another.

Yeah, Huck, one of my favorites, too.  So many great songs.  And his performances are just wonderful experiences.  Saw him about 1.5 ago for about the 15th time over the years.

He is reported to be in stable condition now.  Hope he recovers.  If anyone deserves to call it quits on his own terms, in a rocking chair, on the front porch in the sun with a grin on and memories of a life well lived, yeah, he gets my vote,

I never followed him. Lost track of country and a lot of other music after i heard Muddy Waters and fell in love with the blues. But I've heard his song Angel From Montgomery sung by two women. Susan Tedeschi's take brings tears to my eyes.

He is one of the many pillars that suspends our society. Everyone dies, but this would be a true loss at this time.

I would say he is more of Americana and Folk than Country.

But actually, I would just call his music wonderful. I believe that someone referred to him as the Mark Twain of music - I'd agree.

I have been staying at my lady friend's place since this all happened. Her oldest daughter and boyfriend have also been there since the stay at home orders went out. We three all play a little guitar and were hanging out playing the other night. We ended up playing Speed of the Sound of Loneliness and were all wiping a few tears away thinking about Mr. Prine.

The Mark Twain of music. Perfect.

"Love has no mind. It can't spell unkind. It's never seen a heart shaped like a valentine."

Be well, all.

Heartbroken, but so thankful that he left his music.

Thank you, Mr. John Prine.
