AceShowbiz – Jeff Tweedy and Ashley McBryde led the musicians paying tribute to the late John Prine by covering his songs remotely for Rolling Stone’s latest “In My Room” episode.
Prine died earlier this month from complications related to COVID-19 and his famous fans and friends got together for a virtual mini-festival to perform some of the Americana legend’s favourite tunes.
Tweedy led the tributes with his rendition of 1971 ballad “Donald and Lydia”, while McBryde, who once sang at a Prine family reunion, performed her hero’s “That’s the Way the World Goes Round” and “Mexican Home”, becoming emotional at one point and stopping the song.
Todd Snider, who Prine signed to his Oh Boy record label, and Jim James were also part of the Rolling Stone tribute, while Prine’s longtime friends Margo Price and Jeremy Ivey performed a gospel version of “All the Best”.
