Yesterday I heard on the radio that John Prine was positive for COVID-19 (His wife had it too, but her's was mild.) He was intubated in critical condition. He is 73 and a two time cancer survivor. I only say him sing once, but am a BIG fan of his songs.

John Prine still hospitalized with COVID-19 but is now stable, his wife says

John Prine, the esteemed Americana singer-songwriter who has been hospitalized in critical condition since Thursday with COVID-19, is now stable, his wife said Monday on social media.

“I have recovered from Covid-19,” Fiona Whelan Prine tweeted. “We are humbled by the outpouring of love for me and John and our precious family. He is stabile. Please continue to send your amazing Love and prayers. Sing his songs. Stay home and wash hands. John loves you. I love you.”

This is the first John Prine song I heard him sing on the radio when my son was a baby

This song is more recent of hundreds of his songs with his video:

Legendary Singer-Songwriter, John Prine, passed away at the age of 73 years old on April 7th, 2020. These past two months have been such a blow to not only the Country Music community, but the Music community as a whole. The loss of Kenny Rogers, Jan Howard, Joe Diffie, and now John Prine are all within just 3 weeks of one another.

Souvenirs sung with Steve Goodman. Both of them were favorites of mine. (Steve Goodman wrote "City of New Orleans AND the so called perfect country song, "You Don't Have to Call Me Darlin". He died of leukemia in his thirties)
