    So very sad to hear of John Prines passing. Rest in Peace John. When you get there, grab that guitar a sing like your are 21 again! I'm sure Heaven will be pleased. One of John's songs was "Paradise", sung by Jim & Jesse and the Virginia Boys. Timeless.

    I never met you, John. But you always told me so much about yourself through your music. Goodbye dear friend. Rest well.

    Wife wept uncontrollably as he's on our daily playlist. She recalled taking our young daughter to see him back in 2006. I didn't think I had ever gotten to see him then I saw this posted today. Very lucky 15 year old I was. Indeed, what a time to be alive in the history of American music.

    RIP, John. Thanks for the gifts of your songs. They have been a blessing to our hearts.

    I hope everyone sings one of his songs today. If you don't know one, learn one.

    I have been listening to a couple of his songs every day too! Just found out a dear friend of mine has been taken. An excellent chef, dinner tasted like cardboard last night! I will make myself do something more spectacular tonight in his honor! While listening to some John Prine!

    While it is possible that what you find depends on where you look, it appears to me that this virus is taking a disproportionate number of our most talented and beloved musicians. Heartbreaking. Truly heartbreaking. . .
