BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Songwriter, John Prine, is coming to the King Center October 16 presented by AEG Live. Tickets go on sale June 19.
Long considered a “songwriter’s songwriter,” John Prine is a rare talent who writes the songs other songwriters would sell their souls for.
Evidence of this is the long list of songwriters who have recorded gems from his extensive catalog, including Johnny Cash, Bonnie Raitt, the Everly Brothers, John Denver, Kris Kristofferson, Carly Simon, Joan Baez, and many others. Prine has received numerous accolades, including two Grammy’s and the 2005 Americana Music Awards Artist of the Year.
Recently honored at the Library of Congress by US Poet Laureate Ted Kooser, he’s been elevated from the annals of songwriters into the realm of bonafide American treasures.
