Musicians to honor Prine before Grammys
The Americana Music Association will salute veteran singer-songwriter John Prine at the organization’s annual pre-Grammy Awards gathering of artists and members to be held this year on Feb. 9 at the Troubadour in West Hollywood.
Performers have not been announced but are expected to be confirmed closer to the event next week, according to the association’s executive director, Jed Hilly.
“John Prine is one of the most beloved songwriters of our time,” Hilly said in a statement Wednesday. “His extraordinary gift for songcraft and storytelling is only matched by his humility and kind spirit. It is an honor for us to salute him during Grammy Week.”
