“The prospect of new music from John Prine is something the veteran singer-songwriter’s fans haven’t gotten to look forward to in more than a decade. Prine’s most recent album of original material, Fair & Square, came out all the way back in 2005, so the mere mention of his as-yet-unnamed follow-up is noteworthy enough. “I don’t wanna just sit down and write a little couplet that’s kind of witty, or something. I’ve done that,” he told Rolling Stone last year. Instead, expect real firepower: He recorded with Dave Cobb at Nashville’s RCA Studio A and recruited guests like Jason Isbell, Amanda Shires and Brandi Carlile.”
Just announced! John will join Live from Here with Chris Thile (formerly A Prairie Home Companion) at the Saenger Theatre in New Orleans on Jan. 20th! Other acts to include Sylvan Esso and Rory Scovel.

Last weekend, the Memphis Music Hall of Fame invited John to come to Memphis to induct his mentor, Jack “Cowboy” Clement” into the Music Hall of Fame. While in Memphis, John stopped by Sam Phillips Recording (where he recorded Pink Cadillac), to visit and reminisce with his old friend Jerry Phillips, son of the legendary Sam Phillips. Jerry and his team had a very special treat for John, the original recordings from 1979. The video below shows John hearing the Sam Phillips recorded “Saigon” being cut live to acetate in front of him. It was a wonderful and emotional trip for everyone!
It’s not a secret that Jack “Cowboy” Clement was one of John’s greatest mentors and friends, and it is with great pride that John will take the stage on Oct. 27th at The Cannon Center in downtown Memphis, to induct his old friend into the Memphis Music Hall of Fame. Read about the rest of the night HERE.
It’s been years since we have had music from the multi-talented artist, Dan Reeder, but on November 10th, Oh Boy Records will proudly release Nobody wants to be you. The EP contains five new songs, and is a precursor to a full-length record coming out in 2018. Popmatters recently premiered the title track from the album, calling it “irreverent, strange and nonsensical and also heartfelt, bristly and fun. There are no hidden secret messages. What you hear is what you get.”Click Here to Pre-Order Dan Reeder's New Record
