Jeff Tweedy, Colin Meloy, and Big Thief’s Adrianne Lenker cover John Prine (separately)
Following Sunday's news that John Prine was hospitalized, and in critical condition, after experiencing coronavirus symptoms, his fellow musicians sent an outpouring of support to the legendary singer and songwriter. We received the very good news today that he's now in stable condition, which hopefully means the good vibes are working and we should keep sending them. On that note, we already posted that Joan Baez shared an acoustic rendition of "Hello in There" for John and his wife, and she isn't the only one covering him at the moment. Wilco's
The Decemberists' Colin Meloy also covered Prine during a livestream on Sunday, doing a rendition of "Angel from Montgomery." And today, Big Thief's Adrianne Lenker covered "Summer's End" on Instagram. "I’m beyond grateful for the gift of his songs," she wrote, "sending love to his whole family."
Watch all three covers below.
