John Prine Talks New Album, New Year’s Eve Opry Show


John Prine is an artist full of many stories – and many surprises. The folk/country singer-songwriter dropped by the ONErpm Studio with Lt. Dan to announce his upcoming New Year’s Eve show at the Grand Ole Opry House, where he will ring in the New Year with familiar faces Iris DeMent and Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats. During the chat, Prine talked about Bob Dylan complimenting his songwriting, his two-time battle with cancer, and a wacky story involving a Wisconsin newspaper headline that read “Aging Rock Star Saves Teenage Girls From Giant Orange.” Listen to the interview below!
