John Prine Exhibit to Open at Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum
John Prine, one of the most revered country and folk singer-songwriters of all time, will soon have an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, paying homage to his lengthy list of accomplishments.
‘John Prine: It Took Me Years to Get These Souvenirs’ will open on Nov. 15, and run through May 2014. Included in the display will be handwritten lyrics for some of his biggest hits, including ‘Angel From Mongtomery’ and ‘Dear Abby,’ as well as instruments, tour books, posters, Grammy awards, and his very first guitar.
The 67-year-old, who founded his own record label, Oh Boy Records, has released more than 20 albums. He was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, and was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Americana Music Association in 2003.
Prine maintains an active touring schedule, and will perform in Michigan, Ohio, North Carolina and Kentucky this year. See his complete concert schedule here.
The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is located at 222 5th Ave. South, Nashville, TN 37203. Ticket options are available here.
