John Prine rang in the new year with a sold-out show on Dec. 31 at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry House. 2018 proved a career high mark for Prine, with the April release of his first album of new material in more than a decade, titled The Tree of Forgiveness. In October 2018, he was nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, followed by a nomination for induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in November.
Meanwhile, Old Crow Medicine Show wrapped up 2018 with two sold-out shows at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. This year marked the tenth time that the band has played the Mother Church on New Year’s Eve. In April, the band released its sixth studio album, Volunteer, via a deal with Columbia Nashville. 2018 marked Old Crow Medicine Show’s 20th anniversary as a band.
