John Prine‘s life and musical legacy will be honored when the Prine family presents You Got Gold: Celebrating the Life & Songs of John Prine, a series of special concerts and events across venues in Nashville running from Oct. 3-10.
The weeklong celebration will include tribute concerts at The Ryman Auditorium on Oct. 6 and 7, the CMA Theater at The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum on Oct. 8, the Basement East on Oct. 9, and will culminate on Oct. 10—what would have been Prine’s 75th birthday. Each of the shows will include a unique lineup of performers celebrating the legendary singer’s life and songs. Tickets are available for pre-sale beginning May 26, with general on-sale beginning Friday, May 28.
All proceeds from the week will benefit the newly-created Hello In There Foundation, established by Prine’s family to honor his memory. Inspired and guided by Prine’s song title, “Hello In There,” the foundation aims to identify and collaborate with individuals and communities where people are marginalized, discriminated against or are otherwise forgotten. This year’s grant recipients are Nashville-based non-profits Room In The Inn and Thistle Farms.
Along with the special week-long celebration, on Oct. 8 Oh Boy Records will release a new tribute album, Broken Hearts and Dirty Windows: Songs of John Prine, Vol. 2. Each month ahead of the release, Oh Boy will unveil a new artist and song from the record, including the two previously released tracks, “Paradise” performed by Sturgill Simpson and “I Remember Everything” performed by Brandi Carlile.
