    “When I die let my ashes flow down the Green River.
    Let my soul roll up to the Rochester Dam.
    I’ll be halfway to Heaven with Paradise waitin’,
    Just five miles away from where ever I am.”
    “PARADISE.” John Prine. 1946-2020. R.I.P..

    It pains me that the world can’t offer the memorial and tribute that John’s family and friends deserve right now. It would be one of poems, songs, great stories, laughs, and tears that would heal our broken hearts. However, I hope John is enjoying that nine mile long cigarette in heaven.

    Stephen, one of my favorite clips from your show is your duet with John, what a thrill that must have been. I became a fan of John’s in 1978 when a friend turned me on to him and I was blown away by Sam Stone, Souveniers, Hello in There. I have

    The biggest tribute to John Prine is that even though he lived here and he played the Ryman twice a year, it was the toughest ticket to get of all the shows in Nashville. The Ryman sold out in minutes and the audience ended up full of singers and songwriters waiting to see John. 
    Had the privilege to meet him several times. Sat across the aisle on several flights to and from Nashville. I can remember being in absolute awe but trying to hold it together, we talked about our kids, the Chicago Bears, one flight where we talked, he was with his sons, they were
    flying home from seeing a Bears game. He remembered me from the times before whenever we bumped into each other.  I loved him and will miss him greatly, he was an idol of mine. I don’t know how many times I saw him live, too many to count, but anytime he came around, I was going to go. There are very few artists who I do this for, when I hear they are releasing a record, I just pre-order it without ever hearing a note, don’t have to, I have never been disapointed. 
    Those two shows a year at the Ryman were among the highlights of my year, any year.

    I was dying to talk to him about songwriting but we just spoke about everyday stuff. John just loved talking to people, he never got full of himself and still thought of himself as a humble mailman who got lucky.
