Oh John Prine, how we love thee

22 Jun

Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows is a new tribute album to the legendary singer-songwriter John Prine. Released today, it’s a new generation of singer-songwriters that cover some well and lesser known Prine songs with some amazing contributions from The Avett Brothers, Josh Ritter, Old Crow Medicine Show, Sara Watkins, Lambchop, Justin Townes Earle, Drive-By Truckers, Deer Tick, Conor Oberst, Bon Iver and My Morning Jacket.

Jim James just completely soars on this Prine song, the original of which you can find on Prine’s Great Days Anthology. You can check out the video of James and Prine on the Letterman Show below the song, which you can download for free.
