Long considered a “songwriter’s songwriter,” JOHN PRINE is a rare talent who writes the songs other songwriters would sell their souls for. Evidence of this is the long list of songwriters who have recorded gems from his extensive catalog, including Johnny Cash, Bonnie Raitt, the Everly Brothers, John Denver, Kris Kristofferson, Carly Simon, Ben Harper, Joan Baez, and many others. With immeasurable accolades, including two Grammys and the distinction of being one of the few songwriters honored by the Library of Congress and US Poet Laureate, Prine is more than a musician…he is an American treasure.

“He’s so good, we’re gonna have to break his fingers,” Kris Kristofferson once said after being justifiably stunned by a Prine performance. Bob Dylan remarked, “Beautiful songs… Nobody but Prine could write like that.” 

Long before the awards, all the concerts and many, many albums, John Prine trudged through snow in the cold Chicago winters, delivering mail across Maywood, his childhood suburb. "I always likened the mail route to a library with no books," says John Prine. "I passed the time each day making up these little ditties." Many of the songs he penned on the route landed on his classic self-titled debut record. 

Acclaimed singer-songwriter JASON ISBELL’S new album, Southeastern reached the artist’s highest ever debut on the Billboard Top 200 chart at #23, selling over 17,500 units. The album debuted at #8 at rock, #5 indie and #13 at digital. These numbers represent something special for Isbell and his small indie label Southeastern Records/Thirty Tigers. Combined with the overwhelming support from the press upon its June 11 release, Southeastern marks a true milestone for Isbell as an artist. He opens himself up to the world in a very personal and courageous way that only a solo album could embody. The songs reflect his fears, failures, regrets, triumphs and, above all, growth, as a result of being sober for well over a year now. Isbell does this with such honesty, beauty and grace that it has, and continues to, resonate with so many people.
