Born in Maywood, IL on October 10, 1946, John Prine’s body of work has become the high-water mark of American songwriting and his songs have found a home in the repertoire of musical luminaries such as Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash and George Strait. On March 9, 2005, at the request of Poet Laureate Ted Kooser, John Prine became the first singer/songwriter to read and perform at the Library of Congress. Prine takes his own sweet time dancing with his muse -- and truly writes what's in his soul. So if it takes him a little longer to compose the songs that capture the moments that reveal the gently folded human truths that bind us all together, it's always worth the wait. There was a nine year gap between his Grammy-nominated "Lost Dogs & Mixed Blessings" and his latest solo offering, appropriately titled, "Fair & Square", but his unorthodox timing was rewarded with critical acclaim. Along with rave reviews from Billboard Magazine, Rolling Stone, The Washington Post, No Depression, Amazon.com and Blender, "Fair & Square" debuted at number seven on Billboard’s Top 20 Internet Album Sales chart and recorded the fastest rise to number one in the history of Americana radio. In 2006, "Fair & Square" won the Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album.
