John Prine is nominated for three GRAMMY Awards including Best Americana Album for The Tree of Forgiveness and Best American Roots Song for “Summer’s End” (watch the official music video for “Summer’s End” HERE). Prine’s “Knockin On Your Screen Door” is also nominated for Best American Roots Song—earning Prine two nominations in the category.
The remarkable achievements culminate a historic year for the recent Songwriters Hall of Fame and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominee following the release of The Tree of Forgiveness (purchase/stream here). Released on his own independent label, Oh Boy Records, the album is Prine’s first album featuring new material in over 13 years and was produced by Grammy Award winning producer Dave Cobb. Upon its release, the album debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200 chart with over 54,000 equivalent albums sold in its first week—a career high chart position and sales week for the legendary singer, songwriter and performer. The album also debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Americana/Folk Albums chart, #2 on Billboard’s Country Albums chart and #2 on Billboard’s Rock Albums chart.
