The family of John Prine has announced You Got Gold: Celebrating the Life & Songs of John Prine, a series of concerts and special events in Nashville set to pay tribute to the late singer-songwriter. The concert series is set to take place at various venues throughout the Music City from October 3rd–10th.
Though no performers have yet been announced, tribute concerts will be held at the famous Ryman Auditorium (10/6, 10/7), the CMA Theater at The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum (10/8), and the Basement East (10/9) and will culminate on October 10th, which would have been Prine’s 75th birthday.
A fan pre-sale for tickets to the You Got Gold events opens on Wednesday at 10 a.m. CT and is accessible using the promo code “YOUGOTGOLD”.
The You Got Gold series is only the latest in a developing string of tributes to Prine, who died of complications from COVID-19 on April 7th, 2020. Oh Boy Records, the label he co-founded with longtime manager Al Bunetta in 1981, is prepping the release of another John Prine tribute album, Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows: Songs of John Prine, Vol. 2. So far Brandi Carlile and Sturgill Simpson have been revealed as contributors to the new volume of Prine covers, set to arrive 11 years after the first edition of Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows.
