Due to popular demand, “Picture Show: A Tribute Celebrating John Prine,” will re-air with additional footage this Saturday, October 10 in celebration of Prine’s 74th birthday. Hosted on Prine’s YouTube channel, the tribute will begin at 7:00pm CT and will remain available through midnight on Sunday, October 11. Originally viewed over 500,000 times, the tribute has raised over $400,000 for MusiCares, NAMI, Alive and Make the Road New York.
Additionally on Saturday, in the hope of flooding the internet with love on his birthday, the Prine family and Oh Boy Records are inviting fans across the world to share their favorite John Prine memories and lyrics with the hashtag #IRememberEverything.
Prine’s last recorded song, “I Remember Everything,” debuted earlier this summer at #1 on Billboard’s Rock Digital Song Sales chart making it the highest-charting single of his career as a performer. Written by Prine and his longtime collaborator Pat McLaughlin, the song was recorded last year in Prine’s living room with Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb and engineer Gena Johnson.
