John Prine, who died in April due to complications from COVID-19, won two Grammy awards at Sunday’s pre-show for the last song he wrote.
“I Remember Everything,” recorded in 2019 and released in June, won Best American Roots Song and Best American Roots Performance, beating out performers including Brittany Howard and Black Pumas.
“The music community in Nashville and beyond, your love and encouragement has meant the world to us this past year,” his widow, Fiona Prine, said while accepting the awards on his behalf.
“And to the fans, you span several generations now. Thank you for supporting and continuing to promote John’s words and music in the world.”
Prine, who was 73 when he died, was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Grammy Awards last year for a decades-spanning career that included hits like “Angel From Montgomery” and “In Spite of Ourselves.”
Brandi Carlisle recently said that her Grammy performance Sunday night will honor Prine, but was mum on the details.
