Last April, Brandi Carlile paid tribute to John Prine when the singer-songwriter of tunes from the American songbook including "Angel From Montgomery" and "Hello in There" became one of the first celebrities to succumb to COVID-19.
Nearly a year later, Carlile not only took home a fourth Grammy (after winning three in 2019) for Best Country Song with "Crowded Table," she honored Prine on the Grammys' stage Sunday to perform his posthumous Grammy-winning song "I Remember Everything."
Known for his gentle and evocative lyrics and songs that have been interpreted by countless artists including Carlile, Bonnie Raitt, Joan Baez, and Bette Midler, Prine won two Grammys Sunday with "I Remember Everything," for American Roots Song and American Roots Performance.
Two years ago, Carlile wowed the Grammys' audience with an incendiary performance of her song "The Joke" and took home awards in the Americana and Roots categories. This year, she broke into the country category with a song she wrote with Lori McKenna and Natalie Hemby for the supergroup the Highwomen (Carlile, Hemby, Maren Morris, Amanda Shires).
