John Prine is a national treasure.
Country legend John Prine is in critical condition after “a sudden onset of COVID-19 symptoms.”
Prine’s family revealed the news with a statement on Twitter. “John was hospitalized on Thursday (3/26),” reads the note. “He was intubated Saturday evening, and continues to receive care, but his situation is critical.”
I went back and read about his struggles with cancer, and the devastating surgery that he had. It's a wonder Prine has been able to perform at a high level, given his underlying conditions over the years. This is tragic and sad.
