John Prine has been a treasured folk-rock singer, a go-to songwriter and a musician's musician dating back to his career's genesis in the early '70s. But he's also staunchly independent, self-releasing his music and otherwise going his own way, which has helped keep him on the cultish margins of popular music. This summer, he's likely to finally receive some of his due, thanks to two new releases: a fine live disc (In Person & On Stage) and a tribute album (Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows: Songs of John Prine) featuring the likes of Conor Oberst, Justin Vernon from Bon Iver, My Morning Jacket, Josh Ritter, The Avett Brothers and others.
