Brandi Carlile saluted the late John Prine with a cover of the posthumous “I Remember Everything.” The song, released last summer, was the final posthumous release from Prine. Prine won two Grammys for this song during the 2021 event, for Best American Roots Song and Best American Roots Performance.
In a heartfelt dedication to the late musician, Carlile covered the song and said, “We all thank you, John, for everything.” Prine died tragically due to COVID-19 complications. Following his passing, many musicians shared their sadness at the news and the legend’s influence.
