This Song: John Prine

Songwriting legend John Prine  just released, “The Tree of Forgiveness,” his first record of original material in 13 years. He sat down with host Elizabeth McQueen at a live taping of  This Song at Waterloo Records to talk about Bob Dylan’s “The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll,” songwriting, empathy, and why he had to sequester himself in a hotel to write for the new record.
