Brandi Carlile Will Tribute John Prine at the 2021 Grammy Awards

Brandi Carlile's 2021 Grammy Awards performance will be a moment nearly a year in the making. The Americana star is honoring the late John Prine, who died of COVID-19 in early April 2021, she shares in footage from rehearsals for the big awards show.

"He is one of my great heroes," Carlile says of Prine. "He's certainly one of the greatest songwriters of all time, and there's so many of that just wouldn't -- we wouldn't write songs and we wouldn't know how if not for John."
