Mar 9, 2005 - Washington DC - 1st Singer/Songwriter
To Read/Play at Library of Congress, Washington DC - John Prine Joins
Poet Laureate Ted Kooser - "I've been asked to do a
lot of things," says Prine with a big smile, "but this is definitely
a first. And I don't even know how to quite respond to it. For a guy who
carried mail, was in the service, did so-so in school, this is kind of
beyond the stuff I usually think about. It's the kind of honor that's
beyond. So, you can bet I'm looking forward to it - taking all these people
in my songs to the Library of Congress and letting 'em look around a little
bit. It should be great, and an honor, and everything else." read
