Roger Waters and Johny Cash did pay tributes to John Prine as a big songwriter. Several artists interested in authentic folk music such as Kris Kristofferson and Bob Dylan also love the great musician a lot. Singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen took to his Twitter to pen a heartfelt note for the former singer:

"We are crushed by the loss of John Prine. John and I were 'New Dylans' together in the early 70s and he was never anything but the loveliest guy in the world. A true national treasure and a songwriter for the ages."

In John's music career, he was nominated 11 times and won a couple of Grammy awards. At the 2020 ceremony, the legendary singer was also awarded a lifetime achievement. On the other hand, popular singer Ron Sexsmith wrote heartbreakingly:

"As if we didn't have enough devastating news. The great John Prine has died and I am heartbroken. I always saw him as a sort of Mark Twain figure. A humorist but mainly a humanist. He would make you laugh one moment and rip your heart open in the next. He always very nice to me."

Up to now, John Prine was the third American singer to pass away because of coronavirus, following 61-year-old country singer Joe Diffie and 52-year-old Adam Schlesinger.
