“YOU GOT GOLD: CELEBRATING THE LIFE & SONGS OF JOHN PRINE” POSTPONED UNTIL 2022

 
September 8, 2021—“You Got Gold: Celebrating the Life & Songs of John Prine” has been postponed and will now take place October 7-12, 2022. Ticketing and refund information is available at www.yougotgold.johnprine.com.
Of their decision to reschedule the event, the Prine family shares:
Our sincerest wish was to gather safely this October to celebrate the life and music of our beloved John. Given the ongoing situation with Covid-19 Delta variant, in Nashville and beyond, we’ve made the very difficult decision to postpone “You Got Gold” until October 2022.
This decision to reschedule was not made lightly. We worked tirelessly to find a way to move forward in a safe and responsible manner, while also keeping in mind the intended joyful spirit of this long-awaited celebration and remembrance. This event is extraordinary in the sheer number of artists, crews, and fans that are planning to travel and gather together. In light of how John died, we just could not reconcile pushing forward and adding any undue stress and anxiety during an already fraught season.
We stand in support of all of our friends and colleagues who continue to work on playing shows this fall and recognize we are all doing the very best we can to find safe pathways forward.
Our deepest apologies to those disappointed in hearing this news. Our family wanted nothing more than to gather with you all and remember John together. We very much look forward to seeing you all next year when we can gather safely and joyfully, and truly be together as a big family and community to remember and celebrate the life and songs of one extraordinary man.
Net proceeds from this year’s “You Got Gold” were intended to benefit the Prine family’s newly created 501c3, The Hello In There Foundation, and this year’s selected grant recipients—Nashville based non-profits Room In The Inn and Thistle Farms. Although this year’s events are now postponed, the foundation will move ahead making gifts to both organizations and looks forward to completing its full charitable commitments next year. The family foundation will announce additional fundraising efforts this fall in response to critical needs in the aftermath of nationwide natural disasters and Afghan refugee resettlement programs.
