John Prine Among the Nominees for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s Class of 2019

John Prine has the chance to go where few country artists have gone: the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

John is among the nominees for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2019. Other nominees include Def Leppard, Devo, Janet Jackson, Kraftwerk, LL Cool J, MC5, Radiohead, Rage Against the Machine, Roxy Music, Stevie Nicks, The Cure, Todd Rundgren, Rufus & Chaka Khan and The Zombies.

Ballots will be sent to an international voting body of more than 1,000 artists, historians and members of the music industry. Factors such as an artist’s musical influence on other artists, length and depth of career and the body of work, innovation and superiority in style and technique are taken into consideration.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame also offer fans the opportunity to officially participate in the induction selection process. Beginning Oct. 9 and continuing through 11:59 p.m. EST on Dec. 9, fans can visit rockhall.com to cast votes for who they believe to be most deserving of induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The top five artists, as selected by the public, will comprise a fans’ ballot that will be tallied along with the other ballots to choose the 2019 inductees.

A two-time Grammy-winner, John is a Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member and a PEN New England Lyrics Award recipient whose debut album, John Prine, is recognized as part of the Recording Academy’s Grammy Hall of Fame. John’s songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Carly Simon, Bette Midler, Bonnie Raitt, Norah Jones, George Strait, Miranda Lambert, Zac Brown Band and many others.
