THIS FAR SOUTH
Tommy Prine knows his last name comes with built-in expectations. The 27-year-old is the son of the late John Prine, one of the most celebrated songwriters in music history. Tommy, who grew up in Nashville, started writing his own songs when he was 17, but mostly he kept them to himself. Following his father's death in April 2020, his desire to create flourished. "It was the healthiest and most intense way for me to process all those emotions [of grief]," he says. "I just fell head over heels for the idea of being a songwriter and a singer." 'This Far South' is Tommy's debut album and it directly confronts topics such as love and loss.
