John Prine, the singer-songwriter once called "the Mark Twain of American songwriting," died Tuesday at the age of 73. His family announced his death was due to complications from coronavirus. Prine received a lifetime Grammy achievement award earlier this year. In January 2019, CBS News' John Dickerson visited Prine at his home in Nashville, where he talked about his career trajectory — from writing songs along his mail route to his induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Prine also shared how two bouts of cancer inspired newfound appreciation for the continued support and praise of his music. Plus, Dickerson and Prine took a drive through Nashville and teamed up for a duet of the song “Paradise.”
