Singer-songwriter John Prine died Tuesday of COVID-19 complications at the age of 73. 

The family of the acclaimed Americana musician confirmed the news to Rolling Stone. Prine was hospitalized last month after testing positive for the novel coronavirus and was receiving treatment for 13 days. 

Admired by his peers - including Bob Dylan and Kris Kristofferson - Prine was revered for his ability to translate the everyday moments of life into rollicking classic numbers, including 1971's "Hello In There" and 1990's "That's The Way The World Goes Round."

As Dylan once described, “Prine’s stuff is pure Proustian existentialism. Midwestern mindtrips to the nth degree. And he writes beautiful songs."
