John Prine will host a new destination concert event, All the Best, in the Dominican Republic in November 2019, and for the lineup, the legendary songwriter has tapped fellow Americana acts like Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit and Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats.
Also included in the event’s musical offerings will be I’m With Her, Iris Dement, Amanda Shires’ Awesome Muscular Trio, Paul Thorn, Tyler Childers and Gretchen Peters, with additional acts to be revealed.
“I’m so blessed to have enjoyed almost 50 years of bringing my music to fans all across the USA and around the world,” Prine writes in a statement on the event’s website. “Along the way we have had some wonderful adventures and have met thousands of dedicated fans – indeed many of them feel like family to us now. In the 1970’s they shared my music with their children and those same children are now passing it on to a new generation. I couldn’t be more grateful. I still enjoy the heck out of getting up there to play shows every night.”
The statement goes on to call the acts on All the Best’s lineup “songwriters who inspire me and give great hope for the future of the music we all love” and note that the idea for the event came from Prine’s visit to the Dominican Republic a few years ago.
All the Best is set for November 11–15, 2019, at the Breathless and Now Onyx resorts in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. All event information can be found here.
