John Prine Makes First Billboard Airplay Chart Appearance on Kurt Vile’s ‘How Lucky’ Cover

Six months after his death, storied singer-songwriter John Prine ranks on a Billboard airplay chart for the first time.

Prine debuts on the Adult Alternative Songs tally dated Oct. 17 at No. 28, credited on Kurt Vile’s cover of Prine’s 1979 song “How Lucky,” for which Prine recorded new vocals last December.

Prine’s chart history includes 15 entries on the Billboard 200 albums survey over a career that began with his first entry, his self-titled debut, in 1972. From then through his April 2020 passing, his music appeared solely on album-based lists. After he died, multiple songs of his reached Billboard tallies as fans celebrated the Americana/folk icon. A posthumous release, “I Remember Everything,” subsequently debuted at No. 1 on the Rock Digital Song Sales chart in June.

Prine died on April 7 at age 73 due to complications from COVID-19.

“How Lucky” makes its first individual Billboard chart appearance. Prine’s LP Pink Cadillac, on which his original was first released, peaked at No. 152 on the Billboard 200 in September 1979.

Vile makes his third Adult Alternative Songs visit. He hit No. 1 for a week in March 2016 with “Pretty Pimpin” and reached No. 4 in November 2018 with “Loading Zones.”
