According to Sacks + Co., “Acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer John Prine is debuting a new cover of “My Old Kentucky Home, Goodnight” today. Listen/share HERE. Released in advance of the Kentucky Derby this weekend, “My Old Kentucky Home, Goodnight” was written by Stephen Collins Foster and originally recorded by Prine in 2004 as part of a compilation album created in Foster’s honor.
