The Grammy-winning singer had a musical career that spanned for about 50 years, and he came out victorious from his two battles with cancer during his lifetime. Prine did not have hit albums and singles, but many musicians, like Johnny Cash, have quoted him to be a source of songwriting inspiration.

Lambert, who had earlier covered a song written and sung by Prine titled "That's the Way That the World Goes' Round," honored him in her tweet.
