McEntire went on to recall a moment from several years ago when she shared a stage with the ace Country songwriter. The event was the "Love Letter" fundraiser organized by Thistle Farms at the Ryan Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee. She added in the caption,

"I will always cherish that memory."

John Prine died earlier this week from COVID-19 at the age of 73. The country-folk singer and songwriter passed away at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, where he had been hospitalized and intubated since he started experiencing coronavirus symptoms.

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.
