Fiona Whelan Prine nominated for Natl. Council on the Arts by President Biden
If you only know Fiona Whelan Prine as John Prine's widow, it's time to give credit where credit is due-- which the President has just done!
The White House has shared via a press release that Prine has been nominated to join the National Council on the Arts, noting how she "brings an expansive viewpoint to the American roots music community,” and calling Prine “one of Nashville’s most prominent and dedicated philanthropists.”
In addition to being president of Oh Boy Records-- which her late husband started in 1981-- Prine is also the founder and president of the Hello in There Foundation, in addition to volunteering a tremendous amount of time for multiple philanthropic organizations, such as Thistle Farms.
