John Prine Scores His First Billboard No. 1 Song With ‘I Remember Everything’

With his final song, John Prine has his first No. 1 song on a Billboard chart.

“I Remember Everything” bows at No. 1 on the Rock Digital Song Sales tally dated June 27 with 4,000 downloads sold in the week ending June 18 (following its June 11 release), according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

The standalone single exceeds Prine’s prior best of No. 2 on Rock Digital Song Sales, achieved with “In Spite of Ourselves” on the chart dated April 18, after the influential singer-songwriter died April 7 at age 73 of complications from COVID-19.

“I Remember Everything,” which Prine wrote with Pat McLaughlin, concurrently bows at No. 29 on the streaming-, airplay- and sales-based Hot Rock & Alternative Songs chart, having also drawn 289,000 U.S. streams. It also enters Country Digital Song Sales at No. 14.

The last song that Prine recorded (done so in his living room) was produced by Dave Cobb.
