Matthews is having a busy week in his makeshift home broadcast studio. He’s co-headlining an“At Home with Farm Aid” specialSaturday night with fellow Farm Aid founders and board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp. Fans may wonder whether that show, too, will provide a platform for Matthews or one of the other performers to pay additional homage to Prine, who died Wednesday after a weeks-long struggle with COVID-19.
Prine first recorded the song on his 1986 album “German Afternoons,” then participated in a duet version with Nanci Griffith on her 1993 album “Other Voices, Other Rooms.” The artist that has covered the song most in concert, curiously, is the Lemonheads.

I was thinking of somebody’s heart being pulled apart by G-force like that.”Matthews has not previously been known to cover “Speed of the Sound of Loneliness,” but “Angel from Montgomery” has been a staple for him over the years. According to
setlist.fm, he’s covered that Prine classic at least 91 times with the Dave Matthews Band and 42 times in his quieter duo shows with Tim Reynolds. Read more: Variety »
