“Paradise” was the last song recorded at The Butcher Shoppe — the studio Prine founded with producer and engineer David Ferguson — before the building’s demolition later this year. Says Simpson of John Prine: “For myself along with many others, he was a mentor. He was very giving with his time and wisdom, and we were all grateful to get to know him.”
