John Prine on Songwriting and Survival

Singer and songwriter John Prine has been making music for more than 30 years, and his new CD Fair & Square, out April 26 on Oh Boy Records, features the vivid story-like songwriting and humor he's best known for.

Prine talks with Melissa Block about being honored by the Library of Congress, how he writes songs, and his experience as a survivor of neck cancer.
