Three videos to get you ready for tonight's show by the venerable singer-songwriter.

1. The story behind "Bruised Orange (Chain of Sorrow)." In this clip from his 1980 appearance on "Soundstage," he explains what inspired the song, followed by a live performance.

2. "I wrote that as a mailman." In this clip he explains to Bobby Bare how he wrote "Sam Stone" while working his mail route, and performs a short version of the song.

3. Emmylou Harris joins Prine for "Angel from Montgomery." A version of this song, with Emmylou, appears on his new live album.

Tickets for tonight's show are still available at GrizTix, starting at $45.
