Watch the teaser for new doc on John Prine’s Oh Boy Records

The film will be released in conjunction with the label’s 40th anniversary.

The teaser for a new documentary about Oh Boy Records, the Nashville music label founded by the late John Prine, has been released.

Prine founded the company in the early ’80s with his longtime manager Al Bunetta. To celebrate its 40th anniversary this year, Oh Boy has announced a line-up of special releases, including a documentary about the label’s history, as Rolling Stone report.

The documentary—which will be released on Oh Boy’s YouTube page—will include archival footage of Prine, as well as exclusive interviews with his wife and Oh Boy president Fiona Whelan Prine. Singer-songwriter Todd Snider, who released two albums on the label, will also appear in the documentary.


Aside from the film, Oh Boy also plans to release a special edition of Prine’s self-titled 1971 debut LP to mark its 50th anniversary this year.

Prine died in April last year from complications related to COVID-19. His final album, The Tree of Forgiveness, arrived in 2018.
