For Better, Or Worse is a somewhat belated sequel to John Prine‘s 1999 release In Spite of Ourselves, this again finds Prine duetting with a variety of female country and alt-folk singers for a collection of country covers, all bar one track recorded live with both singers present. With the exception of wife Fiona Prine (who joins him on the lazily strummed My Happiness, the Betty Peterson Blasco song covered by Elvis on his very first recording), the only returning name from the first album is Iris DeMent. She appears on two numbers, both former Loretta Lynn and Ernest Tubb break-up hits, kicking the album off with the verse trading Who’s Gonna Take Your Garbage Out and returning later for Mr. & Mrs. Used To Be.
