Thunder and PT want to celebrate Minnesota by sharing fun facts about the state with listeners on 102.9 The Wolf ... powered by Mr. Rooter Plumbing.

Today's Wolf Country Original needs no introduction... Prince!

Prince Rogers Nelson was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1958. A singer, guitarist, songwriter, producer, dancer, and performer, Prince is widely considered one of the most legendary musicians of his generation.

"Little Red Corvette" was Prince's first big crossover hit from funk and soul into mainstream music in 1983. Following that, Prince released Purple Rain in 1984 and skyrockted into stardom. He released 39 albums during his lifetime.

Paisley Park, the studio complex that Prince established in Chanhassen, Minnesota became Prince's sanctuary where he could create, record, and perform. Many artists, such as Madonna and Sheryl crow, have also come to record in the space. Following his death in 2016, guests could visit Paisley Park as a museum and experience the rich history that has come through those doors.
