The Legendary Roots Rocker
Singer-songwriter pioneer John Mellencamp continues to tour playing music from his back catalog as well as more recent albums, including 2022's Strictly A One-Eyed Jack. In addition to his musical career, Mellencamp is also an accomplished painter, actor, and film director. Don't miss the 'Voice of the Heartland' when he takes to the stage in your town this year!
Mellencamp's career stretches back some over thirty years, and he has molded his brand of dusky heartland rock to every new genre and style that comes along. From Springsteen-Esque anthems to stripped down, T-Bone Burnett produced country songs, his sharp and simple lyrical style that is unerringly able to pinpoint the mood of the nation has continued to shine through. Among his best-known tracks are 'Jack and Diane', which spent four weeks at Number 1, and 'Hurts So Good'. Along the way, he's been awarded a Grammy and been inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
