06/07/2018 - John Mellencamp holds a distinct station among chroniclers of the modern American experience. As has been borne out in nearly four decades of songs, more than 20 of them top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, the lexicon of his story telling is that of the farmer, the small town purveyor, the boundless spaces sprawled between the headlines. But don’t expect him to expound much on that ethos, or even take credit for his role in giving voice to topics that have inspired all stripes of social activism, including Farm Aid.

As the Grammy winner, member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and ASCAP Founders Award honoree prepares to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame on June 14, he tells Billboard his songs always choose him, and he’s more convinced than ever the barometer he continues to hold up on new album Sad Clowns & Hillbillies is misunderstood by the majority of his audience.

05/25/2018 - From a persistent pop star pigeonholed by the nom de plume given him early on, to the Cougar-less blue-collar troubadour bent on asserting his social conscious as his career evolved, John Mellencamp has always been most concerned with asserting his integrity.

05/11/2018 - What does it take to be a rock ‘n’ roll legend? At age 66, John Mellencamp probably never asked himself this question. Yet despite his indifference to the whole idea of fame — his aversion to it, actually — that is what he has become. Go figure.

05/10/2018 - A tremendous release for fans of John Mellencamp, Plain Spoken - From the Chicago Theatre offers not only an intense audio/visual concert experience, but also an intimate look inside the artist's life. The feature-length, 16-song concert is presented in two ways: 1) as a straightforward (and frickin' awesome) heartland rock show, 2) that same show with Mellencamp's "commentary" running over it. The actual audio sounds like more of a prepared, biographical work rather than what has become the standard "describe what's on screen" kind of audio track. In other words, this commentary commands attention, with Mellencamp delivering his life story with quiet urgency. Read the complete review after the jump. Read More
05/08/2018 - A songwriter, storyteller, musician, actor, artist, and social activist, Mellencamp has recently brought together the many facets of his personality to create the beautifully-authored Plain Spoken: From the Chicago Theatre. Taking place at the historic venue just hours from his native Indiana, this is one concert experience for fans to truly cherish. The package includes two versions of the same concert: one the standard addition, while the other contains voice-over commentary from the man himself. Additionally, for those inclined to enjoy Mellencamp in auditory format alone, a CD contains the audio of the concert performance without any visual accompaniments.

05/08/2018 - "In my mind, John Mellencamp is a rocking version of Merle Haggard," says Jake Owen. "He's able to say things simply about America in a way where everyone understood it."

Baked into the foundation of any art form is the knowledge that everything new is built on some adaptation of what came before it. Read the complete Billboard article after the jump. Read More
