Rock singer-songwriter and Seymour, Ind., native John Mellencamp fell in love with music at an early age and was fronting a soul band by the time he was 14. After releasing a few albums, he broke out in 1979 with his first hit, “I Need A Lover.” American Fool, 1982’s best-selling album, featured “Hurts So Good” and the No. 1 single “Jack & Diane.” In the 1980s, it’s estimated Mellencamp played 1,000 shows promoting hits such as “Small Town,” “Cherry Bomb” and “Crumblin’ Down.” In the early 1990s, he released a string of successful albums, including Dance Naked, which included the hit “Wild Night.” Mellencamp’s awards are as expansive as his hits. He is the recipient of a 2001 Billboard Century award, as well as a Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting from the Americana Music Association. In 2008, he was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame by Billy Joel. Building on his highly successful career, which spans decades, Mellencamp continues to tour and work on new music projects.
