John Fogerty has been making great music for over 40 years. He’s still one of the biggest talents out there in any genre.
During the late ’60s he changed the sound of rock and roll and was responsible for some huge songs. He’s had his ups and downs since, but he’s always been an influence for other artists in all genres.
It seems that as artists age they are kind of drawn to country music. It’s a genre that lets an artist age. But I think there has always been a little rock influence in country music anyway. It’s great to have John Fogerty in the country world.
Mystic Highway – John Fogerty
What’s always been great about John Fogerty is his knack for finding great melodies. His songs are timeless and a big reason for that is because they’re so catchy. He spoke out with the lyrics about hot topics of the period back in the ’60s.
With this song he’s talking about life and where he is right now. It’s a reflective song, but what stands out to me is another great song melody.
I would say this one should become a hit for Fogerty. He’s still got it after all these years and hopefully he finds a home in country music because I think we would be lucky to have him.
What do you think of his new song?
