John Mellencamp shares new single, gets engaged to Meg Ryan

He was just here in Kingston last month, now John Mellencamp has released the first single from a covers album called Other People’s Stuff.  It’s his 24th album, available on Friday December 7th.  

The politically-charged track is a reworking of a folk song he performed at the White House in 2010, check out his version of “Eyes on the Prize.” 

John has never been one to shy away from speaking his mind on politics, remember when he told the crowd at the Leon’s Centre to “build a wall”?

I had the chance to talk with longtime Mellencamp guitarist Mike Wanchic and he told me the album came from the band just messing around playing some of their favourite riffs.

In other John Mellencamp news, did anyone spot him with Meg Ryan around town?  They’re now officially engaged – she posted a drawing on Instagram with the caption “ENGAGED.”

Maybe it’s because I don’t keep up with celebrity gossip or because I forgot Meg Ryan even existed, but I didn’t know about this until Suzanne spilled the beans during another ticket giveaway on Big Afternoons.
