Join us as John Mellencamp performs a few songs and sits down with entertainment lawyer Allen Grubman for an interview on his life and career.

John Mellencamp’s music career spans more than 35 years, during which time he has grown from pop idol to one of the most acclaimed mature songwriters of his generation. He has released 26 albums, with domestic sales exceeding 40 million units; among other honors, he has been nominated for 13 Grammys® and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Responsible for 22 Top 40 hits, he holds the record for the most tracks by a solo artist to hit #1 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

Mellencamp’s social activism was one of the key catalysts for the launch of Farm Aid, the concert series and organization that has addressed the struggle of American family farmers for 26 years. His latest album, No Better Than This, was produced by T-Bone Burnett and recorded on break days during a national tour with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson. Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, a Southern gothic musical on which he collaborated with Stephen King, had its world premiere in 2012 at Atlanta’s Alliance Theatre.
