Critical Praise for New John Fogerty Album (Tour Dates Announced)
“The result is some of the best new music Fogerty has made since, well, Creedence. His singing is strong and engaged, even scalding when he goes up against Kid Rock in ‘Born on the Bayou,’ and the current state of Fogerty’s guitar playing is summed up in his shootout with country picker Brad Paisley in ‘Hot Rod Heart’…Looking back at these songs, in this company, has brought out a fire and nerve in Fogerty. He sounds as renewed in these performances as the riffs and stories.” (Five star review) – ROLLING STONE
(Press Release from MSO PR)
JOHN FOGERTY’s new album WROTE A SONG FOR EVERYONE continues to build critical momentum, receiving one stellar review after another. The media is hailing the FOGERTY-produced album–which marks the Grammy Award-winning Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee’s highest-debuting album (#3 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album chart) of his career (including Creedence Clearwater Revival releases)–as one of his finest works.

His entire release night concert in Los Angeles was simulcast by KLOS and telecast by AXS-TV. Multiple SiriusXM channels have featured interview and music content with John about Wrote a Song for Everyone. Fogerty was featured in an extended interview on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast. The single “Mystic Highway” is getting airplay across formats and has become the #1 Most Requested Song at tastemaker station KCSN in Los Angeles. Album cut “Fortunate Son” with guest artists Foo Fighters is currently up to #4 on the Classic Rock singles chart.
On the concert front, JOHN FOGERTY—one of rock’s most important artists and a national treasure who’s sold over 100 million albums–will be rockin’ all over the world in 2013 and 2014.
