From pop star to one of the most highly regarded songwriters of this generation, we’re exploring the entirety of John Mellencamp’s career this Sunday! First up, a documentary that follows Mellencamp on a 31 date tour with Wilie Nelson and Bob Dylan and goes behind-the-scenes of his album, No Better Than This. With a career spanning over 35 years, John Mellencamp has drawn inspiration from his native Midwest to create songs that speak to all of America. His classics, like “Small Town,” “Jack & Diane” and “Pink Houses,” tell powerful, poignant stories of ordinary people trying to live their lives with meaning and integrity. John Mellencamp: It’s About You is the first inside look at the man behind those beloved songs. Then, we’ll hear all of those songs LIVE with the concert spectacular, Plain Spoken. Filmed at the landmark Chicago Theatre, just 250 miles away from his upbringing in Indiana, this stunning cinematic concert film captures John with his full band. He’ll also be joined by special guest Carlene Carter, the daughter of June Carter. Tune in to watch them perform some of his most cherished songs including “Small Town,” “Minutes to Memories,” “Pop Singer,” “Longest Days,” “The Full Catastrophe,” “Rain on the Scarecrow,” “Paper in Fire,” “Authority Song,” “Pink Houses,” and “Cherry Bomb”. Watch them back-to-back this Sunday starting at 8/7c!
