I can remember a day long ago when I had a conversation with a"man who makes the rain" down "in the canyon" where "smoke starts to rise..." all rock and roll quotes...
I had one of my long-winded chats...the enemy of the
person in "treatment," for mindselfless listening.
He listened awhile and he said "G-e- r" ( my last name)...the thorn in every rose. "...I know that heavy down to
be true...
I picture coming to a rock concert sometimes, and I can see the performers sensing this "blue" come in, bringing everyone down...It aint a matter of hurting anyone
but a matter of ruining a good time...and of course splitting when it's over. Taken 4 granted...judgement is coming. Ha-ha-ha (ur mom too?) on my own.👑U take a good time a little too far som lolololetimes...if no one rules U and U don't rule anyone else, is it like going 35miles over the speed limit though??? Does someone have to rule U? I don,'t know.. your plausible analysis is, so, like, who cares?
Ever see people having a good time and you bring bad vibes in and they have to stop for you and  it holds them up? Oh yeah "G-e-r..." I can't laugh! U bum me out!" "I gotta laugh!"What??? I do not allow songs that I may have created  under the umbrella of a raised hand with a contribution or two to be copyrighted by some light who didn't ate them...basically
If I thought I was an asset, I would have become a groupie and made the scene  a long timer ago!!! Don't really know why. make your OWN priority the biggie is also not right. But yeah, U could have people in your corner.But I mean, if someone's gonna call your number, you can't really getaway from it...although a million doctors and therapists assure you it ain't reality. There is only one reality.
But okay I had my first sample of "teevee psychiatry" yesterday. It ain't an easy game to play. Well there you go. Who cares what I said enough to even bother listening at all? So...wham bam thankyou, ma'am! At the end you just turn it off, period., and go. I heard the latest poor mama doc grasping at straws for a resolution..."done"! One more "I beg of you" from "the one"...
But yeah... "I'm Losing You" has a new feel to it. Like a "silent screaming T"...Nothing is new under the sun. Release me¥¥ me, jcm!😇😴laughing so much at a geni. I do not.
Later. I called it private time. 👎?

John taped an interview at his Indiana Art Studio with Jane Pauley of the CBS Sunday Morning Show, in July of 2017, discussing his then recent release Sad Clowns & Hillbillies, among other interesting and intriguing topics and even takes Jane on a motorcycle ride! CBS Sunday Morning airs at 9 AM ET. Check your local listings for airtimes.

Luckily I bought TWO "No Better than This"  Tour shirts because I have worn them out. 

I had to make them V-Necks but the colors are fab and go with everything. 

I must say, John & the marketing team - always select a dark shirt - earthy.  But this one is my absolute favorite.  I can't believe its 8 years old!!

There will be a pre sale Wednesday, June 27th, beginning at 10 AM EDT through Thursday, June 28th ending at 10 PM EDT. Learn how to join and access our pre-sales HERE. Public tickets go on sale on Friday, June 29, at 10 a.m. EDT.

Farm Aid's Music And Food Festival Heads To Connecticut On Sat., Sept. 22nd
06.25.2018 -

Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Neil Young and Dave Matthews to headline Farm Aid 2018 at XFINITY Theatre in Hartford, Conn.

HARTFORD, Conn. — Farm Aid’s annual music and food festival featuring family farmers, homegrown food, inspiring music and agrarian experiences will come to Connecticut for the first time on Saturday, Sept. 22, at XFINITY Theatre in Hartford, Connecticut. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, June 29, at 10 a.m. EDT.

Farm Aid 2018 will feature performances by Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Neil Young and Dave Matthews with Tim Reynolds, as well as Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Kacey Musgraves, Margo Price, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, and Particle Kid. Additional artists will be announced later this summer.

This year, the organization undertakes the planning of Farm Aid 2018 in an economic climate similar to the one that sparked the first Farm Aid concert. Net farm income has dropped 53 percent since 2013 and median farm income is expected to be -$1,316 in 2018. In New England alone, more than 10,000 family dairy farmers have gone out of business since 1970. Farmer stress is growing, and the suicide rate for farmers is nearly five times that of the general population.

“Family farmers are the backbone of our country,” Farm Aid President and founder Willie Nelson said. “But today, they are endangered. Whether we live in cities like Hartford or the rural areas of New England, each of us has the power to create positive, lasting change in our farm and food system and strengthen farm families to help them stay on the land for generations to come.”

Connecticut agriculture ranks third in New England in farm sales, contributing up to $4 billion to the state’s economy. Farming and food production generate 21,000 jobs in Connecticut annually and provide environmental and social benefits that significantly enhance communities’ quality of life. Hartford County, where Farm Aid 2018 will take place, represents a rare bright spot in the country, having gained more than 100 farms since 2007.

Farm Aid 2018 festivalgoers will experience family farm agriculture firsthand via Farm Aid’s HOMEGROWN Concessions® and the HOMEGROWN Village. HOMEGROWN Concessions® showcases family farm-identified ingredients at all food stands, including the HOMEGROWN Youthmarket, which sells fresh local fruit and more, and is operated by young people involved in farming and farmers markets. HOMEGROWN Concessions® includes recycling and composting (utilizing compostable serviceware and packaging) with a goal of zero waste. Farm Aid’s HOMEGROWN Village features hands-on activities about soil, water, energy, food and farming. Festivalgoers can hear farmers and artists discuss pressing issues and share inspiring stories on the FarmYard Stage and attend demonstrations to learn agrarian skills and celebrate the culture of agriculture in the HOMEGROWN Skills tent.

Tickets for Farm Aid 2018 will go on sale Friday, June 29, at 10 a.m. EDT. Ticket prices range from $54.50 to $279.50 and will be available for purchase at and by phone at 800-745-3000. A limited number of pre-sale tickets will be sold beginning at 10 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, June 26,

Farm Aid is teaming up with IfOnly to offer a collection of experiences that give fans once-in-a-lifetime memories at Farm Aid 2018, from behind-the-scenes tours to signed memorabilia from this year’s headliners. People can purchase and bid on these special offerings starting June 25 at

Farm Aid welcomes the participation of the business community and offers corporate sponsorship and VIP hospitality opportunities. For more information, contact Glenda Yoder at

Farm Aid’s mission is to build a vibrant, family farm-centered system of agriculture in America. Farm Aid artists and board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews host an annual festival to raise funds to support Farm Aid’s work with family farmers and to inspire people to choose family farm food. For more than 30 years, Farm Aid, with the support of the artists who contribute their performances each year, has raised more than $53 million to support programs that help farmers thrive, expand the reach of the Good Food Movement, take action to change the dominant system of industrial agriculture and promote food from family farms.

**Editors and Producers Note: Advance credentials are required for all media to attend Farm Aid 2018. Please visit by Friday, Sept. 14, to apply. Media can download official Farm Aid photos and videos at**

I enjoyed reading the article that was posted in this site about Carlene Carter Cash who has become a sister-type friend to johncougarmellon. I enjoy their harmonious karma together on his last album...another to come, I assume...I l.u.v. l.u.v. l u.v. "All night talk Radio" to that point where it has become a natural part of me... "A hundred thousand million souls..." Huh If you tell it straight, it could be a billion year old carbon, too...but the way that song sounds...the beautiful karma shines and its total loveliness is really immortal..and if course the neat part of rock and roll fame is that that kind of stuff lives past our hundred year type quotient..I know you guys don't need a private compliment! And the funny song "Sugar Hill Mountain" is fun too
Pilltime! Later
