I haven't been on here in like a yeaaaar, haha. But I heard a sample of John's new single, "Grandview", and I just knew I had to get on and post about it. What does this song sound like to you? From what I heard, his voice is definitely a 1990s era John Mellencamp to me. If you listen to "Whenever We Wanted", and compare that album to "Grandview", you'll hear that his voice is eerily similar. I also found that the guitars and music sound like that of the early 90s. My best guess is that maybe "Grandview" was recorded in the same sessions as "Whenever We Wanted", but didn't make it on the album for whatever reason.
Somebody else here mentioned that the album sounded more like a late 80s Mellencamp, like the "Lonesome Jubilee" sessions. Could be. But I heard more early 90s personally. Either way, we all know and can tell as Mellencamp fans that this was definitely his voice 100,000 cigarettes ago! Haha! This is simply a song from a previous record that he has just released now.
As for the song, I do like it a LOT. I think it's catchy, and will make lots of fans happy who didn't like his newest records so much. It will be very interesting to hear him play this one live, as it's most likely a song from 20+ years ago. What do you guys think about it? Smiley

I think ''Grandview'' is terrific,  if it's an older song it's more likely from the 2007 ''Freedom's Road'' sessions, the Martina McBride thing came out of nowhere. I wonder what other surprises John's got in store for us on the new album, can't wait to hear it.

It's awesome live! John was in Nashville Friday night (Feb 24th) to record CMT Crossroads with Darius Rucker. This was the first song of John's that they performed together. It was a barn burner! What I loved the most is that the folks around us were clearly there for Darius and they were really impressed with this song.
It is supposed to air on March 24th. I cannot wait to see what makes the show and what doesn't.

Grandview takes you back to a rockin' Mellencamp.  You've got to love that!
