John Mellencamp

[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]John Mellencamp[/lastfm]‘s reputation as a champion of small town America comes largely from his 1985 song Small Town and the album it was released on.

Mellencamp credits that album, entitled Scarecrow, with changing the direction of his career and essentially creating the genre of alternative country. Whether or not he truly created alternative country, there’s little doubt that he’s stuck with it over the years. Anyone who saw those inescapable truck commercials a few years ago can attest to that.
