John Mellencamp to appear on Late Night with Seth Meyers

John Mellencamp will appear as a guest on NBC-TV’s Late Night With Seth Meyers on Wednesday, April 26.

The Indiana rocker is gearing up for the April 28 release of his 23rd album, “Sad Clowns & Hillbillies.”

Country music legend Carlene Carter joins Mellencamp on the set, which was recorded at his Belmont Mall Studio in Belmont, IN, just outside of Bloomington.

“Carlene and I met,” Mellencamp tells Parade, “while she was performing in ‘Ghost Brothers Of Darkland County’, for which Stephen King wrote the libretto and I wrote the music.’

The pair will team for a North American tour in support of the project, with shows staring June 5 in Denver, CO; Emmylou Harris and folk-pop sister duo Lily & Madeleine are also on the bill.

“Sad Clowns & Hillbillies” has been previewed with the single, “Grandview”, which features guest Martina McBride.
