October 30, 2013ALPHARETTA, Ga. – The Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park closed out their 2013 season with a bang, featuring music legend John Fogerty.
Fogerty, singer, songwriter and guitarist, has sold over 100 million records, earning 18 Gold Albums and 10 Platinum Albums. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993, won the Grammy Award for his album "Blue Moon Swamp" in 1997 and was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2005. He is also a BMI Icon Award winner.
Often called the "Father of the Flannel Shirt," Fogerty released his newest album, "Wrote a Song for Everyone," May 28, and it quickly rose to no. 3 on Billboard, the highest-debuting album of his entire career. Rolling Stone gave the album a rare "five-star" review. A celebration of his iconic songbook, the album is a collection of 14 songs – 12 classics and deep tracks (Creedence Clearwater Revival and solo material) from his remarkable canon of hits recorded in collaboration with today's biggest superstars from the country, pop and rock worlds, plus two brand new solo songs including the new single and video "Mystic Highway."
