This spring, Fogerty celebrated his more than 45-year music career with the release of his ninth solo album. Wrote a Song for Everyone takes its fitting title from a Fogerty song that first appeared on Green River, the 1969 album by Creedence Clearwater Revival, the legendary group that Fogerty led so brilliantly.
Creedence Clearwater Revival was one of the most quintessential singles bands of the late 1960s and early 1970s with hits such as “Bad Moon Rising,” “Proud Mary,” and “Born on the Bayou.” After several chart-topping hits and an appearance at Woodstock, the band would later break-up. Leader John, not surprisingly, would go on to have an impressive solo career that includes nine studio albums and the rare distinction of being named to both Rolling Stone magazine's list of 100 Greatest Guitarists (at number 40) and its list of 100 Greatest Singers (at number 72).
Wrote a Song for Everyone is a testament to the fact that the songs written by John Fogerty over the past forty-five years continue to speak in a powerful way to generations of music makers and music lovers. The result is an intimate celebration of the impact that Fogerty's iconic writing has had on some of the most acclaimed and popular artists in music today. As Fogerty explains, “Writing songs can be very private, but making music is best made with other people. And on this album, I’ve had the honor of making music with many of my favorite people in music now.”
Included in the list of artists that Fogerty collaborated with during the making of Wrote a Song for Everyone are the Foo Fighters, Kieth Urban, Miranda Lambert, Zac Brown Band, Kid Rock, and Bob Seger. These collaborations create a new and vital piece of music that brings the legend that is John Fogerty together with some of the most exciting names in music today.
For Fogerty this is the album of a lifetime. As he says, “I’m honored and humbled that my music still means something to so many people including the artists on this album. I love making music. So the idea that I get to do this for a living still instead of selling insurance, well, that means the world to me.”
