Legendary rocker, John Mellencamp sits down with Dan Rather on tonight’s edition of “The Big Interview.” Best known for his observational lyrics detailing small town life, Mellencamp will be inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame this June. Though Mellencamp continues to have a prolific and celebrated career, his short-lived decision to go by the stage name “Cougar” over forty years ago still torments him.

Dan’s hour long interview with John Mellencamp premieres April 24th at 9pE/8pC/6pP on AXS TV.
