Read The Digital Edition Of The May/June 2017 Issue, Featuring John Mellencamp

The May/June issue of American Songwriter is now available for digital download. Our cover story features storied songwriter John Mellencamp, who collaborates with Carlene Carter on his newest album Sad Clowns & Hillbillies. He also discusses the longevity of his multi-decade career, and how, even after all these years, he can't ignore the siren sound of the muse. We also spend time with Marty Stuart, whose electric new album Way Out West explores the sonic landscape of California and the Mojave Desert. Aimee Mann discusses the frank title of her affecting new album, Mental Illness. We also take a look at the current state of health care available to artists, and how Music Health Alliance is working to make care more accessible.
