Produced by Fogerty, one of rock’s most important artists and a national treasure who’s sold over 100 million records, 'Wrote A Song For Everyone' is a celebration of his iconic songbook and a collection of 12 classics and deep tracks from his remarkable canon of hits as well as two brand new songs, "Mystic Highway" and "Train of Fools." Fogerty performed alongside an array of today’s biggest superstars from the country, pop and rock worlds including Foo Fighters, Bob Seger, Keith Urban, Jennifer Hudson, Kid Rock, Brad Paisley, the Zac Brown Band, My Morning Jacket, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert and more. The album also sees Fogerty teaming with an acclaimed new band like Dawes, who were eager to acknowledge the groundbreaking songwriter/guitarist’s titanic influence. Fogerty also recorded his classic “Lodi” with his sons Shane and Tyler Fogerty at Abbey Road Studios in London.
As Fogerty explains in a cover story in the current (January/February) “Legends” issue of American Songwriter: “I encouraged each of these artists to come up with their own vision of my song, rather than just redoing what I’d recorded in the past. I was hoping they’d have some different twist so it would be fresh, so I’d have to work, too. I wanted it to be something new.”
'Wrote A Song For Everyone' marks Fogerty's ninth studio solo album since disbanding Creedence Clearwater Revival. Mixed by Bob Clearmountain, it was recorded in Los Angeles and Nashville except for "Proud Mary" which was recorded in New Orleans with AllenToussaint and the Rebirth Brass Band. Fogerty recorded “Fortunate Son” with Foo Fighters at their 606 studio using "the" legendary Neve recording console featured in the #1 iTunes documentary Sound City. Fogerty has performed with the Sound City Players, the all-star band assembled by Dave Grohl to play the music created for the film and other classics, at recent shows at both the Sundance Film Festival and the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.
John Fogerty will tour in 2013 and look for him to be at this year’s SXSW in Austin (dates/events TBA).

Tyler and Underwood previously performed together in 2011 at the Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas. The duo brought the arena crowd to its feet and wowed millions of viewers at home performing Underwood's No. 1 song "Undo It" followed by Aerosmith's "Walk This Way." Watch the performance below.
"CMT Crossroads: Steven Tyler & Carrie Underwood From the Pepsi Super Bowl Fan Jam" premieres on CMT on Feb. 4 at 11 p.m. ET/PT. This is the second year "CMT Crossroads" will broadcast from the Super Bowl Fan Jam.
Previous episodes of "Crossroads" have included Def Leppard and Taylor Swift, Bon Jovi and Sugarland, Sting and Vince Gill, The Pretenders and Faith Hill, The Doobie Brothers and Luke Bryan, Train and Martina McBride, John Mayer and Keith Urban, Jimmy Buffet and Zac Brown Band, Bryan Adams and Jason Aldean, 38 Special and Trace Atkins, Lindsey Buckingham and Little Big Town, John Fogerty and Keith Urban, Los Lonely Boys and Ronnie Milsap, Heart and Wynonna, John Mayer and Brad Paisley, Lynyrd Skynryd and Montgomery Gentry, Dave Matthews and Emmylou Harris, Pat Benatar and Martina McBride, John Mellancamp and Kenny Chesney, ZZ Top and Brooks & Dunn and Kid Rock with Hank Williams Jr.
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Steven Tyler has purchased a home in Maui, Hawaii for $4.8 million. It was listed for $6.5 million.
The 3,000-square-foot home, which rests on a quarter acre of land, has two bedrooms and 3½ bathrooms. Located on the water in a nature preserve area near Wailea, the pentagonal home has several outdoor decks overlooking the coastline. There's also a floor-to-ceiling aquarium and an infinity-edge saltwater pool. Can I be your caretaker while you're gone Steve? I'd be glad to do it.
Yes, it's another Steven Tyler 'Creepy Leer of the Night' from American Idol on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' on January 19. In case you've missed them, it's a tradition started last year by Kimmel, and they are hilarious.

They have been waiting for the right time, and now is the time. This is going to be an unforgettable evening.”
