John Mellencamp Audio Tour Makes Debut

John Mellencamp audio driving tour, “Roots of An American Rocker” is now available at Jackson County Visitor Center. JCVC executive director Tina Stark announced this week.
John Mellencamp’s past is planted firmly in Seymour and Jackson County. Now that past has come alive with an audio driving tour, created by the Jackson County Visitor Center. “The Roots of An American Rocker,” is now available at the center and offers a glimpse of Mellencamp that most people have never gotten. The CD features stops at many of John’s old stomping grounds and a detailed map of Seymour.
Stops include Larrison’s Diner, Schneck Medical Center, Seymour High School, John’s Boyhood Home, Emerson Elementary School, First Presbyterian Church, Shields Junior High School, P.J.’s House, Dakota Ridge, Rockford Ridge, Rok-Sey Roller Rink, Southern Indiana Center for the Arts, Grandma Laura’s and One Chamber Square.
Various friends and acquaintances of John’s lend their voices and personal stories to the CD. Some of those voices include his mother and sister, his brother, former teachers, neighbors and a former girlfriend.
The CD is available for purchase at the Jackson County Visitor Center, 100 North Broadway Street, Seymour, for $13.99.
Due to licensing agreements, the CD cannot be shipped outside of Indiana. For information, contact the Jackson County Visitor Center at 888-524-1914.
