(The Six O'Clock Triple Shot is a daily feature of three songs that share a common theme, heard weeknights on 94.9 WMMQ)

John Mellencamp has announced a North American Tour, as of now, set to kick off in late June. There have only been 10 shows announced as of now, with a significant hole in action during the first part of July. A time frame very popular with summer festivals. (Are you thinking what I'm thinking??? CG?) As of now, the closest show will be the tour finale, August 1, 2014 at Caesars-Windsor. But, the fact that Mellencamp will hit the road once again after a five-year hiatus is welcomed news for his fans.

Tonight, we mark the announcement with three from Johnny Cougar...err...Mellencamp for your Six O'Clock Triple Shot. From Uh-Huh "The Authority Song", "Rain on the Scarecrow" from Scarecrow, and "Check It Out" from 1987's The Lonesome Jubilee, only on 949. WMQQ!
