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

There's exciting news out of John Mellencamp Camp (Ha! Cheesy, but still funny...)!! Republic Records announced a lifetime contract with the Seymour, IN native. The first release on the label, Plain Spoken, will, reportedly, be produced by T-Bone Burnett, who has been a part of Mellencamp's last three efforts. Expect the new LP to drop sometime later this year.

To mark said occasion, three classics from Johnny Cougar...er...John Cougar...er John Cougar Mellencamp...er...

"Rain on the Scarecrow" kicks off tonight's Six O'Clock Triple Shot, followed by the forgotten flavor from 1980's American Fool, "Hand To Hold On To". "Crumblin' Down" from Uh-Huh rounds it out tonight on 94.9 WMMQ!
