Fogerty sits in with Paisley
Friday, August 23, 2013
– John Fogerty made a guest appearance with Brad Paisley last night at Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, Cal. to perform the album's Hot Rod Heart,
a Fogerty original on his most recent disc "Wrote a Song For Everyone." Fogerty also joined Paisley for an encore of Centerfield, Alcohol
and Proud Mary.
Fogerty and Pasiely recorded Hot Rod Heart
together at Ocean Way Studio in Nashville last year, and the two have wanted to perform it live together ever since.
Of the inspiration for the song, Fogerty said, "I have always loved car songs. The idea of getting in your car and running off down the road is very exhilarating. To me, the best car songs have a certain musical horizon, so you kind of set the mood musically at the beginning. Cars represent freedom, adventure and the chance to experience something brand new. I captured what my imagination saw and felt in this song."
Fogerty is on the road in October and November in support of his new CD.

Nothing says summertime in America like an afternoon or evening spent at a baseball park, and no trip to a professional diamond is complete without a rousing rendition of the John Fogerty classic single, Centerfield. Virtually every baseball stadium across the country plays this clap-inducing ode to the National Pastime at least once throughout the course of a game, so it is only fitting that Geffen Records chose to reissue Fogerty's solo album that bears the same name as its hit single in ...
John Fogerty released an album as "The Blue Ridge Rangers" in 1974, a country covers disc where he played every instrument and scored a minor hit with Rockin' All Over the World. Leaving behind his Creedence Clearwater Revival Days, Fogerty launched a very successful solo career.
But now he has returned to his Blue Ridge Ranger days with a difference - this is a group concept as Fogerty includes such stalwarts as Kenny Aronoff, Buddy Miller, Greg Leisz, Hunter Perrin, Jason Mowery, ...
