Oulu, Finland, April 25, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Fans of John Fogerty, the former leader of Creedence Clearwater Revival, have started a facebook campaign to get Fogerty's single from his new record, Wrote A Song For Everyone, to the top of the charts. Alessio "Micio Nero" Quirino, a fan from Oulu, Finland, started the grassroots campaign as a way to honor Fogerty, who is celebrating the 40th year of his solo career this year. A Rock and Roll- and Songwriters Hall Of Fame inductee and writer of classics like Proud Mary, Fortunate Son and Centerfield, Fogerty has never had a #1 hit single in the USA. His former band, Creedence Clearwater Revival, famously holds the record for the most #2 hits without ever reaching #1, with 5 songs reaching the #2 spot between 1969 and 1970.
From John's dazzling new composition "Mystic Highway" to the powerful new version of his soulful "Long As I Can See the Light," to the boisterous renditions of "Fortunate Son" and - yes - "Lodi," and to the down home good time feel of "Almost Saturday Night," this album seems to have something for everyone... just like it says in the album title.
The campaign's facebook page can be found at facebook.com/JohnFogertyTo1
Wrote A Song For Everyone, featuring reinterpretations of Fogerty's catalogue with guest artists Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley, Foo Fighters, Jennifer Hudson, Zac Brown Band, My Morning Jacket and more, will be released May 28th on Vanguard Records.
