The ASCAP Foundation honored Farm Aid board member John Mellencamp last Thursday night at New York’s Lincoln Center with its prestigious Champion Award for being a wonderful humanitarian artist. Carolyn and I were so proud to be in the audience. John performed a few songs, including a couple of new ones. John is a true heart, wickedly funny, with a never-give-up-the fight commitment for the farmers. We are lucky that he’s a Farm Aid leader! The Farm Aid staff made a homemade card to congratulate John, and Carolyn hand-delivered it to his dressing room after the award show.
