As the singer and lead guitarist for Creedence Clearwater Revival, John Fogerty has written some of rock & roll’s most iconic songs including “Bad Moon Rising,” “Fortunate Son” “Down on the Corner” and “Proud Mary.” In just four years, Fogerty was the mastermind behind CCR’s multi-platinum albums Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bayou Country, Green River, Willy and the Poor Boys and more.
In 1985, Fogerty’s cemented his status as a solo artist with the baseball-themed smash hit “Centerfield,” which also garnered the singer-songwriter a Grammy nod for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance. While the hit didn’t take home the Grammy, Fogerty would go on to win Best Rock Album for his 1997 album Blue Moon Swamp. Fogerty’s music continued to clock the songsmith Grammy nods well into the 21st century, with the Recording Academy recognizing his 1986 song “Change in the Weather”–Fogerty re-recorded the song in 2009–for Best Solo Rock Vocal performance in 2010.
