Mellencamp to play State Fair

On his website, singer-songwriter John Mellencamp has listed among his scheduled appearances a stop in Minot on July 19 at the North Dakota State Fair.

Originally billing himself as John Cougar, during his nearly four decade long career Mellencamp has won a Grammy for “Hurts So Good” and put out 22 top-40 hits. He is currently working on a new album, to follow up “No Better Than This” released in 2010.

The State Fair has not yet released its list of headliners.
