MELLENCAMP & STEPHEN KING’S PLAY OUT IN 2012
Brought To You By VH1’s Dave Basner

The musical that John Mellencamp and Stephen King have been writing for over a decade, Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, is scheduled to debut at a theater in Atlanta this week and run through mid-May. The show centers on the deaths of two brothers and a young girl, and the legend that grows out of the tragedy. John told us more about the production.

“The musical basically takes place in present day and in the late ‘40s and it takes place in Mississippi. So what does that let me do? Write blues. Original, delta, blues, zydeco-type of songs which I normally wouldn’t do, but I love that music – plus I get to write songs without the ideas of traditional choruses and hook lines and all that kind of stuff.”

If it’s successful, look for it to play near you.
