John Mellencamp's House


Bloomington, Indiana (IN), US
This is the Monroe Lake home of the rock singer-songwriter, John ‘Cougar’ Mellencamp. His other long time Indiana home is featured on this site, as well as his South Carolina vacation home. Born in Indiana, it’s likely a nice way for the singer songwriter to stay close to family and connected to his roots. Mellencamp rose to fame in the 1980s, with his distinct vocal style, and ballad songwriting, and starting in 1982 he put out a string of Top 10 singles, including "Hurts So Good," "Jack & Diane," "Crumblin' Down," "Pink Houses," "Lonely Ol' Night," "Small Town," "R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.," "Paper in Fire,” and "Cherry Bomb." He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2008.

Mellencamp is one of America's most beloved songwriters, who has made their stamp on the rock genre. He is one of the most widely influential rock musicians of his generation, citing influences from Bob Dylan, James Brown, and Woody Guthrie. Still listened to by millions today, this rocker has grown to the status of global icon.

My name is Jonathan cherry. I am an Indiana resident that's played in Christian rock festivals in central Indiana including the bears of blue river festival in Shelbyville Indiana when they had a worship day. Of all the celebrities I wanted to meet you were my biggest inspiration. It would make my day for you to call me at 3174210276 and talk to me for a little while about music and life. Jon
