The Roots of An American Rocker

John Mellencamp’s past is planted firmly in Seymour and Jackson County. That past comes alive with an audio driving tour, created by the Jackson County Visitor Center. "The Roots of An American Rocker," offers a glimpse of Mellencamp that most people have never seen. The CD features stops at many of John’s old stomping grounds and a detailed map of Seymour.

The CD is available for purchase at the Jackson County Visitor Center, 100 North Broadway Street, Seymour, for $13.99. Due to licensing agreements, the CD cannot be shipped outside of Indiana. For information, contact the Jackson County Visitor Center at 812-524-1914.
