Oh Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy! Number 3 on the Billboard 200 Chart the first week the album is out!!! CONGRATULATIONS, JOHN! Not a bit surprising to me! I bet it makes #1. It certainly should. I am so happy for you, John, I can hardly stand it. You definitely deserve all this recognition. Your incredible talent has not diminished one bit. Your wonderful voice, songwriting, guitar playing and knack for producing a great record has not changed since Creedence Clearwater. At 86 you're the same John Cameron Fogerty you were at 22. Every tract on this album is outstanding, pure Fogerty style. And you picked great artists to re-do your classic songs with you. "Proud Mary" was the perfect finale too. I am thrilled you are coming to Dallas and Houston. That is close enough to Bossier City, Louisiana, so I can finally get to see you. Although I'm hoping you also come to Louisiana.. So very happy for the quick success of your "Wrote a Song for Everyone" album. You are the BEST.

Oops, John! Forgive me. I typed my numbers backward and meant 68 NOT 86. Soooo sorry.
