An American musician and singer-songwriter, Fogerty is a rock icon. This summer he will be touring the U.S. as part of his “1969” world tour, which focuses on the music from the pivotal year when Fogerty wrote and recorded three separate albums with Creedence Clearwater Revival. His first-ever memoir, titled “Fortunate Son: My Life, My Music,” is scheduled for an Oct. 6 release on Little Brown.
Performing her new single “Dear Future Husband” on “The Voice,” Meghan Trainor will also appear on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Thursday, May 21 and “Today” on Friday, May 22. She vaulted to the top of dozens of worldwide charts with her latest album, “Title.” Trainor’s “The MTrain” tour begins in July.

The album has since achieved platinum sales in 18 countries, including the United States and his native United Kingdom, where it was the biggest selling album of 2014. This summer Ed will perform his biggest headlining shows to date, including his just-announced first NFL stadium show at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., and three sold-out nights at London’s Wembley Stadium.
