Contestants in televised singing competitions have been covering John Fogerty’s songs for years, but now some hopeful up-and-coming vocalists will get actual advice from the Creedence Clearwater Revival leader himself.
Last night Fogerty’s official twitter account tweeted, “John joins NBC’s “The Voice” as Adam Levine‘s advisor. #TeamAdam.”
And it seems that Adam’s Maroon 5 bandmates are excited about the news as well, as they tweeted “Welcome @John_Fogerty as @adamlevine’s Advisor on this season of @NBCTheVoice. #TheVoice.” Perhaps this could lead to a collaboration?

This comes as Fogerty has wrapped up his “1969” tour, where he focused on material from the three albums Creedence Clearwater Revival released during that year: Bayou County (which featured “Born on the Bayou” and “Proud Mary”), Green River (“Green River,” “Bad Moon Rising”) and Willy and the Poor Boys (“Down on the Corner,” “Fortunate Son”). It also coincides with Fogerty’s memoirs, Fortunate Son: My Life, My Music, due out October 6.
The next season of The Voice begins September 21 on NBC.
