Posted: Updated:

Charleston, S.C. (WCIV) -- The musician who painted the lyrics to "Pink Houses" will rock the North Charleston Performing Arts Center this fall.

John Mellencamp's camp has announced he will play November 9th, with tickets going on sale Friday August 5th.

Previously known as John Cougar and John Cougar Mellencamp, the singer songwriter is known for his acoustic, American rock sound. His hits include, "Hurt So Good", "Jack and Diane", "Small Town", "I Need a Lover", and "Cherry Bomb".

But what you may not know is the singer reportedly has a home on Daufuskie Island, S.C.

Mellencamp was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2008. He is also one of the founding members of Farm Aid, an organization that helped raise money for farmers.

Again, tickets go on sale Friday, August 10th at 10 a.m. at ticket master or the performing arts center.
