Following music legend John Mellencamp on his 2009 concert tour with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson, IT’S ABOUT YOU traces the rock legend’s journey to American musical landmarks where his critically acclaimed album No Better Than This begins to take shape. From Sun Studio in Memphis, where Elvis Presley recorded his greatest hits, to recording in the same San Antonio hotel room where legendary bluesman Robert Johnson created his seminal work, Mellencamp reveals an emotional and contemplative side never before seen by the public. An intimate portrait of a musical genius, IT’S ABOUT YOU transcends the boundaries of traditional music documentaries to become a soulful meditation on Mellencamp and his beloved small-town America.
