While “Easy Target” is a new song, it looks like Mellencamp has another project/album in the works which the track will not be associated with. Last year Mellencamp told USA Today, “Carlene Carter and I wrote a couple of songs together, she wrote some, and I wrote some.” Carlene Carter is in fact the stepdaughter of Johnny Cash. Their musical project is expected to be titled Sad Clowns and Hillbillies. That LP could be here by February. She’s also expected to open for Mellencamp on a tour to happen later this year.
