Acoustic cover of CCR's Proud Mary by: SEAN & GERRY
"Proud Mary" is a song written by American singer and guitarist John Fogerty. It was first recorded by rock band Creedence Clearwater Revival (in which Fogerty played lead guitar and sang lead vocals) on the 1969 album Bayou Country. Released as a single in January 1969, it became the band's first top-ten hit on the U.S. Pop chart, peaking at number two, or number one according to some charts.
Tina Turner first covered Proud Mary in 1971 with her husband at the time, Ike Turner. The Ike & Tina Turner version was released as a single from their Workin' Together album and the song differed greatly from the structure of the original, but is also well known and has become one of Tina's most recognizable signature songs.
