“Fortunate Son” Added to Library of Congress
In another tip of the hat to John’s songwriting ability, the Library of Congress has just added “Fortunate Son” to its collection. It’s a big honor coming from the oldest federal institution in the United States. His song will be added to the de facto national library of the United States along with ones from other artists such as the Everly Brothers, Jeff Buckley, U2, Bing Crosby, and John’s friend Buck Owens.
