Is Tennessee in the Delta? Because Tina Turner was born and raised in Nutbush, Tennessee. John Fogerty is from California.
As the lead singer/songwriter of Creedence Clearwater Revival, John Fogerty sang in a mock-Southern accent. That, combined with his blues-shouting style, made many of his lyrics nearly unintelligible -- and a rich source of mondegreens (e.g. "there's a bathroom on the right").

When Tina Turner sang "Proud Mary," she pronounced "turnin'" and "burnin'" the way most Americans do.

I guess having grown up hearing Southern accents my ears don't hear it the same way.
