Delbert McClinton

“It’s not a stretch to say that McClinton, at 78, is making the best music of his career” – Rolling Stone Country

Roots music visionary Delbert McClinton returns with a swaggering and swingin’ new album, Tall, Dark, & Handsome, via Hot Shot Records/Thirty Tigers. Featuring 14 new, original new songs – all written or co-written by Delbert – the album dives deep into the blues, Americana and beyond, bursting with horns, fiddle, accordion, blazing guitar work, back-up singers and McClinton’s charismatic rasp, proving Lyle Lovett’s claim that “if we could all sing like we want to, we’d all sound like Delbert McClinton.”

McClinton has three GRAMMY Awards, and his previous three albums have all reached # 1 or #2 on Billboard’s Blues chart. With over 60 years of recording and touring to his credit, McClinton is a true musical zelig: he toured with the Beatles, backed Bo Diddley and Howlin’ Wolf, helped to inspire The Blues Brothers, and performed everywhere from SNL to Austin City Limits (both multiple times) along the way. His songs have been covered by Buddy Guy, Bonnie Raitt, Garth Brooks, Vince Gill, Waylon Jennings, and Wynonna Judd – to name a few. 
This “Godfather of Americana” will keep on rolling in 2019, with a full slate of tour dates through year’s end.
