The venerable Delbert McClinton is a legend among Texas roots music afficionados, not only for his amazing longevity, but for his ability to combine country, blues, soul, and rock & roll as if there were no distinctions between any of them in the best time-honored Texas tradition.
If you ask the critics about Delbert's dynamic vocals and harmonica style, you'll hear descriptions ranging from 'honky-tonk,' 'blue-eyed soul,' and 'Texas stomp' to 'country rock' and 'blues.' Delbert's music rebels against traditional categorization, ask him what kind of music he plays and he'll say, "Fun music."
For McClinton fans, this will be a major cause to celebrate. For the uninitiated, this is as fine a place as any to be introduced to some gritty Texas rhythm & blues, hard honky tonk blues, slippery acoustic country, and killer funky white boy Southern soul.
At the end of the day, three-time Grammy winner Delbert McClinton is the quintessential Texas roadhouse rocker, applying his well-traveled rasp to songs from the hard-loving intersections of blues, country and soul.

"Breathtaking, hardcore roadhouse rhythm & blues." --Rolling Stone
