I went to a friend’s wedding years ago and the buzz was that Delbert McClinton was at the wedding and was going to sing. Now this was before you could just google someone on your phone and find out who they were and I had no clue who Delbert McClinton was!

He sang and he was great but I didn’t really pay too much attention.  So, years later when my music collection and research of every genre became extensive, I ran back into Delbert McClinton’s music and found I loved it and now I have pretty much everything he’s recorded and this song, Better Off With the Blues, really gets me!  He has a version of Shaky Ground that’s fierce, too!

So, happy birthday, dude!

more tomorrow!
