Today via Hot Shot Records/Thirty Tigers, Delbert McClinton releases Outdated Emotion, the 27th studio album from the 81-year-old legendary blues and soul rocker. The record marks a full-circle moment for the “Texas Treasure” (Houston Press) as he celebrates his coming-of-age musical heroes and performs the country, jazz, blues, and swing tunes that have shaped his career.

The “Godfather of Americana Music” is bringing the boogie to 2022 with his latest single “One Scotch, One Bourbon, One Beer.” Originally made famous by Amos Millburn (‘53) and John Lee Hooker (‘66), the iconic drinking anthem is soulfully reinvented today by 81-year-old living legend Delbert McClinton.

Multi-Grammy Award winner Delbert McClinton is “One of the Fortunate Few,” who has managed to live his dreams for more than six decades. The stars have aligned for Delbert. Those stars may have leaned toward the blues, but Delbert has managed to keep them on the bright side.

Three-time Grammy winner Delbert McClinton’s 28th album Blind, Crippled and Crazy, set for release on June 18 on New West Records, blends R&B, country, blues and rock ’n’ roll with humor, heart and roadhouse virtuosity.
