Roots music titan Delbert McClinton reunites with fellow Texas troubadour Glen Clark for their first new album in 40 years.

Three-time Grammy winner Delbert McClinton’s 28th album, Blind, Crippled and Crazy, set for release on Jone 18 on New West Records, blends R&B, country, blues and rock ‘n’ roll with humor, heart and roadhouse virtuosity. The disc also reunited McClinton with his longtime friend and musical running partner Glen Clark, making these 12 songs the first time the seminal roots music duo Delbert and Glen have recorded since 1973.

McClinton became an international star in the realms of blues and traditional country music, cross-pollinating the genres into his own unique sound. Since 1980, when his sixth solo album The Jealous Kind sparked the top 10 hit “Givin’ It Up for Your Love,” he has remained one of the most respected figures in American roots music. In addition to winning three Grammy Awards, McClinton’s songs have been recorded by a who’s who of country music royaly including Vince Gill, Wynonna Judd, Garth Brooks, Emmylou Harris, Martina McBride and Trisha Yearwood.

“The bottom line is, at this point I don’t believe in doing anything that’s not fun,” McClinton says, “and recording Blind, Crippled and Crazy was a blast. Me and Gary, who I’ve known for 40 years starting back in Texas, handpicked every musician on the record and made sure every song was perfect. The title, from the old soul tune, is something I’ve wanted to use for years. And singing with Glen again --- between the way our voices mix and his sense of humor --- makes me excited about us taking this music out on the road together.
