Delbert McClinton Finishes Album

Following up the Grammy-winning Nothing Personal, Delbert McClinton anticipates a Sept. 24 release with the all-new Room to Breathe. One of the album’s songs, “Lone Star Blues,” features guest vocals from The Flatlanders, Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell, among others. McClinton wrote or co-wrote all 12 songs on the album and co-produced with Gary Nicholson. “I like this new one a lot,” McClinton says. “I think we did a good job of following Nothing Personal. This one picks you up at the end of that last one and takes you through the stuff going through my head since then. And there are some new twists that I’m very anxious for people to hear.” 07/15/02
