The fifth annual Delbert McClinton & Friends Cruise embarks from Miami on January 8th with a celebrity guest lineup that includes the phenomenal Steve Earle, Joe Ely, Asleep At the Wheel, Marcia Ball, Stephen Bruton, Al Anderson, Wayne Toups, Jimmy Hall, Gary Nicholson and more. The ship will set sail from Port Of Miami on January 8, returning on January 15 with stops in Grand Cayman, Cozumel and Roatan, British Hondouras. "I'm very pleased with the way the cruise has evolved into a great music festival, and I'm very fortunate to have these great artists as friends," says McClinton, who serves as talent coordinator for the week-long cruise which this year skirts the western rim of the Caribbean Sea. "I'm especially excited that Steve Earle has come aboard this year. We're going to have some serious fun on board under the tropical breezes that the folks back home will never believe." The Delbert Cruise brings cruise-goers as many as 16 hours a day of live music with concert-length sets, a world-class sound system and legendary jam sessions and artist sit-ins, and autograph sessions.
