Delbert McClinton: One of the Fortunate Few
MetadataShow full metadata
Delbert McClinton, award-winning singer, songwriter, musician, and bandleader, is, as described in his song, "One of the Fortunate Few." Born in Lubbock and raised in Fort Worth, the Texas artist has risen to international acclaim, playing professionally for most of the past six decades. He has had a backstage pass to the evolution of Texas and American music, and most importantly, has played a significant role in helping shape that music. However, a major part of McClinton's legacy, which often goes unrecognized, is the fact that he has always ignored racial and ethnic cultural boundaries and blended together a wide range of musical styles into his own distinct sound.
