Delbert McClinton: One Of The Fortunate Few,  (Texas A&M University Press, 2021) the new in-paper edition includes a new foreword, two new chapters, and several pivotal updates to this saga of Americana music.  More than the story of a rags-to-riches musician, Delbert McClinton: One of the Fortunate Few offers readers a soundtrack to some of the most pivotal moments in the history of American popular music—all backed by a cooking rhythm section and featuring a hot harmonica lead.

Much has happened with Delbert McClinton since the first edition of the biography was released in 2017. He received the Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award, and Rolling Stone called him “The Godfather of Americana Music.”  He received a Grammy® in 2020 for Best Traditional Blues Album for Tall, Dark, & Handsome (Hot Shot Records/Thirty Tigers).
