Bitin' at the Bit

Clay McClinton’s musical roots are firmly planted in the traditions of his Texas birthplace, where strains of country, blues, rock ’n’ roll and Tex-Mex blend effortlessly into a sound he likes to call “Texas gumbo.” After spending 10 years diligently honing his own version of that sound, McClinton showcases his range as an artist and writer on his fourth and most ambitious album, Bitin’ at the Bit (Red Chili Records; Feb. 18, 2013).

Livin' Out Loud

Clay demonstrates his musical virtuosity with the release of his third album, Livin’ Out Loud (2010).  He blends Americana and Texas blues with a touch of country to give us a tremendous follow up to his two previous releases—Out of the Blue (2004) and Son of a Gun (2006).  Livin’ Out Loud is openhearted and thoughtful, and often explores the tension between the love for adventure and the longing for home.

Son of a Gun

Clay McClinton’s music has an eclectic sound born in Texas where honky tonk, Delta blues and soulful rock meld seamlessly. Clay’s music introduces “alternative country” to “contemporary blues,” and the two genres become fast friends.  His second CD, Son of a Gun, boasts plenty of gutsy, gritty lyrics laid on a strong musical bed. While he has clearly inherited the talents of his Grammy award-winning father, Delbert McClinton, Clay has carved his own niche in the world of music with his original style and sound that appeals to audiences across the country.

Out Of The Blue


Clay's debut CD, Out of the Blue, is a collection of self-penned songs that epitomize his personal blend of influences against a backdrop of stripped-down production where less is definitely more. Clay not only wrote or co-wrote the material, he also co-produced the CD not long after his career move to Nashville.
