|Five Hundred Sixth in the Famous People (FP) Series - Delbert McClinton
Relocating to Los Angeles in the early 1970s, McClinton emerged in a partnership with fellow Texan Glen Clark, performing a combination of country and soul music. They achieved a degree of artistic success, releasing two albums before splitting, with McClinton embarking on a solo career.
Emmylou Harris had a number 1 hit in 1978 with his composition "Two More Bottles of Wine," and McClinton's "B Movie Boxcar Blues" was covered on the first album by The Blues Brothers, Briefcase Full of Blues.
His 1980 album, The Jealous Kind, contained his only Top 40 hit single "Givin' It Up for Your Love", which peaked at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100. He won a 1991 Grammy for his duet with Bonnie Raitt, "Good Man, Good Woman", and reached the Top 5 of the country charts with the Tanya Tucker duet, "Tell Me About It." He recorded the opening title song "Weatherman" for the Bill Murray film Groundhog Day.
If the Delbert buried near this peanut butter jar cache in the Murphree Cemetery had recorded the same songs as this Delbert, we might have seen titles such as "Two More Cachers Whine", "STF CacheLog Blues", "Givin' It Up for Your SWAG" and "Good Woman, Grab That Cache".
