First State Friday: three choices

1. Even after 50 years in the music business, 2018 has been a milestone year for singer-songwriter Delbert McClinton.

His biography, “Delbert McClinton: One of the Fortunate Few,” written by Diana Finlay Hendricks, was released by Texas A&M University Press.

He’s been nominated for Texas State Musician, a highly-acclaimed state appointment akin to poet laureate.

McClinton will receive the international Nobelity Project’s 2019 Feed the Peace Award, and will be honored with a star in the Paramount Theatre’s Walk of Stars on Congress Avenue in Austin.

The singer-songwriter is slated to release his 20th studio album in 2019, celebrating his 62nd year on stage.

McClinton – responsible for hits like “Giving It Up for Your Love” and “Shotgun Rider” – will headline The Grand, 818 N. Market St., Wilmington at 8 p.m., Friday.

COST $34 to $38. INFO thegrandwilmington.org or 800-37-GRAND.

3. The band Earth Radio broadcasts original music from the stage, possessing listeners with a carefree spirit.
