McLain Kicks Off A Dozen Us Tour Dates With Nick Lowe On June 8
Louisiana music hero Tommy McLain has shared "The Greatest Show On Hurt" today, a poignant and unflinching original that finds the swamp pop architect reflecting on some of life's more difficult moments, preceding his triumphant return to recorded music at age 82. Co-written with Nick Lowe, who cites McLain as a formative musical hero, "The Greatest Show On Hurt" features Louisiana luminaries like Ivan Neville, The Mamou Playboys' Steve Riley, C.C. Adcock (who also serves as the album's producer) and the late Warren Storm in his final recording session before passing in 2021. It's the second offering from McLain's I Ran Down Every Dream (August 26 / Yep Roc Records) following the release of the album's title track, a co-write and duet with Elvis Costello (another longtime McLain fan).
