McLain’s first album release since 1979 also enshrines many friends gone too soon, like his fellow “swamp pop” luminary Warren Storm (whose drums can be heard throughout I Ran Down Every Dream), Louisiana songwriting legend Bobby Charles (who Tommy honors with a stunning cover of his song “I Hope“), and the late Austin guitar legend Denny Freeman.
As is only fitting for McLain, he will celebrate I Ran Down Every Dream with a series of Louisiana release events in September, including shows with Adcock in New Orleans (September 7 and 8 at Hotel Peter and Paul), Lafayette (September 9 at Vermilionville) and Crowley (September 10 at the Grand Opera House). He’ll also bring the new record to Nashville next month for a performance and featured panel about I Ran Down Every Dream at AmericanaFest 2022. Earlier this year, McLain embarked on his first cross-country tour in decades with Nick Lowe – and returned to JazzFest with a series of headline-making shows alongside Elvis Costello and Lucinda Williams. He’ll continue to bring the new album around the world throughout 2022 and beyond, with more dates to-be-announced soon.
