“We’ve cut several tracks for the new album already, and it’s shaping up to be the best work we’ve ever done. The guys are all excited about it, as am I. This next time in the studio in October, surrounded by friends of our music, will be the icing on the cake. There is so much good mojo surrounding this album, everything has just clicked in place from the first notes we played together. I can’t wait to share it with everyone.” – Antsy McClain

Here’s a rough mix of a new song we recorded in the studio last week that’s already becoming a fan favorite. It’s called “My Own Skin.”

Take a listen and see if we ain’t having a good time. We’d love for you to be a part of it!

  1. Dear Antsy … Please hold a spot for me in the Field Trip. I have to go to the bank and don’t want you to sell out in the meantime!

  2. Hey Antsy! Man I wish but the wife left me my only tooth fell out, you get the idea. Seriously that would be really cool! I need to get you to play Crescent City, CA then that would be a way cool world!

    1. Ha. Well, I hope we can do it again some day. Good luck with the false teeth fitting! Hate to see you down in the mouth. Ants

  3. Alas! Our son is getting married on November 1st and has the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner on Oct 31 (Halloween of all days!), so the Halloween field trip is out of the question for us.

    My wife and I saw you recently in St. Louis at the Sheldon Concert Hall with Tommy Emmanuel. That was our first time seeing you, or Tommy for that matter. The evening was simply wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed you! Honestly, folks were most likely there for Tommy, including me. I want to tell you that you were fantastic and engaged the audience in an organic, witty, and warm way that had us all in your pocket. I hope you can recall the genuine appreciation and applause you received while here. It was much deserved!

    I listened to My Own Skin and enjoyed it! Best wishes on the new project and God bless you as you travel life’s path on this blue marble!

    1. Thank you for the kind words, David. You make me want to try that much harder. And yes, I remember those nights in St. Louis very well, and the reception was very heart warming for me. I’ll never forget it. I’m trying to get back there. I’ll keep you posted. Ants

  4. Dearest Antsy. Patsy and I are just giddy about this trip. We are busy picking out special outfits, hats, and hair. I even got me a new pair of glasses so I can actually SEE the show! Patsy has cleared her calendar and has a fill-in dancer at the truck stop to take her place on those days..of course this fill-in gal ain’t as good as Patsy and those truckers will sure be happy when Patsy gets back (which I’m sure will increase her tips) Our spouses, Billybob and Skeeter and some other of our friends will also be attending the Chico show.. but we are making them sit in the cheap seats cuz..well… Patsy and Twyla are special VIPS and we can’t wait to rub that in their FACE! Can’t wait to see ya Antsy!!! Luv Twla and Patsy!

  5. I’ve been trying to find someone to attend this with and couldn’t, so I guess I’ll just have to get comfortable in ‘My Own Skin’ and come by myself! 🙂

  6. Dear Antsy,
    Where have you been these last 40 years of my life?! Please forgive me; but, I had never heard of you until last night when I surfed and ended up riding the “Rolled Coaster” on PBS 20-3 here in Indy!! You and “The Troubs” inspired me to sing and dance while watching.

    Where can I buy CDs that have those songs from the concert? Watching the performance of EVERYONE on stage plus hearing the music and lyrics was an ABSOLUTE THRILL! Thanks to ALL involved because your concert revived this sexagenarian broad whose spirit was in a comma!
    God bless ya’ll and keep you safe as you travel!!
