One of the most popular performers in blues history, guitarist Robert Cray has a new album coming out next week. Produced by Kevin Shirley (Joe Bonamassa, Aerosmith), Nothin But Love is Cray’s 16th studio album, a ten-track masterpiece that may well be his best work since the 1980s. Recorded with long-time band members Jim Pugh (keyboards), Richard Cousins (bass) and Tony Braunagel (drums), Cray delves deep into his usual blend of blues, rock, and soul music with a few jazzy flourishes thrown in for good measure.

Of course, Cray will be on the road in support of Nothin But Love, and we have the first batch of tour dates listed below. Cray is a phenomenal performer, a dynamic bluesman and a hell of a guitar player, his band a top-notch group of talented professionals that know how to back up a bona-fide legend. Believe me, you’ll want to witness Cray in person when he blows through your town!
