Walter Trout about what inspired him to write the track;
“In January, I was walking around at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis and ran into my friend (blues singer), Teeny Tucker. I asked her how she’s doing and she told me of recently losing her son, Boston. She said ‘my heart is crying but my eyes are dry. I guess I’ve just run out of tears to cry.’ I felt so bad for her and asked her if she’d like to write a song with me to honor her son’s memory using those words – and my wife and I worked with her to turn it into a song about the loss and grief one feels when losing a loved one.”
‘All Out Of Tears’ is the second track released of the new record Ordinary Madness.
