Tomcattin' is the fourth studio album of Southern rock band Blackfoot, released in 1980. The album features Shorty Medlocke on "Fox Chase", grandfather of Rickey Medlocke. While the album did not spawn any hit singles, it was enough to keep the band's devoted fan base loyal and strong, it remains a popular staple in Blackfoot's catalogue.[3]
