  • Description

    Seven years after its last LP, the Del McCoury Band returns to take on the challenge with Songs of Love and Life - A glorious 13-song collection, the album follows 2021's celebrated release, Almost Proud, and once again features Del touching down on a diverse set of tracks--vintage and contemporary--as he and his crackerjack Band nod to icons Kenny Rogers, Roy Orbison, and Elvis Presley, as well as welcome next-generation talent, Molly Tuttle, to the party. Produced by Del and his son, Ronnie, Songs of Love and Life showcases one of the greatest storytellers in music, delivering another rousing assembly of absorbing, compelling, and unforgettable tales.

    Still, even among the pantheon of music's finest artists, Del McCoury stands uniquely apart. From the nascent sound of bluegrass that charmed hardscrabble hillbilly honkytonks, rural schoolhouse stages, and the crowning glory of the Grand Ole Opry to the present-day culture-buzz of viral reels and digital streams, from Bill Monroe to Billy Strings, it is Del who's the living link. And, like any genuine national treasure, the gifts keep coming.
    With beauty and precision, Del and the boys bring home another endearing album of traditional bluegrass music. Brimming with hot licks, classic songcraft, and Del's matchless vocal delivery, the Del McCoury Band and its latest, Songs of Love and Life, once again raise the gold-bar standard of bluegrass yet another notch. This is a baker's dozen from a bushel; the best songs Del's selected from the bounty to meet his latest challenge. "I get a big feeling of accomplishment when I get a new record out," says the 85-year-old legend. "I never get tired of it."
