Del McCoury Band
Del McCoury marks his 50 year career mark with ‘Celebrating 50 Years of Del McCoury,’ a new box set of fresh recordings that look back at an amazing legacy. Vince Gill says it simply and maybe best in summarizing Del’s appeal…”I’d rather hear Del McCoury sing ‘Are You Teasing Me’ than just about anything.”
The Del McCoury Band is known for the ability to mix an appreciation for the rich traditions of bluegrass along with a keen awareness of the best in other musical styles, winning them the devotion of bluegrass fanatics and turning on new fans beyond their bluegrass following. Del McCoury has been a bluegrass star since joining Bill Monroe’s Blue Grass Boys in 1963. His sons Ronnie and Robbie joined the band in 1981 and 1987 respectively and in their own right are now known as two of the finest instrumentalists of their generation.
