DEL McCOURY BAND

Description

The 2014 Grammy Award Winning Del McCoury Band is the most awarded bluegrass band of all time and in Sept 2011 (days from Bill Monroe’s 100th birthday) he was inducted into the Bluegrass Hall of Fame at the “The Mother of Country Music” The Ryman Auditorium. The band has won a total of thirty-one International Bluegrass Music Association Awards, including Entertainer Of The Year nine times. In 2006, The Del McCoury Band won the Grammy award for Best Bluegrass Album Of The Year for the CD titled "The Company We Keep". The Del McCoury Band continues to cross genres and in 2011 released a crossover CD with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band titled "American Legacies". In 2012, The Del McCoury Band will release "Old Memories, The Songs of Bill Monroe"; featuring some of his favorites songs performed during his tenure with Bill Monroe and Bluegrass Boys.

Vince Gill says it simply, and maybe best: "I'd rather hear Del McCoury sing 'Are You Teasing Me' than just about anything."

McCoury is something special, a living link to the days when bluegrass was made only in hillbilly honkytonks, schoolhouse shows and on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, yet also a commandingly vital presence today, from prime time and late night talk show TV to music festivals where audiences number in the hundreds of thousands.

But tough the Del McCoury Band was propelled to the top of the bluegrass world, they also gave birth to a more startling phenomenon: the emergence of the group onto the larger musical scene as a unique torchbearer for the entire sweep of bluegrass and its history. For it turned out that the unmistakable authenticity of McCoury's music-along with his good-natured willingness to keep alert for new sounds and new opportunities-had bred fans in some unlikely places. That bluegrass-bred stars like Gill and Alison Krauss (who first met Del at a bluegrass festival when she filled in for a missing fiddler of his) would sing his praises wasn't surprising, but who would have expected country-rock icons like Steve Earle or jam bands like the supremely popular Phish to have joined in the chorus?
