Running Wild – new single from Del McCoury

New music from Del McCoury always makes it a red letter day for bluegrass lovers, and today is no exception.

A brand new single from an upcoming album by The Del McCoury Band is now available, one Del wrote called Running Wild. It features McCoury’s distinctive lead singing as well as his stratospheric tenor on a fast paced, hard driving bluegrass number.

The story goes that Del started writing this one some years ago, recorded an unfinished demo, and completely forgot about it until his son, Ronnie, dug up the tape and pressed his dad to complete the lyrics. Now they have a certain hit song and a great introduction to the next album, Almost Proud, set for a February release by McCoury Music.

Supported by some of the best in the business, Del sings this one with Ronnie on mandolin, Rob McCoury on banjo, Jason Carter on fiddle, and Alan Bartram on bass.

Buckle in for this one.

Running Wild from The Del McCoury Band is available now as a single from popular download and streaming sites. Pre-orders and pre-saves for Almost Proud are also enabled online, ahead of its February 18 release.

Del and the boys are touring now through the end of the year. You can find all the show dates on the band web site.
