Del McCoury Bands “Del & Woody” Hits Number 1 for Second Week

Del & WoodyNashville, TN -- For the 2nd week The Del McCoury Band’s Del & Woody, a collection of lyrics left behind by Woody Guthrie and put to music by McCoury, reached #1 on the Billboard Bluegrass chart. As best we can tell (with help from the Woody Guthrie Center), a few songs of Woody’s have charted on radio before, but no project that included only his songs has ever risen to the top of the Billboard album chart. McCoury—who at 77 is no stranger to the top of the charts himself—says he is proud that it was his unique collaboration with the world-acclaimed folk bard of the depression that pulled Woody to the top.

The project, a brainchild of Nora Guthrie, Woody's daugher, came to completion earlier this year. Del has worked on varied and diverse projects and this would a good fit as the music has similar roots.
