David Nelson Band Shares New Song Featuring Robert Hunter’s Lyrics
The David Nelson Band issued a new single entitled “Movin’ Right Along” featuring lyrics penned by the late Robert Hunter before his death. Nelson wrote the music to accompany Hunter’s words.
“Movin’ Right Along” was part of a batch of lyrics Robert sent to David about five years ago. Nelson and Hunter’s friendship and working relationship dates back to the early-1960s when the pair played as part of Bay Area bluegrass outfits the Wildwood Boys and Hart Valley Drifters. David had previously released some of the songs featuring the lyrics Robert wrote as part of the DNB’s Once In A Blue Moon album in 2014.
“The DNB finished another song, ‘Movin’ Right Along,’ but for whatever reason—perhaps because it seemed so very intense—it sat and waited,” noted the band in a statement. “And on September 23rd, Robert himself moved along to wherever we’re all going, and it seemed appropriate to share it with you.” Listen to “Movin’ Right Along” below:
