Bluegrass legend Del McCoury will release a new Del McCoury Band album entitled Del McCoury Still Sings Bluegrass on May 25. The album features the lead single “To Make Love Sweeter For You,” which Rolling Stone premiered.

The title of the upcoming LP is in reference to McCoury’s 1968 album Del McCoury Sings Bluegrass. The bluegrass patriarch is backed on the new 14-track record by his sons Ronnie McCoury on mandolin and Rob McCoury on banjo, along with fellow band mates Jason Carter on fiddle and Alan Bartram on bass. Del’s grandson, electric guitarist Heaven McCoury contributed to a cover of Shawn Camp’s “Hot Wired.”

“What I like in a record is variety of moods, of tempos,” Del stated. “I consider myself traditional at heart, but I don’t have any boundaries. I’m just a guy that likes to sing and play music. Whatever strikes me to do I’ll do it. Without wrecking things.”

Del McCoury will host the 11th annual DelFest in Cumberland, Maryland which begins on May 24, one day before the release of Del McCoury Still Sings Bluegrass. Written by Glenn Sutton and Jerry Kennedy, and Jerry Lee Lewis’ first No. 1 country hit, listen to the album’s lead single “To Make Love Sweeter For You” below:
