Every year since 2005, Relix has partnered with Del McCoury to present our A Cold Turkey Thanksgiving audio special. Over the years, we’ve offered live cuts, studio favorites and even some unreleased material. And, in recent years, we’ve expanded our scope to present a range of music from Del’s sons and their hard-touring outfit, The Travelin’ McCourys. The full special can be streamed here.
We recently spoke with Del and his son Ronnie about the Del McCoury Band’s latest album, Almost Proud.
The full special can be streamed here.
Here’s a look at this year’s tracklist and some notes from his team on each song
Del McCoury Band and California Honeydrops – “The Other Shore”: Lech wrote this and DMB put it on their recent album. Del invited them up to play it with them at DelFest.
