UtneCast: A Conversation with Del McCoury

<p>
<i>

Moneyland</i>, the new album by bluegrass legend <a title=”Del McCoury” href=”http://www.mccourymusic.com/index.cfm” target=”_blank”>Del McCoury</a>, is a scathing indictment of the rampant corruption and greed in America today. The album features both classic bluegrass standards and newly recorded songs, with guest appearances by Merle Haggard, Tim O’Brien, Emmylou Harris, Patty Loveless, Bruce Hornsby, and Gillian Welch.</p>
<p>Having grown up on a farm in Pennsylvania, McCoury has witnessed the decline of traditional rural life in America, but as the consummate gentleman, he isn’t trying to influence people’s politics. He’s just calling attention to the fact that “many working folks all across America are in a tough spot.” For the latest episode of the UtneCast I spoke with McCoury about <i>Moneyland</i>, politics, and rural life.</p>
