Return Engagement Promotes Rural Message of Moneyland Album

(Nashville, Tennessee�) � June 25, 2008 � The Del McCoury Band heads East this week for a return engagement on the popular “A Prairie Home Companion” radio program to promote the band’s hard-hitting Moneyland cd. Heard by more than four million listeners each week on some 580 public radio stations and abroad on America One and the Armed Forces Networks, the appearance will be broadcast live from Tanglewood � the Koussevitzky Music Shed in Lenox, Massachusetts at 5:45 p.m. Eastern on Saturday, June 28, 2008.

Del will bring more than new music to the stage of “A Prairie Home Companion,” he will bring a new attitude destined to shake up the right, left and center. Del doesn’t claim to have the answers to America’s problems, just hopes that “somebody a lot smarter than us will hear a song that moves them and decide to take action.” The producers of the project add in the liner notes, “not only do we believe it Un-American for Washington to be blind to the problems of small towns and rural areas, we believe it to be immoral.”

Noted music journalist Craig Havighurst blogged: “I think when this album hits for real, it’s going to shock lefties and righties alike with its candor and its understated moral outrage. The Austin Chronicle adds: “�the album is equal parts empathetic consolation and political outrage at a government that has left the common folks behind.”

Moneyland hits stores July 8, 2008 and features songs by Merle Haggard, Emmylou Harris, Bruce Hornsby, Chris Knight, Patty Loveless, Marty Stuart, Dan Tyminski and Mac Wiseman and includes special guest appearances by Rodney Crowell, The Fairfield Four, Tim O’Brien, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings.
