True Bluegrass: Del McCoury Band Debuts Carlene Carter’s ‘I Fell in Love’ [VIDEO EXCLUSIVE]


By Greg Cahill

The Del McCoury Band today released the digital track “I Fell in Love,” originally co-written and recorded by Carlene Carter (daughter of June Carter Cash and Carl Smith) in 1990.


The new version offers a more stripped-down interpretation of the hit song, complete with ferocious banjo picking and Del’s classic belting vocals.

The Del McCoury Band’s “I Fell In Love’ is true bluegrass.

Their latest album is Del & Woody, a collection of previously unrecorded Woody Guthrie songs.
