Del McCoury Band announced Almost Proud in October. The album features a mix of music Del McCoury listened to while sidelined by the pandemic along with a few new tunes like lead single “Running Wild,” which, although begun 15 years ago, just received a fresh revisiting and recording. McCoury now follows with “Once Again,” a song he collaborated on with singer-songwriter Josh Shilling, who also adds some bluesy, honky-tonk piano.
McCoury spoke about his collaboration with Shilling in Relix, who premiered “Once Again”:
“Josh Shilling knows how much I love Jerry Lee Lewis songs, and that I really enjoy when I can add a piano to what we do,” Del said. “So when he wrote this song with Bill Whyte, he said he had me in mind. And well, it’s just a really good song and I’m glad he did. Also glad he is playing piano on it.”
