The StringThe Travelin' McCourys plus the Opry in NYCJun 8, 2018The Travelin' McCourys began as a side project - an outlet for Del McCourys sons and their bandmates to pursue experiments and collaborations. Over the past eight years, they've developed a repertoire and an identity all their own, and with the addition of full time guitarist Cody Kilby, a personnel they at last called official. So now they've released their debut self-titled album and launched a limitless future, for now very much in parallel to the iconic Del McCoury Band, arguably the most influential bluegrass outfit of the past 20 years. In this special edition of The String, taped before a live audience at Nashville's City Winery, Craig talks with Ronnie McCoury (mandolin), Rob McCoury (banjo) and Jason Carter (fiddle) about the past and future of their wide-open view of bluegrass. Also, guest producers Matt Follett and Brady Watson report on the Grand Ole Opry's most recent venture to New York City.
