The Promised Land

***
It’s hard to believe that in a career stretching back nearly 50 years and ranging across genre and generation barriers, Del McCoury has never indulged in that time-honored bluegrass tradition, the gospel album. He remedies that in high style with The Promised Land, which brings Del’s keening tenor and his band’s laser-guided musicianship and harmonies to bear on a thoughtfully selected set of spirituals. Highlights include a couple of relative obscurities from the pen of celebrated gospel songwriter Albert E. Brumley, “Led by the Master’s Hand” and “It’s Surprising What the Lord Can Do.”
