10 Best Country and Americana Songs of the Week: Ashley McBryde, Del McCoury

Del McCoury, "To Make Love Sweeter for You"

Josh Shilling is featured on piano on Del McCoury's first single off his new album.

"To Make Love Sweeter for You" is the first tempting taste of the durable Del McCoury Band's upcoming LP, Del McCoury Still Sings Bluegrass (out May 25th, the same weekend as the bluegrass legend's 11th annual all-star DelFest event). A classic honky-tonk ballad penned by Glenn Sutton (Tammy Wynette's "Your Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad") and songwriter-producer Jerry Kennedy, the song was the first chart-topping country hit for Jerry Lee Lewis after signing with Nashville's Mercury Records' subsidiary, Smash. McCoury's high lonesome vocal is accompanied by rolling piano and weepy fiddle, turning the romantic tune into one that could easily pivot toward unrelenting regret. S.B.
