Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician Billy Strings joined forces with bluegrass legend Del McCoury for a new version of Bill Monroe favorite, “Midnight on the Stormy Deep,” out today. Watch a special performance video HERE.
The collaboration adds to a landmark year for Strings, who was recently named Breakthrough Artist of the Pandemic at the 2021 Pollstar Awards after continuing to perform consistently throughout the past year, both in-person and virtually. Reflecting on his recent shows, Pollstar declares, “The hottest hand in jamgrass mastered pandemic touring…in a fraught year, Strings and those around him parlayed that fervor into the rare pandemic success story, blazing trails in livestreaming, drive-in touring and socially distanced podded shows while remaining true to their core values of authenticity and fan engagement.” Additionally, Relix featured Strings on the cover of their April/May issue praising, “Strings’ exuberance speaks to the boundless, resourceful spirit of his music…beyond his technical mastery, it’s his authenticity that continues to animate his music and, in turn, the fans who are drawn to that music.” Furthering his recent success, Strings’ new song, “Wargasm” featuring special guest RMR, debuted earlier this month.
