Del McCoury - Moneyland

The goal of Moneyland is to raise awareness of serious economic issues facing Americans today through a thoughtful selection of six new (or newly recorded) songs, mixed with eight neglected gems and classic favorites that offer a hard-hitting look at today's economic injustice.

In addition to songs from the Del McCoury Band, the album features songs from Marty Stuart, Merle Haggard, Emmylou Harris, Bruce Hornsby along with The Fairfield Four, Chris Knight and others.

Fortunately, the concept behind Moneyland isn't a novel one; there are many great organizations that have been fighting these battles for a long time.

Del's goal with Moneyland is to draw that connection between the sentiments of each song and the organizations that are dedicated to the issues dealt with in the songs.

It is the intention of each of these organizations to gather inspired individuals together for a greater good. We believe that music--especially this music--is a great way to start the process; we hope it will inspire listeners to move from awareness to action.

Please visit this special Moneyland Page to hear the music and find out more information about the organizations that we're speaking about. Each song offers something special; for example, listen to "Farmer's Blues" performed by Marty Stuart and Merle Haggard and find out more about organizations who are on the front lines of the battle to save the American Farmer. Or listen to "Carry Me Across the Mountain" performed by Dan Tyminski with Alison Krauss and learn about how the National Rural Health Association is addressing the health care and medical issues of rural America.

In addition to all of this, IFC (Independent Film Co.) have teamed up with Moneyland for a contest that inspires filmmakers to react and respond to the issues addressed on the album. Click the video below for more information about the IFC contest and visit for more information about the project.
