Donna Ulisse, Del McCoury and Jerry SalleySongwriters Donna Ulisse & Jerry Salley recently had the opportunity to thank bluegrass legend Del McCoury in person for recording their song “Butler Brothers” on the new Del McCoury Band album The Streets of Baltimore. The song is a tragic and chilling story of two brothers fighting on different sides in the Civil War.

The songwriting team caught up with Del last week at the International Bluegrass Music Awards in Raleigh, North Carolina where Ulisse was nominated for Songwriter of the Year and Salley had one of his tunes nominated for Song of the year. The Del McCoury Band was nominated for Entertainer of the year.
