Born in Bakersville, North Carolina on February 1, 1939 Delano Floyd McCoury was introduced to bluegrass through the music of Flatt and Scruggs by his older brother G.C. At an early age, the McCoury family moved up north above the Mason-Dixon Line in York County, Pennsylvania. Del decided to return to York County, Pennsylvania after he had a unsatisfactory stint with the Golden State Boys. Back home, he worked as a construction worker at a local nuclear power plant, and later was hired by the logging industry. Del had spend the next two decades as a part of the bluegrass scene in the Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia area as Bluegrass gigs were happening bountiful in the east. Fiddler and Blue Grass Boy alumnus Billy Baker made the trip to California with Del, and developed the Shady Valley Boys once they reached back home.

Soon, Del formulated his own band, The Del McCoury Band. After an extremely superb relationship with Rounder Records, the Del McCoury Band signed with Ricky Skaggs' Ceili Records.
