He played his “Healing Appalachia” Virtual Benefit Concert(festival coming in the fall), made a surprise appearance near his hometown at the Fallsburg Summer Stage after filling in for Town Mountain, and also played at DelFest this year in addition to the Telluride Bluegrass Festival.
He’s obviously been spending his time off the road writing some new material, and has played some unreleased songs here and there at recent concerts.
With that being said, he may have played another brand new song while at DelFest last month, alongside the host band, the Travelin’ McCourys.
The song is titled “Triune God,” and appears to be a good ol’ fashioned bluegrass pickin’ Gospel song, about seeing the light of God, and hopping off worldly things like pills, laws of the man, and more.
Backed up by the harmonies and instrumentation of the Travelin’ McCourys, this one will have you wishin’ you were testifying on the front pew of a little white church out in the woods.

Tyler Childers Sings Hank Williams’ “The Old Country Church”
Look at ol’ Tyler Childers going back to his roots.
With bluegrass spins on some of his big hits, some unreleased new ones, and of course a couple covers, Tyler and the Travelin’ McCourys spun it all the way back to 1952 (and were joined by Del himself for this one) by covering one of Hank Williams’ greats, “The Old Country Church.”
Considering that the 30-year-old hails from the Bluegrass State, and a number of his songs have a lot of bluegrass influence, songs like this are simply second nature for the independent country music star (who just went Double Platinum with “Feathered Indians”).
This appearance comes on the heels of his surprise fill in at the second annual Fallsburg Summer Stage, which is a tiny music festival hosted in Louisa, Kentucky.
