Reception

In his Allmusic review, Bruce Eder stated: "You could listen to music for 50 years and not hear harmonies as sweet or playing as nimble as what's on A Tribute to the Delmore Brothers. The album was one top-flight brother harmony duo paying tribute to the first great brother harmony duo in recording history."

Music critic Bob Yates of No Depression wrote, "...the great songs of the Delmores sung by country music’s finest brother duet... rightly ranks as one of the music’s best tribute albums."
