Grammy award-winning American Roots band Old Crow Medicine Show will perform at Outlaw Music Festival at Riverbend Music Center on June 22 in support of their new album Volunteer (April 20, Columbia Records Nashville). The album, which was recorded at the historic RCA Studio A and produced by Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson), has already received praise from critics including NPR Music, American Songwriter, Paste Magazine and No Depression, who says, “As life changes, the band evolves, and Secor and his bandmates do what the best purveyors of mountain music have always done: turn tough times into kickass songs.” See more press highlights here.
“Old Crow Medicine Show has produced some of the most original American music of the past two decades. Now comes ‘Volunteer,’ a new collection that combines the band’s familiar buskers-on-steroids vibe with some of the best songwriting its members have ever done.” – Associated Press
Currently celebrating their 20th anniversary, Old Crow Medicine Show remains one of the most vibrant and forward-thinking traditional bands of their time. Watch their performances on Conan and CBS This Morning to get an idea of the band’s impressive live show. Since the release of their Grammy-winning studio effort Remedy, Old Crow Medicine Show has been touring extensively around their latest album, the highly acclaimed 50 Years Of Blonde On Blonde, a rootsy tribute to the Bob Dylan classic. The band also recently collaborated with 2018 Grammy nominee Kesha for CMT’s Crossroads, taking their versatility to another level and further highlighting their ability to seamlessly interpret other styles of music. You can watch the performance of their classic song “Wagon Wheel” featuring Kesha via Rolling Stone here.
“The string band’s eighth full-length…is a series of character sketches that splits the difference between the boisterous and the gently longing.” – Rolling Stone Country
The songs on Volunteer illustrate themes that resonate far beyond Old Crow Medicine Show’s diverse fan base, while showcasing the depth of the group’s songwriting. The band’s recent accomplishments demonstrate that they still have the hunger to evolve and thrive in a variety of musical settings. While trends in music have come and gone, Old Crow Medicine Show has maintained their sense of integrity, continuing to share their infectious hybrid of traditional mountain music across the country.
