About Old Crow Medicine Show

Old Crow Medicine Show started busking on street corners in 1998 in New York state and up through Canada, winning audiences along the way with their boundless energy and spirit. They eventually found themselves in Boone, North Carolina, where they caught the attention of folk icon Doc Watson while playing in front of a pharmacy. He invited the band to play at his festival, MerleFest, which helped to launch their career. Shortly thereafter the band was hired to entertain crowds between shows at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee.

It's been more than 19 years since these humble beginnings. The band has gone on to receive the honor of being inducted as members of the Grand Ole Opry and have won two Grammy Awards: Best Folk Album for “Remedy” (2014) and Best Long Form Music Video for “Big Easy Express” (2013). Additionally, their classic single, "Wagon Wheel," received the RIAA's Platinum certification in 2013 for selling more than 1 million copies.

In 2011, Old Crow found themselves embarking on the historic Railroad Revival Tour with Mumford & Sons and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros. This tour had the bands riding a vintage train from California to New Orleans, playing shows along the way. The magic of this musical excursion across America's vast landscape is captured in the Emmet Malloy directed documentary "Big Easy Express."

Old Crow Medicine Show now have five studio albums to their name, three of which were released by Nettwerk Records: "O.C.M.S." (2004) and "Big Iron World" (2006) were produced by David Rawlings, and "Tennessee Pusher" (2008) was produced by Don Was. In 2012, ATO Records released the Ted Hutt produced "Carry Me Back," on which they continued to craft classic American roots music. The band's latest album, "Remedy," (2014) released by ATO Records and also produced by Ted Hutt, includes new Old Crow classics like "Sweet Amarillo," "8 Dogs 8 Banjos" and "Brushy Mountain Cojugal Trailer".
