Old Crow Medicine Show finds the "Remedy"

Tuesday, April 29, 2014 – Old Crow Medicine Show announced Tuesday its upcoming new album "Remedy," due out July 1 via ATO Records.

Ten years after the success of folk anthem "Wagon Wheel," which started as a track on a Bob Dylan work tape later finished by fiddler/band leader Ketch Secor, "Remedy" features a new Dylan/Old Crow penned collaboration on the new track "Sweet Amarillo."

"Remedy" also features the return of producer Ted Hutt (Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys, Gaslight Anthem), who produced 2012's "Carry Me Back."

"This is country music for people who think country music needs a whoopin' said Secor, who adds, "Country music that knows how deep its roots run--- from the dirtiest blues to the folkiest folk, the songwriters, the crooners and the Outlaws, to the Opry stage; it's all here".

Kicking off with "Brushy Mountain Conjugal Trailer," a new take on the classic prison tale, the band then launches into the hyper speed "8 Dogs 8 Banjos." Ballads include "Dearly Departed Friend" and Critter Fuqua's "Firewater."

In support of their upcoming release, the band has announced their biggest headlining tour ever with stops including Red Rocks, The Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre (Atlanta), The Philadelphia Folk Festival and London's The Roundhouse.

CD reviews for Old Crow Medicine Show

Volunteer CD review - Volunteer
Dave Cobb produced "Volunteer" for Old Crow Medicine Show, and while word on the street was that this promised to be a more rocking, less roots music effort, such talk shouldn't dissuade fans of the group's established sound from checking it out. Sure, there may be a little more electric guitar than on past efforts, but this is still very much OCMS music. While rock and roll is not the best term for these songs, perhaps rambunctious best describes some of them. »»»
50 Years of Blonde on Blonde CD review - 50 Years of Blonde on Blonde
Whenever an artist attempts to cover a classic work in whole, it can't help but seem like a somewhat audacious effort from the outset. After all, tackling an album that's stood the test of time, one that's already an integral part of the musical lexicon in its original form, is a formidable task. At best, the original artist's imprint is difficult to supersede, but at worst it can become a regrettable error that yields disastrous results. Consequently, credit Old Crow »»»
Remedy CD review - Remedy
Old Crow Medicine Show returned with "Carry Me Back" in 2012 after a brief hiatus and lineup changes. The album was a predictable collection from the group, hearkening back to their earlier releases and stepping away from the dark undertones of the highlight "Tennessee Pusher" album. It was a welcome recording for long time fans of the group, but blended in with much of their discography. "Remedy" is easily recognizable as an OCMS recording, but this time around, »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Carlile goes from excellent to memorable musical event – The last time Brandi Carlile came through town, she was promoting 2018's "By the Way, I Forgive You," which would deservedly go on to win the 2019 Grammy Award for Best Americana Album. This time out, Carlile performed fewer songs from that strong effort, which amounted to a more well-rounded live overview of her career to date.... »»»
Concert Review: Tuttle does well by coming home – Molly Tuttle has won kudos for her acoustic guitar playing. So much so that she's captured the IBMA award for Guitarist of the Year, the first female to win that acclaim from the bluegrass organization. But it's not so much Tuttle's guitar playing that stood out live. Yes, that serves her well for sure. But it's more that her... »»»
