NEW SONY SIGNING OLD CROW REVISITS A DYLAN CLASSIC
2/21/17

When Bob Dylan came out of retirement to tour with The Band in the mid-1970s, they opened shows with “Most Likely You Go Your Way (And I’ll Go Mine),” the side 3, track 1 obscurity from Blonde on Blonde. Expect to hear it this spring when Old Crow Medicine Show embarks on their first tour after signing with Columbia Nashville.

Old Crow Medicine Show, which got its start—like The Band—by playing Canada and New York state before heading to Nashville, has signed with Sony Music Nashville/Columbia Records Nashville and scheduled their first release, 50 Years of Blonde on Blonde, for 4/28.

“Fifty years is a long time for a place like Nashville, Tennessee,” says Ketch Secor, the primary vocalist of the Old Crow Medicine Show. “But certain things have accelerated the pace of our city. And certain people have sent the hands of the clock spinning.  Bob Dylan is the greatest of these time-bending, paradigm-shifting Nashville cats.

“By deciding to record his newly found rock n’ roll voice in 1966 Nashville, Bob swung the gates of country music wide open; so wide, in fact, that 50 years later there was still enough of a crack left for Old Crow Medicine Show to sneak its banjos and fiddles through the gates with string band swagger.”

The 14-track album was recorded live in May at the CMA Theater inside the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

An Old Crow Medicine Show Performing Blonde on Blonde tour will hit 26 cities, including Los Angeles’ Wiltern on 5/5, New York’s Town Hall on 5/24 and London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on 6/28.
