Old Crow Medicine Show (formed in 1998) is an American Old-time, bluegrass string band for Nashville, Tennessee, in the U.S.
Vocalist, banjoist and resonator player Critter Fuqua first met vocalist, fiddler and harmonica player Ketch Secor in seventh grade which is when the pair began playing music together. Other members of the band vocalist, guitarist and banjo player Willie Watson, guitjo player Kevin Hayes and upright bass player Morgan Jahnig arrived later growing up on a diet of Nirvana and Public Enemy. They met from across the whole of the U.S from New York to New Orleans and impressed none other than Doc Watson busking in front of a pharmacy in North Carolina in 2000, which led to a show at his iconic folk festival Merlefest.
After years of busking on street corners, the band relocated to Nashville as the famous Grande Ole Opry asked the Old Crow Medicine Show to participate in a number of summer events at the Grande Ole Opry House. The band went on their first real tour in 2001 and later made appearances at 2003’s SXSW before signing with Nettwerk America in 2003. The eponymously titled debut album featured the singles “Take ‘em Away” and their notorious “Wagon Wheel” and surprised many people by selling over 100,000 copies.
The band subsequent offerings include the 2006 album “Big Iron World”, 2008’s “Tennessee Pusher” and 2012’s “Carry Me Back” which was produced by Ted Hutt. Each of the albums received favourable reviews and honed the band's skills leading to to the 2014 album “Remedy” released through Dave Mathew’s label According to Our Records (ATO Records). In 2013 along with Mumford and Sons and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, Old Crow Medicine Show, featured in the Grammy winning documentary/long music video “Big Easy Express”, which documented the bands’ Railroad Tours of 2011.
