Old Crow Medicine Show
Releasing on July 1st, I fully expect Old Crow Medicine Show’s new album, Remedy, to contribute the soundtrack to most every cookout/barbeque/picnic I attend for the rest of the summer. Known mostly for their song “Wagon Wheel” (which first began as a lyrical sketch by Bob Dylan and has spent the last 10 years being beloved by jukebox patrons in bars around the world, as well as having been covered numerous times by a lengthy list of artists), Old Crow Medicine Show makes warm, lively, foot-tappin’ Americana music that frequently charms even the staunchest of country music naysayers. Everything I’ve heard about Remedy suggests such a reputation is likely to continue. Have a listen of the album’s first single, Sweet Amarillo, below.
