OCMS' McCoy releases single
Friday, May 24, 2019
– Old Crow Medicine Show's Chance McCoy released his new single "Lonesome Pine" today.
McCoy will release his debut album in the fall.
The songs reflects on his time spent as a wilderness guide in the American West.
"You've never truly been down and out until you've spent a night out in the woods cold and alone," McCoy told The Boot. "For me, some of those times have been voluntary, some have not. I remember being high up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, curled up on pine needles, just watching the wind shake the trees, the solitude was absolute but there was a beauty in it. I guess that kind of loneliness gets deep inside a person, I've never shaken it."
"Lonesome Pine" is the follow-up to Chance's debut single "No One Loves You (The Way That I Do)" released last month.
McCoy was raised in West Virginia. He would later take home top honors at the West Virginia State Championships for fiddle, banjo and dulcimer which ultimately led to getting the call from Old Crow a few years later.

The very best way - the only way, really - to see Old Crow Medicine Show is live. Like its namesake, the medicine shows of old that were part preaching, part snake oil sales pitches, part old time music and pure entertainment, the band delivers a high-energy performance that keeps the crowd on its feet the entire show.
This album includes the band's performances recorded between 2013 and 2019 at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, and what better place than the Mother Church of country music ...
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. ...
