OCMS sees "Nashville Rising"

Friday, April 3, 2020 – Old Crow Medicine Show released a new track and video today of "Nashville Rising" in the wake of recent disasters.

The song drops exactly one month after eight deadly tornados ravaged through the state of Tennessee. Proceeds from the song will directly benefit The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee's Emergency Response Fund. The video was edited by filmmaker Julia Golonka and illustrates devastation and dedicated volunteers in action.

The Middle Tennessee community was hit hard, and then harder - first by the March 3 tornados, then the COVID-19 pandemic. Old Crow's Ketch Secor spent the early hours of Super Tuesday, huddled in a crawl space with his two kids, not realizing until the next morning the devastation that had occurred only a couple blocks away.

"I love Nashville," said Secor. "I moved here right after the last tornado that really tore through this town and never thought we'd see another. I know most of us never thought we'd see anything like what this last month has been, whether in Music City or elsewhere around the world. These are the dark times where music can really light the way, the times of immeasurable hardship where music can soothe a troubled soul. I wrote 'Nashville Rising' in the hopes that positivity, perseverance, and people power will be just as contagious as COVID-19."

Old Crow Medicine Show recorded "Nashville Rising" at its own Hartland Studio in East Nashville just days before a city-wide "safer at home" order was issued. The track features the band, Secor, Morgan Jahnig, Cory Younts, Joe Andrews, Robert Price, Charlie Worsham and Jerry Pentecost along with special guests Molly Tuttle (guitar and vocals), Shelly Colvin (harp and vocals) and Skylar Wilson (vibes).

CD review - Jubilee While they started as a bluegrass band, Old Crow Medicine Show (OCMS) in recent years have won two Grammys and are considered one of our best roots bands, meshing Americana, old-timey music, folk and rock into an appealing sound. "Jubilee," their eighth studio album, is likely named for their 25th anniversary although the leadoff track is "Jubilee Jones." Co-producer Matt Ross-Spang returns from their previous effort "Paint This Town" and they again recorded in ...
CD review - Live From the Ryman 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 ...
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. ...
