Old Crow returns to Ryman for NYE gig
Tuesday, July 19, 2022
– Old Crow Medicine Show will return to the Ryman Auditorium on New Year's Eve for the 15t time.
Tickets are on sale this Friday.
"I'm over the moon about this year's New Year's bash at the Ryman," said lead singer Ketch Secor. "After 14 consecutive seasons of ringing in the new year from the stage of the world-renowned Mother Church of country music, our band has figured out a few secrets to throwing a great party in downtown Nashville. Every year proves to be something bigger and better and even as we close in on our second decade of year-end Ryman performances, we're still humbled every time we set foot in the place. It's just plain holy ground. What better place to start anew at the stroke of midnight, January 1?"
Earlier this spring, Old Crow Medicine Show released its seventh studio album "Paint This Town." The disc was recorded in the band's own East Nashville-based Hartland Studio and co-produced with Matt Ross-Spang.

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. ...
