Old Crow Medicine Show celebrates "Jubilee"

Tuesday, June 20, 2023 – Old Crow Medicine Show will release their new album, "Jubilee," on Aug. 25 via ATO Records.

"Jubilee" finds the group once again co-producing with Matt Ross-Spang (Drive-By Truckers, St. Paul & the Broken Bones) and recording at their own Hartland Studios. Their eighth studio album features appearances from Mavis Staples and singer/songwriter Sierra Ferrell.

The single "Miles Away," a reflective track co-written by bandleader Ketch Secor and bluegrass ace Molly Tuttle, with guest vocals from Old Crow Medicine Show co-founder Willie Watson is out.

Secor said, "This is one of those rearview songs where objects in the mirror are closer than they appear. 25 years of making music on the road means you're always coming back to the same places as a different person; there's a reminder of your past self and the choices you made back when. Molly Tuttle and I wrote this one together and when it was through, I asked my Old Crow co-founder Willie Watson to make his first appearance on an Old Crow record in years. After all, this is a song about amends, of bygones being bygones, and of renewal."

<"Miles Away" marks the first time Watson has recorded with Old Crow Medicine Show in more than 10 years. He will hit the road with the band this fall, performing as an opening act in addition to joining them on stage.

The disc includes jug-band tunes, Irish folk songs and exultant gospel jams.

Earlier this year, Old Crow Medicine Show released a protest song, "Louder Than Guns," written in the aftermath of the Covenant School shooting in Nashville. A father of two and co-founder of The Episcopal School of Nashville,

CD reviews for Old Crow Medicine Show

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. ...
