Old Crow announces new disc, tour

Wednesday, May 16, 2012 – Old Crow Medicine Show will release "Carry Me Back" on July 17 through ATO Records.

"Carry Me Back" is the band's fourth studio album and first since 2008's "Tennessee Pusher." The disc features 12 songs and was recorded at the Sound Emporium studios in Nashville.

"Carry Me Back" was produced by Ted Hutt (Gaslight Anthem, Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly). "Ted Hutt asked us to really dig deep as artists, as songwriters, to get to the heart of the matter of these songs and, especially, not to settle for anything less than their greatness," said Ketch Secor of the band.

"For me, 'Carry Me Back' is all about the songs, how they line up, intertwine, switch partners, and promenade home. Each of these songs was an accident waiting to happen," he said.

OCMS (Ketch Secor, Critter Fuqua, Kevin Hayes, Morgan Jahnig, Gill Landry, and Chance McCoy) will tour this summer starting with adate in Kentucky in late June and concluding in late August in Atlanta.

"The greatness of an old-time string band lies in its performance," Secor said. "The way it percolates, rattling itself almost to the edge. When you've got a top-notch studio like Sound Emporium, and 12 strong tunes in the works, and the time and patience it takes to get it right--that's when great performances can be captured."

CD reviews for Old Crow Medicine Show

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. ...
CD review - 50 Years of Blonde on Blonde Whenever an artist attempts to cover a classic work in whole, it can't help but seem like a somewhat audacious effort from the outset. After all, tackling an album that's stood the test of time, one that's already an integral part of the musical lexicon in its original form, is a formidable task. At best, the original artist's imprint is difficult to supersede, but at worst it can become a regrettable error that yields disastrous results. Consequently, credit Old Crow ...
