OLD CROW MEDICINE SHOW PERFORMING BLONDE ON BLONDE
TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED
Nashville, TN – Columbia Records Nashville is pleased to announce the signing of the critically acclaimed, GRAMMY-Award winning, Country Music Roots ensemble Old Crow Medicine Show to the Sony Music Nashville/Columbia Records Nashville imprint. WATCH how the band surprised the Sony Music Nashville staff with the news.
On April 28, Columbia Nashville will release the Old Crow Medicine Show special recording of 50 Years of Blonde on Blonde to celebrate 50 years since the release of Bob Dylan’s iconic album Blonde on Blonde, which was recorded partly in Nashville, TN. Fans of both Bob Dylan, Old Crow Medicine Show and great music can pre-order 50 Years of Blonde on Blonde at the Old Crow Medicine Show online store and everywhere this Friday, February 24.
The 14-track album, 50 Years of Blonde on Blonde, was recorded LIVE at the CMA Theater located inside the historic Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum located in Nashville, TN in May 2016. Mixed by GRAMMY Award-winning Ted Hutt and Ryan Mall.
“Fifty years is a long time for a place like Nashville, Tennessee. Time rolls on slowly around here like flotsam and jetsam in the muddy Cumberland River. But certain things have accelerated the pace of our city. And certain people have sent the hands of the clock spinning. Bob Dylan is the greatest of these time-bending, paradigm-shifting Nashville cats,” says Ketch Secor, the primary vocalist of the Old Crow Medicine Show.
“By deciding to record his newly found rock n’ roll voice in 1966 Nashville, Bob swung the gates of Country music wide open; so wide, in fact, that 50 years later there was still enough of a crack left for Old Crow Medicine Show to sneak its banjos and fiddles through the gates with string band swagger.”
As a band that got their start busking on city streets, Old Crow Medicine Show is no stranger to the road. Today the Grand Ole Opry Members announce a special tour, Old Crow Medicine Show Performing Blonde on Blonde. Kicking off in Santa Barbara, CA at the Granada Theatre on May 4th, the band will perform the album in its entirety at each show.
