With the news that Old Crow Medicine Show is on permanent hiatus (I always view these things as permanent, whatever the language of the announcement), it is time that I feature one of the great acts of the Old Time resurgence. With Old Crow Medicine Show and the Carolina Chocolate Drops gone, who else other than Chatham County Line and Railroad Earth will carry that torch?
Old Crow Medicine Show great contribution, of course, is Wagon Wheel, a song built on the bones of an unreleased chorus and melody written by Bob Dylan. (And, yes, their version is far superior to Hootie’s.)
Wagon Wheel is off Old Crow Medicine Show’s self-titled debut album.
