Old Crow Medicine Show

Old Crow Medicine Show Co-write Another Song With Bob Dylan

Our guests today, Old Crow Medicine Show, got a fabled start to their 15 year career, singing on the street in North Carolina when none other than Doc Watson came by and gave them his blessing. They borrowed a Bob Dylan outtake and turned it into a folk and country anthem called "Wagon Wheel" that only got bigger when Darius Ruckr recorded it. Since we last saw them they have became a part of the Grand Ole Opry and they have a new album called Remedy. Oh, and Bob Dylan actually sent them another fragment of a song to finish called “Sweet Amarillo” It's part of our set today.
