Best of Old Crow Medicine Show

Twelve years ago, Old Crow Medicine Show dropped it’s debut album, O.C.M.S. Since then, the band has become one of the standout new roots acts, blending bluegrass and folk with punk rock energy.

The band recently released a collection with studio highlights and unreleased tracks. Songs include “Down Home Girl,” “I Hear Them All,” “Black-Haired Québécoise,” “Heart Up in the Sky,” and, of course, the platinum-selling, crowd singalong favorite, “Wagon Wheel.”

From Folk Radio U.K.:

“With a career stretching back to 1998, nine albums released, a pretty relentless gig schedule and countless festival appearances, Old Crow Medicine Show has been in the vanguard of developing a 21st Century take on old-time, string band music. The band has been recognised and honoured with induction into the Grand Ole Opry in 2013, and the 2014’s Remedy won the Grammy for Best Folk Album, so a “best of” album might be considered a little overdue. Between 2004 and 2008, the band recorded with Nettwerk Records. They released three albums, Old Crow Medicine Show (2004), often shortened to O.C.M.S., Big Iron World (2006) and Tennessee Pusher (2008) and it’s these albums that Nettwerk has been able to draw on for Best Of, along with an EP track from 2006 and two previously unreleased tracks.”
