Country Music Roots and GRAMMY Award-winning ensemble, Old Crow Medicine Show, is set to release their SIXTH album, 50 Years of Blonde on Blonde, this Friday, April 28th via Columbia Records Nashville.
Fifty years ago Bob Dylan released his iconic album Blonde on Blonde, which was recorded partly in Nashville, Tennessee, via Columbia Records. Now, Old Crow Medicine Show is set to release their special recording of the same album via the same record label, Columbia.
Fans of Bob Dylan, Old Crow Medicine Show and great music can pre-order 50 Years of Blonde on Blonde and receive THREE instant song downloads, including “Rainy Day Women #12 & 35 (Live),” “Just Like A Woman (Live)” and “Obviously 5 Believers (Live).”
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 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.”
Beginning next week Old Crow Medicine Show will kick off a special tour, the Old Crow Medicine Show Performing Blonde on Blonde tour Santa Barbara, CA at the Granada Theatre on May 4th. The band will perform the album in its entirety at each show.
The Old Crow Medicine Show Performing Blonde on Blonde tour will take Old Crow Medicine Show to 26 cities including Los Angeles, New York City, London, Seattle, Boston, Chicago, and Washington, DC.
