Today, the GRAMMY winning Nashville-based band Old Crow Medicine Show announced they have signed with ATO Records. The band and label previously partnered on Old Crow Medicine Show’s 2012 album Carry Me Back and their 2014 breakthrough Remedy, which won a GRAMMY for Best Folk Album in 2015. The band’s sixth studio album Volunteer was released in 2018 and was followed by Live at the Ryman in 2019. The band also announced today that Sally Williams and Red Light Management have partnered to oversee their management.

Old Crow Medicine Show’s Ketch Secor says, “We are very happy to be coming home to the ATO family. Their passion for music shows in everything they release and we’re just so excited to relaunch our partnership and recommit ourselves to making great records together.”
Jon Salter, President of ATO Records, adds, “OCMS is one of the great and important American bands. They have always challenged themselves creatively and this new project is testament to that. We’re so thrilled and proud to welcome the band back with open arms to the ATO family and we are committed to continue to build their legacy.”
“Old Crow has influenced countless artists and built a devoted following over the years due to their energetic live shows and relatable music,” says Coran Capshaw. “Red Light is proud to be partnering with Sally Williams to continue the growth of this great band.”
In the last year, the band has released three tracks that all speak to the current state of the world – “Nashville Rising” written after Nashville’s Super Tuesday tornadoes and directly benefiting relief efforts, “Quarantined” a tongue-in-cheek, classic country-inspired number about not being able to kiss your lover while quarantined, and “Pray For America,” which was commissioned by NPR as an inspirational piece for listeners coming out of COVID. They also appeared on a duet with Keb’ Mo’ titled “The Medicine Man,” and recently teamed up with filmmaker Julia Golonka to create a video for their 2008 track “Motel In Memphis,” raising funds for Nashville’s community-based grassroots organization Gideon’s Army.
In early 2020, Old Crow Medicine Show purchased a building in Nashville that has since been dubbed the band’s “Hartland Studio,” where they have been hard at work recording new music and producing their “Hartland Hootenanny” live stream variety shows.
