TVD Vinyl Giveaway:
Old Crow Medicine Show, Best Of

When Americana string band Old Crow Medicine Show began busking on street corners, America’s grunge era was winding down and O.C.M.S. began to usher in a resurgence of folk rock. They have since toured the world, released five studio albums, and have been featured in the 2012 documentary Big Easy Express about their tour with Mumford & Sons and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros. Old Crow Medicine Show have helped to breathe new life into the folk genre, and the band is releasing a 14-song compilation of some of their most memorable hits, Best Of, which arrives in stores today February 10, 2017—and we have a vinyl copy to give away.

While their studio career began in 2004, the Grand Ole Opry members have been delivering energetic performances for almost 20 years. Since being discovered by folk icon Doc Watson, Old Crow Medicine Show has won two Grammy awards (“Best Folk Album” and “Best Long Form Music Video”) and received the RIAA’s Platinum certification for their single “Wagon Wheel.”

“Wagon Wheel” has been a staple cover song for acoustic musicians since its release, and reached a new level of notoriety in 2013 when Darius Rucker’s version topped the country charts. The song was written by frontman Ketch Secor and was based on an unreleased demo recorded by Bob Dylan who agreed to be credited as a co-author of the song, having written the chorus and melody over 30 years before the official release of Old Crow Medicine Show’s single. “Wagon Wheel” is, of course, included on Best Of.

The album features 12 songs from the band’s three albums released via Nettwerk Records- O.C.M.S. (2004), Big Iron World (2006), and Tennessee Pusher (2008), as well as two previously unreleased tracks. This release will be the first time any of these songs are available on vinyl.

    Big time in the jungle, cause my dad is a Vietnam vet and it reminds me of him my HERO…

    Wagon Wheel – the song me and my wife love to hear from Old Crow. We have seen them live 5 times now. Great band with great energy at each venue.

  • Claire Walraven

    Tell it to me! I can still hear my dad singing it at the top of his lungs around the house. Every time I listen to it I think of him and we’ve both been wanting it on vinyl for a while. Thanks for having his getaway, I’d love to see more of them!

    Humdinger is a real humdinger

  • Alessandro

    CC Rider. With all due respect to Elvis and Wayne Cochrane, OCMS take the song back to its core and claim it as their own in the process.

    Caroline is my favorite. I love the nostalgia of the lyrics – and the music.

  • Mr. Mac

    Wagon Wheel, which admittedly is the only one I’ve actually heard.
