First and foremost…congrats to the Medicine Show guys for the opportunity to play the Opry! This is surely a big deal and I, for one, could not be more pleased. I’ve been a fan for years of Old Crow Medicine Show, and I am all smiles when I see or hear their music. If you still haven’t bought your tickets to see O.C.M.S. as the Guest Artist at the Grand Ole Opry, you can do so here. But, if you cannot make it out Friday July 6th, don’t fret…for they will return shortly!
A lot of you are surely not too familiar with The Woods Amphitheater at Fontanel yet. I just saw Idena Menzel with the Nashville Symphony there. They will be playing there Saturday July 28! It’s outside, it’s gorgeous, it’s just plain cool. It’s literally the perfect venue to house a bluegrass, acoustic, throwback, rockabilly band like O.C.M.S. It truly will be a fun night!
Great music, great venue, great everything! Old Crow Medicine Show have this old-timey sound that makes you wish you were back in the mountains of early America drinking moonshine and dancing like a fool…but in the same beat, are so forward with their style. It’s so fun! They are reaching huge new heights with their success and I wish them all the best. Please do yourself a favor and check them out. They are unreal live…because I believe that all acoustic bluegrass/folk bands like this (take other examples like my favorites, “The Avett Brothers”) are one thing recorded, but EVERYTHING live in person. I cannot wait!
