Old Crow Medicine Show On World Cafe

Monday, July 28, 2014

Our guests today, Old Crow Medicine Show, were singing on the street in North Carolina 14 years ago when none other than Doc Watson came by and gave them his blessing. The band's Ketch Secor borrowed a Bob Dylan outtake and turned it into an anthem called "Wagon Wheel" that only got bigger when Darius Rucker recorded it. Since we last saw them they've became a part of the Grand Ole Opry and have a new album called Remedy. And Dylan sent them another fragment of a song, "Sweet Amarillo," to finish. It's part of our set today.
