MUSIC NEWS - Old Crow Medicine Show released their fourth full-length studio album, Carry Me Back, on July 17, to much critical acclaim and to their highest chart position in their recording career. The band just embarked on a tour in support of Carry Me Back, playing shows at capacity in many cities and will continue touring in the coming weeks, including a show this Saturday in Nashville with the reunited, original line-up of BR5-49 opening.
The Lumineers and The Milk Carton Kids will serve as openers for other tour dates.
Carry Me Back was produced by Ted Hutt (Gaslight Anthem, Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly). Hutt pushed the band in a whole new way that they hadn't been pushed before. "Ted Hutt asked us to really dig deep as artists, as songwriters, to get to the heart of the matter of these songs, and especially not to settle for anything less than their greatness," recalls Ketch Secor of the band. Secor is also very proud of the result of the band's songwriting efforts on the album, saying "For me, Carry Me Back is all about the songs, how they line up, intertwine, switch partners, and promenade home. Each of these songs was an accident waiting to happen."
OCMS (Ketch Secor, Critter Fuqua, Kevin Hayes, Morgan Jahnig, Gill Landry, and Chance McCoy) recently began their summer tour of the USA in support of Carry Me Back on July 19 in Indianapolis, IN. The tour includes stops at an already sold out New York City's Central Park and the beautiful Fox Theater in Atlanta, among others.
