Old Crow Medicine Show proved they know how to put on a stellar bluegrass show during their recent stop at the Grand Ole Opry.
Performing “My Bones Gonna Rise Again,” things felt more like an 1800s tent revival than concert hall during their performance. Despite it’s deeply rooted history in bluegrass music, the Grand Ole Opry doesn’t feature nearly as much of that plucky sound that it once had. Luckily for those in attendance, Old Crow Medicine Show had more than enough bluegrass vigor to go around.
The band played a mile a minute as mandolinist Cory Younts led the group in the mountain hymn. There was hardly ever a moment any member of Old Crow Medicine Show could take a breather. In fact, the band was feeling the spirit so much, Younts even danced across the stage after their individual solos.
Old Crow Medicine Show is most famous for their song “Wagon Wheel,” which was written by founding member Ketch Secor and Bob Dylan.
Released in 2004, the song is certified platinum as of April 2013. The song has become a standard of bluegrass and honky tonk musicians alike, and covered countless times.
