Old Crow Medicine Show’s big break in 2000 is the sort of story you don’t hear too often in the modern music industry, and perhaps that’s part of the allure of the traditional bluegrass group.
While busking on the streets of Boone, N.C., the band’s regular gig, folk legend Doc Watson stumbled upon their performance and gave them a gig on the spot, which led the group to move to Nashville.
Since then, Old Crow wrote and sold a million copies of the widely known hit “Wagon Wheel,” and recently, the band took home this year’s Grammy Award for Best Folk Album for its latest full-length, “Remedy.”
The band makes a stop in Charleston next week during its extensive tour in support of the album with opening act The Devil Makes Three, an Americana trio.
