Celebrated roots string band Old Crow Medicine Show won the GRAMMY for BEST FOLK ALBUM for their highly praised album Remedy (ATO Records). Though the band was previously awarded the BEST LONG FORM VIDEO GRAMMY for the 2013 film The Big Easy Express, this marks the first time Old Crow Medicine Show has won a GRAMMY for one of their albums. The band also delivered a fiery performance of “8 Dogs 8 Banjos” during the Grammy Pre-Tel Show, which Rolling Stone listed as one of the highlights of the show, followed by this post GRAMMY profile on the band’s triumphant evening. Remedy marked the highest Billboard debut in the band’s 18 year career and was praised by the press with coverage that included NPR Music, NPR Morning Edition, Garden & Gun, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Huffington Post, Associated Press and many more. Old Crow Medicine Show also performed on CONAN, headlined their biggest tour ever and most recently was the subject of an extensive profile on CBS This Morning. [Click HERE to view.]
