Old Crow Medicine Show to join the Grand Ole Opry family!
We’re excited to announce that Old Crow Medicine Show was invited to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry and will be formally inducted on Tuesday, September 17th.
They were taken by surprise last Friday night at The Ohio Theatre at Playhouse Square in Cleveland, OH when Grand Ole Opry member and country music icon Marty Stuart surprised them on stage and asked if they’d like to become the next members of the legendary establishment. Old Crow members answered with a resounding yes and hands in the air while the sold-out crowd responded with a standing ovation. Stuart and the band then combined forces on “We Don’t Grow Tobacco” before the band launched into their signature fan favorite “Wagon Wheel.” Here’s the video:
“From our humble beginnings on street corners to finding acclaim on stages worldwide, our eyes have always been on one prize in particular. More than anything else Old Crow Medicine Show has wanted to be a part of the Grand Ole Opry, “ said OCMS fiddler Ketch Secor. “To join the company of those brilliant, bright stars who first shot across Country Music’s most celestial stage— Roy Acuff, Deford Bailey, Uncle Dave Macon, Maybelle Carter, Sarah Cannon— is the finest company that any picker could ever hope to keep.”
