GRAMMY Award-winning group Old Crow Medicine Show announced their return to the famous Ryman Auditorium stage in Nashville for their 15th annual New Year’s Eve show on December 31. Tickets go on sale this Friday, July 22, with an artist presale starting Tuesday, July 19 at 10:00 a.m.
“I’m ecstatic about this year’s New Year’s Eve party at the Ryman,” Ketch Secor shared. “After 14 straight seasons ringing in the new year on the stage at the famed Mother Church of Country Music, our band has uncovered some secrets to throwing a great party in downtown Nashville. Every year proves to be something bigger and better and even though we are closing in on our second decade of year-end Ryman performance, we are still humbled every time we set foot in the place. It is simply holy ground. What better place to start fresh at the stroke of midnight on January 1?
Earlier this spring, Old Crow Medicine Show released their seventh studio album Paint This Town, which just reached No. 1 on the US radio album chart, earning the group the band’s 10th career. The album also debuted atop Billboard’s Bluegrass Albums chart, overtaking Steep Canyon Rangers for the most No. 1s in chart history. Paint This Town received widespread acclaim from the press, including Associated Press, Consequence, SPIN, Rolling Stone, NPR Music, Bandcamp, Garden & Gun and many more, with many calling it their best release to date. The band recently spoke with NPR’s World Cafe, guitarist Mike Harris shared a glimpse of his gear for Premier Guitar’s Rig Rundown, and drummer Jerry Pentecost spoke about the importance of honoring DeFord Bailey for the WNXP free samples. Additionally, Old Crow Medicine Show was recently announced to appear in the planned second season of CMT Campfire Sessions, which airs on August 5.
Paint This Town was recorded at the band’s East Nashville-based Hartland studio and co-produced with Matt Ross-Spang (John Prine, Jason Isbell).
