But will they come on stage carrying a lump of coal and some white bread? RS Country reports: “For the eighth year in a row, Old Crow Medicine Show will stage their New Year’s Eve celebration at Nashville’s famous Ryman Auditorium. But this year, the string group is dedicating one of the two performances to Bob Dylan. For the December 30th show, Old Crow will perform the entirety of 50 Years of Blonde on Blonde, their 2016 live tribute to Dylan’s 1966 landmark album Blonde on Blonde. The group recorded their version during a concert series at the Country Music Hall of Fame’s CMA Theater.
For the band’s actual New Year’s Eve concert, on December 31st, Old Crow Medicine Show will dedicate the evening to their own material, including the often-covered staple “Wagon Wheel.” Singer-fiddle player Ketch Secor wrote the song based on an unfinished Dylan lyric, and Darius Rucker made it into a multi-platinum Number One in 2013.”
