Grammy winners Old Crow Medicine Show know how to make a song simmer and then explode into glorious three-part harmony.  Their new single ‘Honey Chile’ is no exception.  The live performance video for this new single was shot in an unassuming basement studio.  Slide guitar, solid drums, and soaring vocals pour forth.   This is not a ‘Wagon Wheel’ redux by any means, it is a swampy Southern tour de force.

Bandleader Ketch Secor explains the new single: “When you mine the musical traditions of the South as we have you’re always going to run head-on into the region’s most successful export: Southern Rock, and my favorite performers of this style are the Charlie Daniels Band, who Old Crow was lucky enough to open for back in the early 2000’s. We’ll miss Charlie around these parts, but he lives on in songs like ‘Honey Chile,’ a backwoods slow burn about good lovin’ and other hard habits to break.”

‘Honey Chile’, the latest single from their new album ‘Paint This Town’ out April 22, 2022 via ATO Records. Secor and Co. took a far more insular approach to their new album than on previous releases, recording in their own East Nashville-based Hartland Studio and co-producing with Matt Ross-Spang (John Prine, Jason Isbell). The process unlocked a new level of creative freedom, reviving their spirit of pure abandon as the band rediscovers the deliberate unpredictability of their earliest busking days.

 

Along with the new single, the band has announced a coast-to-coast US spring/summer tour kicking off in April that will make stops in Philadelphia, New York, Portland, Seattle, and many more.
