That is way out there in the desert east of LA. In april it may not be over 100 degrees yet. I'm hoping this will mean some other west coast dates on their way home from down under.

Nashville's Old Crow Medicine Show is set to rock Coachella like it's 1926

Old Crow Medicine Show

At approximately 3pm on Saturday, legions of Muse fans crowded in front of the Coachella main stage to ensure prime viewing spots for the UK space-rockers will be transformed into back country peckerwoods. Nashville, Tennesseeís Old Crow Medicine Show is fixiní to party like itís 1926, and as fiddler and vocalist Ketch Secor explains, thatís very much a good thing.


Youíre Nashville-based band, right? Iíve got a lot of relatives from Eastern Kentucky in a place called Johnson County. Thatís a special part of the world, man.

Ketch Secor: I know Johnson County. We play a lot in a place called Prestonsburg. They just built a new state-of-the-art venue there, and of course all the money came from this company called Black Diamond Coal.

As it usually does in those parts.

Ketch Secor: Well, Black Diamond was flush and they built a big venue and we play there occasionally. We have a lot of fans in East Kentucky because we play a lot of hillbilly music, but East Kentucky needs good fiddle music more than anyone else. Itís funny how the inventors of the craft could be so removed from the rewards of their endeavor. You know how it is down there. Youíve got Wal-Marts and a couple of chain stores and hot new country on the radio. About 60 years before, and for 100 years before that, this incredible style of fiddle music was coming out of those hills. I think people really appreciate hearing a good fiddle played in East Kentucky.

I agree. As a kid who did a fair amount of cross-country driving with my family, we listened to a lot of country: KT Oslin, John Conlee, Lacy J. Dalton. They were right on the fringe of crossing over into pop, but these days I feel like country has been completely commandeered by the mainstream. On one hand youíve got to be happy about the genreís success as a whole, but on the other itís really not what it once was.

Ketch Secor: Yeah, and it kind chokes me up a bit. I, like you, grew up loving what was popular in country music when I was a kid, and it was from John Conlee to about Randy Travis.

John Conleeís Rose Colored Glasses was a classic.

Ketch Secor: Now, you can go to the Opry and John Conlee sings ďRose Colored GlassesĒ every weekend, so it didnít stop. You can still have that piece of country music, and if all you listen to is WSM radio, you can live in that world of country music, and I do. I live in a black neighborhood and I listen to the radio station that the old ladies listen to because itís safe and I like the commercials. Everythingís got a jingle! Itís really how you choose to exist. I would say the problem with country music is the problem with all music, and a problem of the time. Country music is a populist form. It belongs to the people, but when you blast it at the people and itís this sweet candy music, then itís got nothing to do with country. Country people invented country music, but now they have to buy it back. Theyíve lost the skills on how to make it. The reinvention of country music is what the Old Crow Medicine Show is up to, and thatís something that needs to be done.

And unfortunately itís a genre of music thatís been co-opted by a very specific socio-political movement.

Ketch Secor: You went to Hank Williams shows so you could dance, drink in the parking lot and feel up girls, and that sounds like rock Ďní roll. Thatís counter-culture. Now you go to country music to take a loyalty oath, buy skull products and sign your kid up for the armed services. Country music has been co-opted, reformed and sold back to us, but itís a f*cking impostor. But country music was always for the peckerwoods. Those right-wingers, theyíve got a place in country music, and theyíre entitled to it. Now politics aside, if you grew up in horse culture, if you grew up knowing how to handle a team of mules, country music belongs to you. Even if you hate Obama, even if youíre scared as hell of California. If you grew up working with your hands, country music belongs to you, no matter where you stand, what you stand for, or what youíre afraid of. But thereís a lot of deception because the commodification of our art means power and money for a lot of people. If country music filled you with hope the way they say it does, rather than dumb you down, this would be a different kind of American south weíre living in.

Where did the band's name come from? It has a bit of mystery, a bit of rock Ďní roll, a bit of mysticism, a little American Indian.

Ketch Secor: When we first got started in about 1998, we started because we had to get out of that [upstate New York] town. It was just getting ridiculous. We were all 21 and in love with the same girl. It was just time to move out, so we headed out to Canada to go play street corners. We needed a name that sounded mystical and Indian and country and black, but most of all it needed to sound like it was from the í20s. We needed something that would roll off your tongue; that had some cadence to it. So that was a title I came up with coming back from a dishwashing job in Ithaca, NY that summer.

Your last full-length, Tennessee Pusher, was produced by Don Was. He really did something to that album that makes it true to its art form, yet makes it accessible to those who might not be in tune with country music and its instrumentation.

Ketch Secor: Thatís one of the hallmarks of the work of Don Was. He can recast the light. Thereís a way that he can look at a picture that a lot of other people canít, and thereís an angle to the record that weíre really proud of. But see, the hillbillies and the peckerwoods, they know that itís country music. Itís in their blood. You canít deny the fiddle. A fiddle wonít fool you. Hereís a good example, though. Weíre not playing Stagecoach. Weíre playing the one before with all the rock bands and the hip-hop artists. When we get on that stage in front of all them people that have just heard the hottest and biggest sounds from 2010, weíre gonna get up there and weíre gonna play music from Memphis, 1926...and youíre gonna love it, because weíre all from Memphis, 1926. Because Elvis is, because the Beatles are, because the Rolling Stones are. Half them artists that are gonna be on stage are gonna have a root that stretches out into the American south. Thatís the power of this music, and itís not because of the Old Crow Medicine Show by any means. We just happen to be picking it up because somebody dropped it off. This music belongs to all of us, and itís empowering.

You guys have anything going for the next record? Anything written or any release plans?

Ketch Secor: Well, Iím looking at a guitar right now and thereís a big stack of papers next to it. I see my Tascam Digital Workstation. So yeah, itís happening. I donít know where of for who or what the timeline is, but thatís a big old stack of papers right there. I hope thereís something in there.

Youíre in the demo phase?

Ketch Secor: I guess thatís the demo phase. We go from the demo phase to the record phase pretty quick. Weíre a string band now, mind you. Weíre testing new material out on a street corner. If you make an extra buck, you know itís good. Iím not sure when weíre gonna have a new Old Crow record, but itíll probably be recorded in the year.

Anyone feel me on that?

I imagine there are people in the crowd very confused as the band they're seeing. I don't like the folks way in front who aren't into it -- if you don't dig it, stand aside and let some of the dancing folks in front.

I best these festivals are insane and sort of horrible, but I do have a hankering to see the Old Crow out of doors now.

(This is totally unrelated, but how can Willie possibly wear that shirt every single show?)

Reading this one made me smile real big. Please bring back the Tear It Down/Jimmy Sutton pair-up. "You can't play a song about a mule without playing a song about a sheep."

You know what is sad? I still have to look them up, straight up pitiful I know. Ain't like haven't heard it a couple thousand times.

btw, My bro was at the show and he said they blew the roof off the motha! Rick was really surprised how much everyone was into it... not that he had doubts about the boys but just that folks were THAT into it! He said they were on the main stage and playing in front of a good 35,000 people or more! And he said when Willie, in classic form, broke his string everyone was like "oh no!" but when he came back in less than 30 seconds without missing a beat and sang his part that the place went completely bonkers!!! They did my brother really proud. Rick hasn't seen them near as many times as I have but he was standing right next to me on 2nd Ave here in Nashville when we saw them busking way back when. Its a very very cool thing to see that whole journey. Rick had a great time, it blows my mind because my brother hardly ever goes to concerts. He is much more of a sports fan. It's the equivalent of my obsession with music I reckon. It was real cool to hear about how much fun he had and look at all his pictures and videos. I couldnt make it because I wasnt for sure about my taxes and what have you. But anyway, really looking forward to these old crow shows coming up. Been since New Years.
