Old Crow Medicine Show and Jason Isbell teamed up with the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development for a concert series—Soundtrack of America: Made In Tennessee—at Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame on Tuesday (May 24).
The intimate show of mostly Music City industry folks was live streamed onto a screen in downtown Chicago, where a crowd gathered to watch the concert. The interactive event allowed Jason and OCMS to converse with the Chicago crowd, who were able to walk around the screen and watch the show from a 360-degree panoramic viewpoint. The initiative was created to help introduce Chicagoans to the music of Tennessee, with Citizen Cope performing in Memphis on May 23 and Ashley Monroe scheduled to perform in Knoxville on May 25.
The string band Old Crow Medicine Show—with Ketch Secor and Critter Fuqua out front—delighted the crowd with a bevy of their songs, including “I Hear Them All,” “8 Dogs 8 Banjos,” “Wagon Wheel,” the Tom Petty cover “American Girl” and “Tennessee Bound,” which you can watch in the video below.
