Folk band Old Crow Medicine Show will be touring this summer to support their new record “Brushy Mountain Conjugal Trailer”. The band has had a string of successes lately and have even performed at the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Old Crow Medicine Show has always written lyrics about hard times, but the band’s lead singer, Ketch Secor, is actually from a privileged background and went to prep school in New England. Secor told “Rolling Stone Magazine” that he can still write about such subjects as unemployment in the coal industry since he’s traveled the American South extensively and gotten to know the kind of hard luck people he’s writing about. Basically, he’s done his research.
Personally, I love the music Old Crow Medicine Show makes. According to Susan McGalla in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, their sound is acoustic and uncompromising. It could have been made 50 years ago before country music was watered down with slick production and electric sounds. Actually, their music is more bluegrass or roots than country.
Old Crow Medicine Show’s first hit was the song “Wagon Wheel”. That was just an awesome song that just about everyone liked even if they weren’t especially into roots music. Their version was better than the Darius Rucker version that came later. I am glad that artists who are making music the way that they want to are able to make a decent living at it and have hits.

Bleep. Bleep. Bleep. That was basically most of what we all heard when Kanye West took the stage to close out the 2015 Billboard Music Awards last night in Las Vegas. It was an interesting final performance in a couple of ways. First, Kendall and Kylie Jenner got major boos from the large MGM audience as they introduced their famous brother-in-law, and after that, things got weird.
The audience at the performance as well as the television audience both could barely see or hear the amazing talent deliver “All Day” and “Black Skinhead.”
It’s called censorship, and ABC TV decided to lean that way. Because of all the bad language, the majority of what the hip hop artist was expressing was mostly inaudible, according to the WashingtonPost.com.

Network alongside the Billboard Music Awards telecast.

It’s not an easy piece of family drama to deal with.
BB King was a jazz legend. As much as he did for the music community, he almost didn’t get his chance at stardom. Fans like Keith Mann know that he was living on $60 a week working at a radio station. Even though back then that was good money, he still didn’t have enough to pay his band and live comfortably.

There was no one that could be BB King like himself. He said that this is often the mentality he used throughout his life when it came to his career.
