After an energetic performance at the 2015 Grammy Awards Premiere Ceremony, Old Crow Medicine Show continued the celebration with a win for Best Folk Album, for ‘Remedy.’

“We started our 18th year of making music together this year, and we want to thank Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie for lighting the way, ” singer Ketch Secor said on stage. “We want to especially dedicate this win to our manager, Norm Parenteau, for his fearless support … thanks to the Grand Ole Opry, and thanks to the Academy.”

‘Remedy’ features a collaboration with Dylan, throwing back to the band’s first hit, ‘Wagon Wheel, ’ which was originally outlined by the iconic singer. Dylan sent the band another song sketch from the same session, which became their tune ‘Sweet Amarillo.’

“The reason it sounds so catchy is because Bob said, ‘Play the fiddle, and get a good hook in your music, ’” Secor says. “That’s what a good, catchy song does. I think Bob is rooting for it, too … To me, the success is the fruition of Bob hearing the song and sending another one. It’s already done everything. It made a circle.”
