Bob Dylan‘s classic album Blonde on Blonde celebrates its 50th anniversary in May of 2016, and to help mark the milestone, Old Crow Medicine Show will perform the record in its entirety at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

On May 12 and 13, at 8PM, OCMS will take the stage at the museum’s CMA Theater to play all 14 of Blonde on Blonde‘s tracks, front to back. Dylan recorded pieces of the project in Nashville, at Columbia Studio B, and used some of Music City’s legendary session musicians, including Charlie McCoy and Hargus “Pig” Robbins.

“This pivotal album opened the floodgates to Music City, and artists such as Joan Baez, Leonard Cohen, Paul McCartney and Neil Young came here to record,” explains Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum CEO Kyle Young. “Blonde on Blonde was the impetus for a major shift in both who and what was recorded in Nashville. Dylan’s master work left a new sensibility in its wake and gave rise to a magical time …”

Adds Old Crow Medicine Show’s Ketch Secor, “This album has indelibly shaped our band, not to mention Music City. Country music owes a deep debt of gratitude to Bob Dylan, and we are honored to help pay some of that debt and celebrate this influential Nashville record.”

Dylan, Cash and the Nashville Cats: A New Music City, an exhibit exploring Dylan’s work in Nashville; Johnny Cash‘s role in the renaissance that Dylan began; and the work of the studio musicians known as the Nashville Cats, is set to run at the Country Music Hall of Fame through Dec. 31. More information about the exhibit, as well as Old Crow Medicine Show’s concerts, is available at CountryMusicHallofFame.org.
