Old Crow Medicine Show Take Home Best Folk Album at the 2015 Grammy Awards
"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.”
Other nominees for Best Folk Album included Three Bells, a collaboration between dobro masters Jerry Douglas, Mike Auldridge and Rob Ickes; Alice Gerrard's ‘Follow the Music;’ Eliza Gilkyson’s ‘The Nocturne Diaries’ and ‘A Reasonable Amount of Trouble‘ from Jesse Winchester.
