New Old Crowe EP

Old Crowe Medicine Show's new record Tennessee Pusher isn't due out until September 23, but fans can get a sneak preview by checking out the band's new Caroline EP, which was released today on iTunes. The EP features three tracks off of the upcoming album, which was produced by Don Was (who has also worked with Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones).

Was has said about OCMS: "People ask me what The Old Crow Medicine Show are all about. If I'm in a hurry, I just say that they're The Clash of bluegrass music, but that doesn't really do anyone any justice. I could tell 'em that they're a rock 'n roll band who use fiddles and acoustic guitars instead of Les Pauls and Marshal stacks, but that's only one small part of the story. They're an American Band - even more so than Grand Funk Railroad! In fact, it's not hyperbolic to say that, as musicians, songwriters and singers, they are the smartest and finest purveyors of American music to come down the pike in decades."

Catch the band on September 24 at the Berklee Performance Center, and listen to the entire EP right here:
