Nashville Notes

Best-known for the original version of “Wagon Wheel,” Old Crow Medicine Show is the newest artist signed to Columbia Records Nashville. The band crafted the eventual Darius Rucker hit out of an unfinished Bob Dylan tune. Their first Columbia release will be the live 50 Years of Blonde on Blonde, which celebrates Dylan’s iconic album record partially in Music City. It’ll be out April 28.

Darius Rucker sang “Love Do What It Do” with Robert Randolph and the Family Band Tuesday on the Today show. If you missed it, you can watch it online.  

Alison Krauss did the Willie Nelson-penned “I Never Cared for You” Monday night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. You can check out her performance with members of The Cox Family on YouTube. The song is one of the covers on her new Windy City album, which came out Friday.
