Old Crow Medicine Show – We Don’t Grow Tobacco

Artist: Old Crow Medicine Show
Song: We Don’t Grow Tobacco
Album: Carry Me Back (2012)

Old Crow Medicine Show is an Americana string band based in Nashville, Tennessee. Its music has been called old-time, folk, and alt-country. Along with original songs, the band performs many pre World War II blues and folk songs. It has recorded since 1998. Bluegrass musician Doc Watson discovered it while its members were busking outside a pharmacy in Boone, North Carolina in 2000. With an old-time string sound fueled by punk rock energy, it has influenced acts like Mumford & Sons and contributed to a revival of banjo-picking string bands playing Americana music—leading to variations on it.
