Old Crow Medicine Show left their home state of Tennessee this week for a drive-in performance at Ameris Bank Amphitheatre in Alpharetta, GA. The 26-song performance saw the sextet run through a variety of originals and covers, including a geographically-relevant take on OutKast‘s “Hey Ya!”
Old Crow began the show with a traditional cover of “Tell It To Me” before a string of originals ensued. “Alabama High Test”, “Child of the Mississippi”, “8 Dogs, 8 Banjos”, “Brave Boys”, “Down Home Girl”, “Sweet Amarillo”, “Crazy Eyes”, “Brushy Mountain Conjugal Trailer”, “Been All Around This World”, and “I Done Wrong Blues” led to a couple more traditional covers, “Tear It Down” and “Raise A Ruckus”.
The original “Lovesick Blues” fell into the second half of the one-set performance, which came before a cover of ‘Ma’ Rainey & Her Georgia Jazz Band‘s “See See Rider”. “Methamphetamine” then set up one of the band’s newest tunes, lockdown single “Quarantined”, followed by “Caroline” and “I Hear Them All/ This Land Is Your Land”.
A Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young cover, “Helpless”, kept the drive-in performance moving for Old Crow, before traditional covers of “Cocaine Habit” and “Hard To Love” brought the show to its final portion. “Take ‘Em Away” set up one of the nights highlights, a cover of local heroes OutKast‘s “Hey Ya!”, which featured drummer Jerry Pentecost on vocals.
