During the pre-show press conference, Nettwerk Music Group’s Mark Jowett (VP of International A&R/Publishing) and Danielle Romeo (Sr. Director of Publicity) surprised Old Crow with Platinum plaques commemorating 1 million tracks sold of the band’s signature song “Wagon Wheel.” The single originally appeared on the band’s debut album, O.C.M.S., released in 2004 on Nettwerk.
Old Crow’s Ketch Secor was also honored the previous evening at the Ryman Auditorium during a celebration of Darius Rucker’s #1 hit “Wagon Wheel,” which Secor and Bob Dylan penned.
