old crow medicine show 2016

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Bob Dylan’s classic album Blonde on Blonde, the Country Music Hall of Fame ® and Museum will host Grammy-winning Old Crow Medicine Show performing the album in its entirety. The concerts will take place on back to back nights at 8 p.m. May 12 and 13, in the museum’s CMA Theater. The event is in support of the exhibit Dylan, Cash, and the Nashville Cats: A New Music City, presented by Citi.

Museum CEO Kyle Young says, “Fifty years ago, Bob Dylan came to Music City to work with Nashville’s unmatched session players, the Nashville Cats. The result was Blonde on Blonde. This pivotal album opened the floodgates to Music City, and artists such as Joan Baez, Leonard Cohen, Paul McCartney and Neil Young came here to record. Blonde on Blonde was the impetus for a major shift in both who and what was recorded in Nashville. Dylan’s master work left a new sensibility in its wake and gave rise to a magical time we explore in our major exhibition, Dylan, Cash and the Nashville Cats: A New Music City.

Tickets are $34 and $39 and will go on sale April 1 at 10 a.m. CDT. To purchase tickets, visit countrymusichalloffame.org.
