Old Crow Medicine Show’s Chance McCoy Readies Solo Debut

Chance McCoy

Chance McCoy is releasing his debut solo single No One Loves You (The Way That I Do)” today (April 26). Best known as a member of the Grammy-winning Americana group Old Crow Medicine Show, the song is the first peek into his upcoming debut album set to release later this year.

“I came up with the lick down in Muscle Shoals in the middle of the night at a friend’s cabin on the lake. My son had his guitar tuned all crazy, I couldn’t sleep so I snatched it off the couch and came up with the lick. It was meditative, just rocking back and forth on my bed playing that figure on the acoustic. The lyrics are written about my time as a white water guide out west. They’re all true except the romance. I had to make that part up because I was lonely as hell back then. I was sleeping in the back of my truck. All I cared about was being on the river, riding those waves,” said McCoy.

Multi-instrumentalist McCoy’s debut album is set to drop this Fall. “People know me as a folk musician, but I’m expanding my creative horizons and blazing some new trails with this album,” said McCoy of the new project. “Wandering’s what I do.”
