Wagon Wheel – History

“Wagon Wheel” by Old Crow Medicine Show, a quintessential piece of Americana music that has captivated audiences with its infectious melody and timeless charm. Allow me to delve into the background of this beloved song.

“Wagon Wheel” originated as a partially written song by Bob Dylan, an icon in the realm of folk and Americana music. The song was part of a bootleg recording called “You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere,” which Dylan penned during the Basement Tapes sessions with The Band in 1967. However, Dylan’s version remained unfinished, with only a chorus and a basic melody.

Fast forward to the late 1990s when Ketch Secor, a member of Old Crow Medicine Show, stumbled upon the bootleg recording. Inspired by Dylan’s fragment, Secor took it upon himself to complete the song, crafting verses and additional lyrics to complement the chorus. The result was a seamless blend of old-time sensibilities and modern storytelling.

Released in 2004 on Old Crow Medicine Show’s debut album “OCMS,” “Wagon Wheel” swiftly gained traction, becoming a staple in the band’s live performances and garnering widespread acclaim. Its rollicking rhythm, evocative lyrics, and catchy chorus evoke a sense of nostalgia for a bygone era of American folklore and tradition.

The song’s narrative follows a traveler’s journey from New England down to the South, longing to reach his destination in Raleigh, North Carolina. Along the way, he encounters various characters and experiences, painting a vivid picture of life on the road and the allure of home.

“Wagon Wheel” embodies the spirit of Americana music, drawing from a rich tapestry of influences ranging from folk and bluegrass to country and blues. Its enduring popularity is a testament to its universal appeal and ability to resonate with audiences of all ages.

In summary, “Wagon Wheel” by Old Crow Medicine Show stands as a modern classic, showcasing the time-honored tradition of storytelling through song and serving as a testament to the enduring power of American roots music.
