8 Dogs 8 Banjos - Old Crow Medicine Show

from the album Remedy (2014)

Today I am venturing deeper into the deep south than anyone with my background should ever attempt.  This is going to require some acclimating.

Part of that process has me listening to some real shit kicking tunes.  Top of my list is 8 Dogs 8 Banjos by Old Crow Medicine Show.

This song is a hard romp of fiddles, banjos, guitars, and such.  The lyrics consist of repetitive calls and responses that ring like mantras.  Lines like "Eight Dogs, Eight Banjos", "Hot Coffee, Sweet Tea", "Good Lovin', Hard Times", "Green Rivers, Tall Trees", and "Corn Whiskey, Dirt Weed" tell me everything I need to know for this adventure.

Check this song out.  It earns its place with other great songs by Old Crow Medicine Show, like Wagon Wheel, Methamphetamine, and Caroline.
