Fifty years ago, Bob Dylan came to Nashville, joined forces with a gang of brilliant studio musicians, and recorded Blonde on Blonde, an album that whirled whimsy, poetry, and psychedelic aggression into a sound that Dylan called “thin wild mercury.” That album, which featured classics including “Just Like a Woman,” “Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands,” and “Visions of Johanna,” solidified Nashville as an ecumenical Music City.

For two nights at the CMA Theater, Grammy-winning Grand Ole Opry stringband Old Crow Medicine Show will perform Dylan’s masterful double-album, offering a unique spin on Blonde on Blonde in celebration of this half-century anniversary and of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s ongoing exhibition Dylan, Cash, and the Nashville Cats: A New Music City presented by Citi. “He helped this whole city along, and everybody here owes a debt of gratitude to Bob Dylan,” said Old Crow Medicine Show singer and multi-instrumentalist, Ketch Secor. With two nights of beautifully curated, undeniably delivered music, Old Crow Medicine Show will pay down that debt in surprising and unforgettable ways.
