It was a true @opry Moment Saturday night at the Opry’s 93rd birthday celebration and performance. Woody Paul gave an obviously stunned and delighted @crowmedicine’s Ketch Secor a fiddle Roy Acuff has given Woody when he was 16.
Today at #TatteredLoDo , 2:00 pm, Ketch Secor is presenting his first children's book LORRAINE, an epic Americana story about the power of music and family.
Secor is a Grammy award-winning musician and founder of Old Crow Medicine Show! We will have a MUSICAL INSTRUMENT PETTINF ZOO for the kiddos! Check out this awesome didgeridoo 😂

This dynamic duo created an epic story that showcases the power of music and family.
Another wonderful treat this week... being read to by the author and meeting the illustrator of the gorgeous children’s book, Lorraine, The Girl Who Sang the Storm Away, was an extra special day. The author is Ketch Secor of Old Crow Medicine Show. The illustrator is famed Barbara Higgins Bond, illustrator of over 40 books and the first African American Artist to illustrate a US postage Stamp, as well as many other firsts. They are an amazing team. They will be at Parnassus and the Hall of Fame this week... don’t miss this sweet opportunity to hear and meet them and grab an autographed beautiful book about a Tennessee girl. #authorsrock#illustratorsrock#blessed#thankful#oldcrowmedicineshow#ketchsecor#higginsbond#lorrainethegirlwhosangthestormaway#childrensbooks#werkperks 👌🏼

I made a last minute decision to hop in my car and drive 12 hours East all by my lonesome to see my most favorite band, @crowmedicine play at the @tabernacleatl in #atlanta last night and hoo baby I gotta tell ya, it was worth every hour of that drive. It was quick; I'm already back home in Texas and covered in donkey dust (as is par for my course).
I love winding, foggy highways with the company of only my own imagination, especially with a destination where I knew I would be able to just let myself be so perfectly in the moment with ease. To me, Old Crow is soul replenishing: sun breaking through the clouds when it's been raining for far too long. They are pure, unadulterated presence and some serious, raw, and wonderful badassery.
I'm sure once I've slept more than an hour, I'll write more on my adventure, but for now in my glossy post-roadtrip daze, I want to thank Old Crow from the bottom of my worn out heart for the sensational show. I'm just over the moon ❤️
“I enjoy writing songs that could have been written before [my time]. When I feel like I'm tapping into a deep vein in the body of American music, it gives me strength as a writer, like I'm dipping my pen into a deep ink well. That's the folk music tradition. Like Pete Seeger said, 'Everyone's a link in the chain.' It's a strong chain, so rely on it. ... I believe it takes all those great songs in the past to make your song even a little bit good.” ~Ketch Secor.
I couldn’t agree more. New York, New York! Had a fantastic first day in the city which started off with an amazing rehearsal. So lucky to get to play a gig here with such talented musicians. This Wednesday, April 18 come join us at Paddy Reilly’s Music Bar, 8pm.
