Episode Title: 
Season 3 Premiere: Old Crow Medicine Show

Taped 333-feet below ground within the majestic Volcano Room deep inside Tennessee’s Cumberland Caverns, this 12-part “musical adventure” series features both well-established and emerging artists within the broad spectrum of bluegrass, jamgrass, roots and Americana genres.Artists in season three include Old Crow Medicine Show, Andrew Bird, Yonder Mountain String Band, Ben Sollee, the SteelDrivers, Johnnyswim, BeauSoleil, Leon Russell, North Mississippi Allstars, the Wood Brothers, Alison Brown Quartet, and the Infamous Stringdusters.

Few bands in recent memory have done as much to bring new audiences and young fans to bluegrass/old-time music as the atomic-powered string band OCMS. But frontman Ketch Secor’s fine original songs, including the gold-certified hit “Wagon Wheel,” and the band’s solid musical chops please more traditional fans, as well. Add in a stage show equivalent of a moonshine-Red Bull highball and you have the makings of a great night in the cave and one incendiary half-hour of television.
