Old Crow Medicine Show released their rendition of “Wagon Wheel” in 2004. Their recording was certified Platinum by the RIAA in 2013.
“Wagon Wheel” has been covered many times since. Darius Rucker is responsible for recording one of the most recognizable versions.
Rucker’s rendition of “Wagon Wheel” was released in 2013. Lady A performs backing vocals on the track. The recording reached the #1 spot on both the Hot Country Songs chart and the Country Airplay chart.
This new version of “Wagon Wheel” was a massive hit. It went on to be certified 9x Platinum by the RIAA. It also led Rucker to a Grammy win in the Best Country Solo Performance category.
All of these years later, “Wagon Wheel” is just as popular as it ever was.
Old Crow Medicine Show recently revisited the tune during their appearance on CMT’s Campfire Sessions program. They weren’t alone either…Sara Evans sat down to join their performance.
CMT shared a video of Old Crow Medicine Show and Evans’ “Wagon Wheel” collaboration on social media. They captioned the clip, “Hey, Old Crow Medicine Show and Sara Evans, rock me.”
