* CoverVersion: Besides covering country and older folk standards (both traditional ones and ones with identifiable authors like Music/WoodyGuthrie), they also like covering folk songs by '60s artists (they've done a number of well-recieved covers of Music/BobDylan songs, and did a famous rendition of Music/TheBand's "The Weight" with Music/GillianWelch).

'''Old Crow Medicine Show''' is not a MedicineShow. Known as "Old Crow" or "OCMS" to its friends, it is a band formed in 1998 with origins in Harrisonburg, Virginia and [[UsefulNotes/NewYorkState Ithaca, New York]], noted for playing "old-time" music: a kind of music intentionally evocative of American FolkMusic in the late 19th-early 20th century; they've also been classified as playing AlternativeCountry, Folk, and {{Bluegrass}} (a style so close to "old-time" as to be indistinguishable). They came to national prominence playing on ''Radio/APrairieHomeCompanion''. Today, they are one of the biggest bluegrass/old-time/etc bands in the US, and are credited with single-handedly starting a revival in old-time music.

* OdeToIntoxication: Most of their albums contain at least one song about drugs and/or corn liquor. Case in point, "Tell It To Me" and "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Cocaine Habit]]."

The similarity between "Tell It To Me" and "Cocaine Habit" is actually lampshaded (or something) on the album version of "Cocaine Habit," as Secor initially started into "Tell It To Me" before realizing the mistake (or pretending to) and launching into the song.

** There's a semi-exception in "I Hear Them All," which under the influence of David Rawlings has some references to then-recent events, but really could have been written any time.

* IntercourseWithYou[=/=]DoubleEntendre: "New Virginia Creeper." The ''Virginia Creeper'' is an old nickname for the Virginia-Carolina Railroad. "I'll ride you in my sleeper on the New Virginia Creeper tonight," indeed! And it gets ''bawdier'' after that. (The song was written by Harrisonburg, VA natives Secor and Fuqua).
