Great Quotations: Old Crow Medicine Show On Bob Dylan And Country Music

“Country music has a lot to learn form Bob Dylan. Country music has learned a lot from Bob Dylan already. Bob Dylan might be the most important country music maker in the 20th century. He may be the most influential country musician. But we don’t know it. We think it’s Hank [Williams Sr.].He’s America’s master songwriter. Country is reliant on song, much more so than other genres. It’s all about the song in Nashville, so it’s all about Bob Dylan. Because Bob Dylan taught us how to write songs. He taught the great songwriters — Jon Prine, Kris Kristofferson, how to write songs.”
