Fuqua, who founded Old Crow Medicine Show in 1998 tells Rolling Stone, “Leaving Old Crow is one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make. These men that I’ve played with for 21 years are not only bandmates but dear, dear friends, brothers in arms.

“Old Crow is more than a band, it’s a spiritual being with many entities that have flowed through it since its inception in 1998. It’s my path that I flow out again, but all the folks that have played with Old Crow, worked with Old Crow, managed Old Crow, booked Old Crow, and loved Old Crow will always be family. Family is eternal.”

Fuqua’s departure follows a series of lineup changes for the band. Guitarist Chance McCoy left in early 2019, and singer-songwriter Charlie Worsham and drummer Jerry Pentecost have joined as part-time members.
