Chance McCoy, a native West Virginian, was known as a traditional music phenom before joining Old Crow Medicine Show best known for their now ubiquitous hit song “Wagon Wheel” which was certified platinum this year. Previous to joining Old Crow McCoy had racked up an impressive roster of awards including 1st place honors in the West Virginia Fiddle, Banjo and Dulcimer championships held at the Vandalia Gathering and was gaining a reputation as a local musical hero before moving to Nashville. In 2012 Chance joined Old Crow Medicine Show on a sold out world tour in support of the album “Carry Me Back” which reached #22 on the top 40 Billboard Chart as well as # 1 in both the Bluegrass and Folk Billboard Charts.
In a special musical appearance McCoy is set to return to West Virginia this Thanksgiving weekend to sit in with some of his close musical collaborators from the area, including Charlie Hatcher, Corey Lee McQuade, Paul Johnson and the Hitzig Brothers for two impromptu shows. They will be performing live at Cantrell’s in Fayetteville on Nov. 29 at 9 p.m. and at The Sweet Shoppe in Lewisburg on Nov. 30 at 9 p.m.
