About “I Hear Them All”
Old Crow Medicine Show‘s “I Hear Them All” sparks meaningful interpretations, with others calling it a song of political protest or a song with biblical understandings among its listeners.
The six-man string group captivated the listeners through their song lyrics about history recorded through music. Music keeps records of history, be it biblical or non-biblical, or current events, stories, or acts.
“I Hear Them All” is one of Old Crow Medicine Show’s songs characterized by an upbeat tempo. Although the lyrics somehow talk about a more profound topic. The music somehow takes you back to the retro times of country music, where the strings are heavily emphasized and easily noticed. The harmonica can be distinctly heard in some parts of the music, and the strings in the background did perfect justice to the country music genre.
The group’s music video is already at 5.9 million views on YouTube. It was directed by Danny Clinch and was nominated in the Wide Open Country category by the CMT Music Awards.
