Why, After More Than a Decade, Does America Still Play Wagon Wheel During Weekend Nights

A classic old country tune is unrivaled, right? Wagon Wheel is one of the best examples of an enduringly popular country song of all time. Bob Dylan and Ketch Secor of the Old Crow Medicine Show co-wrote the song. It tells the story of a guy who, in spite of all obstacles and difficulties, always manages to return to the one he loves. 

Since its inclusion in Old Crow Medicine Show‘s big label debut, O.C.M.S., in 2004, it has gained enormous popularity. The band then made the decision to release the masterpiece of a music video in 2006.

The song continues to receive a lot of love and attention today because it leaves listeners with an out-of-this-world sense. Because of this, it has received 74 million views on YouTube even 16 years after its debut.

Wagon Wheel presently has three versions due to its popularity. The most well-known rendition, however, is by Hootie & The Blowfish’s Darius Rucker, whose 2013 cover of “Wagon Wheel” became a big success, topping the country charts and even reaching number 15 on the Billboard Hot 100. 

Despite the fact that Old Crow Medicine Show is the original recording, due to how widely known Rucker’s version is, many people mistakenly believe that he is the song’s original writer.

Even a Grammy was awarded to Darius Rucker for his rendition of the song. His cover of “Wagon Wheel” earned eight times as much platinum. Having said that, if you’re seeking for something to play during late-night drinks, you may listen to the song right now by clicking here.
