  • Summary: The seventh album for the Tennessee-based folk band was produced by Don Was.

  1. Positive: 7 out of 8

  1. OCMS's scrappy, fervent playing--live, the band is a mesmerizing mess of strings and sweat--reinvents old-time for a whole new generation.
  2. Their last album was dominated by well-worn oldies and sounded too safe. But here they match their bluegrass and country roots with a fine set of their own songs.
  3. 80
    Tennessee Pusher is comfortably up to standard, the demented Dylan pastiche, 'Alabama High-Test' a particular highlight. [Oct 2008, p.101]
  4. OCMS' rollicking fiddle sawing, guitjo picking and harmonica huffing will appeal to jam-band fans and Prairie Home Companion listeners alike, and there's a deadpan charm to singers Secor and Kevin Hayes.
  5. Not that Tennessee Pusher is a huge fall off from "Big Iron World," it's just not a great leap forward and upward, although there are plenty of striking tracks.
  6. Tennessee Pusher suggests that--for Old Crow Medicine Show--thoughtful evolution might be less vital than intelligent design and the re-creation of the band’s traditionalist roots.
  7. Tennessee Pusher pushes their envelope further still. [Oct 2008, p.149]
