Bob Dylan Gets CMA Nomination

Music Legend Bob Dylan has landed a CMA nomination! The 72 year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer is the oldest artist nominated this year, thanks to his classic ‘Wagon Wheel.’

‘Wagon Wheel’ was the original idea of Bob Dylan. Ketch Secor of the Old Crow Medicine Show finished the unreleased and unfinished composition and created an instant bar room classic in 2004, when his band officially released the sing-a-long. Then, in 2012, Darius Rucker re-recorded the song and made it a mainstream hit on the Country Music charts, with the help of Lady Antebellum.

The success of the song has landed a nomination for Single and Song of the Year at the 2013 CMA Awards. If the tune wins in the Song of the Year category, the award will go to the songwriters, Bob Dylan and Old Crow Medicine Show’s Ketch Secor.
