Christopher “Critter” Fuqua is ending his time with Old Crow Medicine Show. At the band's annual New Year’s Eve concert at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, the vocalist and multi-instrumentalist performed his last show as part of the country string band.
“Leaving Old Crow is one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make,” Fuqua told Rolling Stone. “These men that I’ve played with for 21 years are not only band mates but dear, dear friends, brothers in arms...Old Crow will always be family. Family is eternal.”
Fuqua co-founded the band in 1998 with singer and fiddle player Ketch Secor. Since then, the band has seen many lineup changes, including Fuqua’s first departure from the band in 2007. The group’s current lineup now includes Secor, Jerry Pentecost, Joe Andrews, Robert Price, Cory Younts, Morgan Jahnig, and Charlie Worsham.
