– [Group] Hi, we’re
Old Crow Medicine Show. – And you’re watching,
PBS Kids Rocks, behind the scenes. (folk music) – [Man] Three, Two, One. ♪ When I go out
with my allowance ♪ ♪ I don’t spend it all at once ♪ ♪ Not on whiffle balls
or rubber snakes ♪ ♪ On pumpkin pie
or chocolate cake ♪ ♪ I slip it in my piggy bank ♪ ♪ Then count out every dime ♪ ♪ I can tell it all adds up ♪ ♪ I’ve got a mathematic mind ♪ – This project is been
so meaningful for us. A lot of our fans have kids now, so it’s really part of
other people’s families. And our audience is, it’s part
of their kid’s families now. ♪ My lucky stars I got
a mathematic mind ♪ ♪ I’ve got a mathematic mind ♪ ♪ I use math all the time ♪ – Gosh, why wouldn’t you
wanna make music for PBS kids? – Right.
– It’s one of the coolest programs to get to be apart of. – PBS for me growing up was my window into a world that
was outside my neighborhood. I remember sitting at home learning about kindness
and mindfulness from Mr. Rogers, learning
about counting from the Count. – The one I remember is.. one, two, three, four, five,
six, seven, eight, nine, 10, 11, 12.
– 10, 11, 12 – We’re kinda young at heart,
if you haven’t noticed. ♪ Mathematic mind ♪ (clapping) – Yeah! – I’ll kinda ham it up with him. – Yeah, yeah. – Throw it back to the camera.
– Either play it together or– – When Old Crow writes a song we think about traditions in country music that
we’re drawing from, and in rock & roll,
and in the blues. And then we make
our own kinda story. When we’re writing
songs for PBS Kids, we’ve been given an assignment, write a song about
the concept of zero. ♪ Stick me by you’re
favorite number ♪ ♪ And I’ll take you to the top ♪ ♪ That’s not to shabby ♪ ♪ No ♪ ♪ I’m worth a lot
more than they say ♪ ♪ Cause when it all adds up ♪ ♪ A little zero goes
a long, long way ♪ – So we wrote a song about
a little zero (laughing). It was so fun. – Five, four, three, two, one. (folk music) ♪ Oh I’m just a little zero ♪ ♪ Going nowhere by myself ♪ ♪ I’m just an empty circle ♪ ♪ Who needs a little help ♪ – Zero’s got the blues. He’s empty inside. But he’s infinite
at the same time. – We always loved the
underdog in this band, and in many ways we
kinda are the underdog. We just probably shouldn’t of
made it in the music business. – We’re the zero’s. Nashville’s full of big numbers, that we were put next to. ♪ Zero is the hero of the hour ♪ ♪ Whoever thought that
I had this kinda power ♪ ♪ I’m not just a little zero ♪ ♪ So come give me a shot ♪ ♪ Stick my by your
favorite number ♪ ♪ And I’ll take you to the top ♪ ♪ That’s not to shabby ♪ ♪ No ♪ ♪ I’m worth a lot
more than they say ♪ ♪ Cause when it all adds up ♪ ♪ A little zero goes
a long, long way ♪ (folk music) – [Director] Cut! Yeah! – [Narrator] Check out
