Old Dominion

What a year! Old Dominion began 2015 as “one of country music’s few current self-contained bands” (NPR) before signing with RCA Nashville in February of this year. Now, just 10 months later, they’re celebrating a two-week No. 1 debut single —joining the company of Zac Brown Band, Brooks & Dunn and Florida Georgia Line as the only brand new Duo/Group artists since 1990 to have a multiple-week No. 1 with their debut single. Selling out shows in Chicago, New York City, San Diego, Boston, Milwaukee and their upcoming show on Jan. 14 at Nashville’s Marathon Music Works, the band has been tapped for CRS 2016’s New Faces of Country Music Show and are poised for their debut morning television performance on Today Show Dec. 21.

Old Dominion, comprised of Matthew Ramsey, Geoff Sprung, Trevor Rosen, Brad Tursi and Whit Sellers, released their full-length album, Meat And Candy, produced by songwriter and GRAMMY-award winning producer, Shane McAnally, on Nov. 6. It features “Break Up With Him,” their two-week No. 1 debut single, the first that all five members of the band have written together.

“Now that we are the ones standing on stage night after night, making that connection with the audience, it takes it to a whole new level,” Ramsey recently shared with Forbes regarding the difference of having a No. 1 as an artist vs. as a songwriter.  “You can really feel the power of a song.”

Additionally, Old Dominion made the cut for the following five Billboard 2015 year-end lists: Top Country Artists, Hot Country Songs, Hot Country Songs Artists, Country Airplay Songs and Country Digital Songs.

About Old Dominion 
RCA Nashville recording act Old Dominion has been writing songs and honing its live show in Music City for 10 years. While many of the group’s songs have been recorded by top artists including Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, The Band Perry, Chris Young and more, the group is currently focused on performing its own brand of country stripped down and raw but muscular enough to fit in on today’s country radio. Their recent debut single “Break Up With Him” spent two weeks at No.1 on the Country charts and their follow-up single “Snapback” will hit Country radio on January 18, 2016.
