OLD DOMINION: “SONGWRITER-DRIVEN, ROAD-TESTED”
“Music has the power to heal, motivate, empower, unite, and improve lives, and tonight, all those things converge,” shared lead singer Matthew Ramsey before thanking the assembled fans for their contribution to such an incredible organization. “Chicago fans have supported us from the first time we played Joe’s on Weed in March 2014; I think I even recognize a few of you from that first night. We cannot thank you enough for helping us get to this point in our careers.”
Old Dominion, who is nominated for New Vocal Group/Duo of the Year as well as Vocal Group of the Year at the 51st ACM Awards, is currently watching their Top 15 single “Snapback” climb the charts at double the speed their two-week No. 1, “Break Up With Him,” raced to its peak. The single, whose new music video captures the very zeitgeist of today’s eclectic music lover and features professional skateboarder Leticia Bufoni, premiered earlier this week.
The five-piece band, consisting of Matthew Ramsey, Trevor Rosen, Geoff Sprung, Brad Tursi and Whit Sellers, which Rolling Stone Country notes is “building on the country-band blueprint set by the likes of Alabama and adding some fuzzy guitars, catchy licks and even a little rap that shoots for stadiums, not saloons” is headlining their Meat and Candy Tour, selling out shows throughout the country. On April 23, they will join Kenny Chesney on the road for his 2016 tour for the second year in a row.
