Old Dominion adds fall shows

Thursday, May 9, 2019 – Old Dominion add new dates and cities to its "Make It Sweet Tour."

The band booked more shows through the end of the year and early 2020 with openeers including Scotty McCreery (eight shows),Michael Ray (five dates), and Jordan Davis who has been added to the international run. Morgan Evans, Ryan Griffin and Ryan Hurd are set to open on select dates.

"I remember watching OD before they were even called that," Hurd said. "I've always looked up to them, first as songwriters and now as the premier band in our genre. I'm so excited about being a part of this tour and getting a chance to be with some great friends for the fall."

Last week, Old Dominion released a personal new song "Some People Do." The soul-baring track, which begs the listener for redemption and second chances, was released on the heels of the band's current single "Make It Sweet."

Old Dominion returned to Nashville last weekend with a sold-out performance at Ascend Amphitheater following their performance on the mainstage at Stagecoach Country Music Festival.

CD reviews for Old Dominion

Happy Endings CD review - Happy Endings
Right off the bat, the title of Old Dominion's album "Happy Endings" is far better than "Meat and Candy," its prior effort. ("Meat" in an album title? Really?) But also on an artistic level, OD's follow-up shows signs of growth. With that said, though, there's nothing on this new release as immediately catchy as "Snapback." Nevertheless, the vocal-only harmonies introducing "Not Everything's About You," are a beautiful thing. »»»
Meat and Candy CD review - Meat and Candy
Old Dominion may be releasing its full-length debut, but this quintet is not filled with newbies. Lead singer Matthew Ramsey co-wrote "Chainsaw" for The Band Perry and with band mate Trevor Rosen penned Craig Morgan's "Wake Up Lovin' You" and Dierks Bentley's "Say You Do." Rosen also co-wrote Chris Young's "Neon," Blake Shelton's "Sangria" and The Band Perry's "Better Dig Two," while Brad Tursi wrote Tyler »»»
Old Dominion EP CD review - Old Dominion EP
In 1970, Conway Twitty opened a song with the immortal lines, "Hello Darlin'/Nice to see you." In 2014, Old Dominion opened a song with the not-yet-immortal lines, "Hey girl/Wassup?" Such is the evolution of country. Based out of Nashville, Old Dominion has released its debut EP right when the lines between country and every other musical genre are at their blurriest. The band takes advantage, mixing in a dose of rap, pop and Southern rock over the course of the six songs. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Carlile takes her chances on feeling "Blue" – During a rare moment sitting at the piano and appropriately dressed in blue, Brandi Carlile paraphrased a memorable Joni Mitchell quote. Basically, it went that, if you listen to Joni Mitchell music and only picture Mitchell - but not yourself - something is wrong. While Carlile, who performed Mitchell's "Blue" album in its entirety for... »»»
Concert Review: Underwood keeps it world class – There are different levels of fame. There are quite a few artists who go by a mononym; no one asks "Sting or Bono "who?" And then there is an artist whose surname is used as a verb. Being "Underwooded" is a slang phrase used to describe car vandalism. That's American Idol's best-selling artist fame.... »»»
