Blending old-fashioned country charm, lyrical wit and rock n’ roll grit into radio-friendly hook-heavy pop nuggets, Old Dominion have emerged as one of the hottest breaking bands in country music. Their gut-punch of a new self-titled EP, which Rolling Stone Country says is dashed with “fuzzy guitars, catchy licks and even a little rap” is highlighted by the back porch smack of undeniable single “Break Up With Him” and the bruising “Shut Me Up,” and is the product of the five-piece band, which includes singer Matthew Ramsey, lead guitarist Brad Tursi, multi-instrumentalist Trevor Rosen, bassist Geoff Sprung and drummer Whit Sellers. They’ve spent seven years honing their craft, each making a name for themselves in Nashville by penning songs for the likes of Keith Urban and Luke Bryan. Now it’s nothing less than the country rock outfit’s defining moment. Old Dominion, which Standard Examiner calls “the definition of country music’s ‘do-it-yourself’ band,” will join Kenny Chesney’s The Big Revival Tour for 17 stadium performances in 2015.
