NASHVILLE, TN, FEBRUARY 19, 2020 – Country music newcomer, Joe Lasher, followed up the release of his latest single “Messed Up” with a cinematic music video that premiered on CMT.com. Directed by Ford Fairchild, the video’s storyline depicts that all-consuming feeling that a breakup has on everyday life by using quick cuts to flashbacks of better times as Joe, who plays the lead character, recounts his past relationship. Ultimately, before the closing scene of the video, Joe finds himself in his local bar full of emotions where he spots his former love interest with a new mystery man, before heading off alone and heartbroken into the darkness of the night.
Now how on earth did Old Dominion manage to make a story so naughty sound so nice? Hotel Key is their latest single and it’s just in time for the heat of the summer! Give it a listen and let us know what you think!
FROM PLAYING HOUSE PARTIES TO COUNTRY’S BIGGEST STAGE OLD DOMINION RETURNS WITH A PERFORMANCE ON THE “52nd ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS™” LIVE FROM T-MOBILE ARENA IN LAS VEGAS, SUNDAY, APRIL 2 ON CBS It’s been a long road from playing house parties for pocket change to performing on the “52nd ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS™”, but Old Dominion, 2016’s ACM New Vocal Group of the Year and a 2017 nominee for Vocal Group of the Year, is ready. On Sunday, April 2, live from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, the five-piece band of songwriters returns with a performance of their new single, “No Such Thing As A Broken Heart,” on this year’s show airing on CBS . “Last year our performance was 90 seconds,” says Old Dominion lead singer Matthew Ramsey. “It was over in a flash. We walked off stage and I got a little wobbly-kneed as it all sank in,” he adds, recalling their first big break. “Winning the trophy for New Group our first year out was such an honor, but to be nominated for Vocal Group of the Year for a second time and have the opportunity to perform our new song, it really feels like we are on a new level. To be able to deliver the message of this song to an audience of this size means more than we can possibly express. It truly is a career high point.” Proving that they are not your average country band, Old Dominion combines old-fashioned country charm, lyrical wit and rock n’ roll grit into musical magic, and has emerged as one of the hottest breaking bands in the format, fusing clever lyrics and an infectious sound resulting in three Top 5 singles, including two No. 1s. They released their first full-length album Meat and Candy, which Entertainment Weekly called a “deceptively smart, occasionally cheeky, stellar debut,” in 2015. Success soon followed and Old Dominion released their Platinum two-week No.1 “Break Up With Him” and RIAA certified Gold hit “Snapback” prior to their third single “Song For Another Time,” which also reached the top chart position. The group released their new single, “No Such Thing As A Broken Heart,” on March 10, giving fans their first taste of new music from the band’s upcoming sophomore album expected for release later this year. After claiming the ACM New Vocal Group prize in 2016, they spent the summer on Kenny Chesney’s Spread The Love Tour and followed that with their headlining Meat and Candy Tour, with 15 of the dates tapped as Stagecoach Spotlight: Old Dominion Meat and Candy Tour; the first-ever tour produced by the award-winning Stagecoach Music Festival and celebrated sold-out attendance on all dates. In addition, they picked up additional nominations in 2016 for CMA New Artist and Vocal Group of the Year as well as Favorite Due or Group – Country for the 2016 American Music Awards. This spring, they joined Miranda Lambert on her Highway Vagabond Tour. Old Dominion consists of lead singer Matthew Ramsey, lead guitarist Brad Tursi, multi-instrumentalist Trevor Rosen, bassist Geoff Sprung and drummer Whit Sellers.

FIRST SINGLE FROM FORTHCOMING SOPHOMORE ALBUM HITS COUNTRY RADIO AIRWAVES RCA Nashville’s hitmakers and reigning ACM New Group of the Year, Old Dominion, releases new music today, March 10. The new single from 2017 ACM Group of the Year nominees, “No Such Thing as a Broken Heart,” arrives at Country radio, digital retail and streaming services today. Written by Old Dominion band members Matthew Ramsey, Trevor Rosen and Brad Tursi, as well as Jesse Frasure, the band again enlists GRAMMY Award-winner Shane McAnally, who produced Old Dominion’s debut album in 2015, the GOLD certified Meat and Candy, to produce “No Such Thing as a Broken Heart.” The new song is the first taste of new music from the band’s highly-anticipated forthcoming sophomore album. “No matter who you are, where you live or your current status, people both old and young face more challenges than ever,” says Old Dominion’s front man Matthew Ramsey. “It’s in the face of those challenges and standing at the edge of fear that we have to remain positive. Focus on the light that comes from positivity instead of being swallowed up. Work hard at doing what you feel is right. Don’t be scared!! Live life like there’s no such thing as a broken heart.” “No Such Thing as a Broken Heart” Lyrics I wonder if Jack and Diane ever made it After the drums and the guitars all faded Was the best they could do good enough Or did the heartland just swallow them up How did my mom and my dad ever do it If there were struggles then we never knew it I guess they had each other and that was enough CHORUS You know you can’t keep the ground from shaking No matter how hard you try You can’t keep the sunsets from fading Gotta treat your life like you’re jumping off a rope swing Cause the whole thing’s really just a shot in the dark Gotta love like there’s no such thing as a broken heart Yeah you gotta love like there’s no such thing as a broken heart What am I gonna tell my kids when they see All of this bullshit that goes down on TV When the whole world is down on it’s luck I gotta make sure they keep their chin up Cry when it hurts Laugh when its funny Chase after the dream Don’t chase after the money Know we got each other and that’s what’s up CHORUS Cause you can’t keep the ground from shaking No matter how hard you try You can’t keep the sunsets from fading Gotta treat your life like you’re jumping off a rope swing Cause the whole thing’s really just a shot in the dark Gotta love like there’s no such thing as a broken heart Yeah you gotta love like there’s no such thing as a broken heart Gotta love like there’s no such thing as a broken heart
With 180+ shows and RIAA Gold certified album, 2016 ACM New Vocal Group of the Year Wraps “on the cusp of superstardom” [Vice] NASHVILLE, Tenn. – In their First Listen feature, NPR dubbed Old Dominion’s Meat & Candy “first-rate craftsmanship,” yet it was the band’s ability to bring those songs to life in their live show that led to the five-piece being selected for a unique partnership on the touring front — and the first in history — with Stagecoach. Aligning with “the biggest country music gathering in the world” (Los Angeles Times), Stagecoach tapping Old Dominion as part of the inaugural Stagecoach Spotlight Tour was just one in a series of major firsts for the band in what has been a breakout year. The partnership was overwhelmingly successful with 15 of Old Dominion’s 33-dates, 28-states headlining Meat and Candy Tour stops co-branded with the festival powerhouse, all seeing the band playing to fully packed houses. “It’s been ridiculous,” shares Old Dominion’s frontman Matthew Ramsey. “To think of what all we have accomplished as a band… as performers, as songwriters… to connect on that level with so many fans, we’re just so thankful for what this year has brought.” Just last month the album Entertainment Weekly called “deceptively smart” and “infectious,” Meat & Candy, was officially RIAA Gold certified in part due to the success of their newly cemented No. 1, “Song For Another Time,” the second chart-topper off their critically-acclaimed major label debut album. With a 2016 show tally of 182 and over 60,000 fans rocked in North America on the Meat and Candy Tour alone (not including fans they played to on Kenny Chesney’s Spread The Love Tour), the band, comprised of lead singer Ramsey, lead guitarist Brad Tursi, multi-instrumentalist Trevor Rosen, bassist Geoff Sprung and drummer Whit Sellers, will kick-off 2017 joining Miranda Lambert on her Highway Vagabon Tour.

Old Dominion celebrate ACM Awards win and performance Last night, in Las Vegas, the 51st annual ACM Awards celebrated the last year of Country music. Among those taking home awards were Nashville’s underdog hit-makers turned Country’s next-big-thing. Old Dominion were awarded the New Vocal Group Of The Year accolade as well as being nominated for vocal group of the year alongside artists such as Zac Brown Band and winner Little Big Town. They were also invited to perform at the ceremony in front of the packed out audience of over 16,000 Country fans and 16.2 million viewers at home. It was a monumental moment for the band. ‘What an incredible few days… THANK YOU’ said the band. ‘We are blown away, this is another thing we didn’t expect to come our way. We are just completely lucky, we can’t believe it.’ It has been a huge year for Old Dominion. After writing hits behind-the-scenes for other artists this is the first time the Nashville 5-piece have been the stars of the show. Just to list a few of their achievements; they scooped a major-label contract (after a bidding war), released their debut album ‘Meat and Candy’, scored their first #1 as a band with hit single ‘Break Up With Him’, performed on prime-time US television including Jimmy Kimmel Live and completed a mammoth US stadium tour with Kenny Chesney. The band also took their first trip to the UK to perform at London’s C2C Festival, where their energetic sets at both Brooklyn Bowl and indigo2 were both widely considered highlights of the weekend. At their own headline show at London’s Hoxton Bar & Kitchen – much to Old Dominion’s surprise and joy – the packed out crowd were singing along to every word. The past year has propelled Old Dominion to heights they had only previously dreamed of. The near future includes further single releases, more touring and penning new songs. Before long their success could reach dizzying levels. Meat and Candy is out now.
