NOV. 30TH | MOHEGAN SUN ARENA
Old Dominion formed in Nashville, TN in 2007 but the band’s roots trace back to Virginia, the home state of four of its five members. Taking their moniker from Virginia’s nickname, Old Dominion started playing shows around Music City in the late ’00s as a way to showcase music some of its members had written for popular country artists like The Band Perry and Chris Young. They soon discovered a unique musical chemistry and began penning songs as a group, and in 2014 they released their self-titled debut EP to a Top 10 spot on Billboard’s Top Heatseekers chart. A year later they crowned the US Country Airplay chart with “Break Up With Him,” the lead single from their debut full-length Meat and Candy. The album itself was a surprise crossover hit, peaking at No. 3 on the Top Country Albums chart and cracking the Top 20 on the mainstream Billboard 200. Since then the band has wowed on tour with powerhouse performances that have fans eagerly awaiting their sophomore album.
Nashville-based country rockers Old Dominion hit the ground running in 2015 with their acclaimed debut album Meat and Candy, and followed up with boot-stomping sets on tour that proved their performance chops match their songwriting skills. Feel-good chart-toppers like “Break Up with Him” and “Snapback” practically beg to be sung along to, and fans are more than happy to accompany frontman Matthew Ramsey as he casts his heartwarming croon over the crowd. The rest of the band is a well-oiled machine, kicking out livewire bass, guitar, and drums that strike the perfect balance between country twang and rock and roll heft. Old Dominion’s potent brand of country rock is the perfect pick-me-up for ticket buyers hankering for the hottest new Nashville sounds.
