Dubbed “Deceptively smart” and “infectious” by Entertainment Weekly, Reining ACM New Group of the Year Invited to Perform Latest No. 1 Single, “Song For Another Time”
Reigning ACM New Group of the Year, Old Dominion, will perform their latest No. 1 “Song For Another Time” off their debut album for RCA Nashville, Meat And Candy, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Friday, January 20.
“Song For Another Time,” “an anthemic number that name-checks generations of popular odes to getting caught up in the moment” is, as NPR’s Jewly Hight puts it, “a songbook populated by Neil Diamond and Tom Petty, Van Morrison and John Mellencamp, George Strait and Katy Perry,” Hight adds, “that’s the lineage Old Dominion wants to claim.” The single follows multi-week No. 1 Platinum-selling debut single “Break Up With Him” and RIAA certified-Gold Top 5 “Snapback.”
“‘Song For Another Time’ had been such a big song for us and has opened so many doors for us,” said Old Dominion lead singer, Matthew Ramsey. “We are so excited to perform it on Ellen; 2017 is off to an amazing start.”
With two years of solid touring finally affording them the opportunity, the band’s debut Ellen performance comes just weeks after wrapping their first headlining tour, which boasted sold-out shows in New York, L.A., Chicago, Boston and dozens more. The road-built band, known for putting its fans first, surprised Nashville with a free pop-up show last week (Jan. 12) to thank its fans for an incredible year filled with ACM, Music Row, AIMP and ACCA awards recognition.
Later this month, Old Dominion will join Miranda Lambert on her Highway Vagabond tour. Until then, the band is rehearsing before they hit the road and can be found in studio with GRAMMY Award-winning producer, Shane McAnally, (producer of Meat and Candy) working on its forthcoming follow-up album due later this year.

About Old Dominion:
Proving that they are not your average country band, Old Dominion blends old-fashioned country charm, lyrical wit and rock n’ roll grit into radio-friendly, hook-heavy pop nuggets. Old Dominion has emerged as one of the hottest breaking bands in country music, fusing clever lyrics and an infectious sound. The band released its first full-length album Meat and Candy, which was recently named RIAA-certified GOLD and called “deceptively smart, occasionally cheeky, stellar debut,” by Entertainment Weekly. 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 hit No. 1 on Billboard and MediaBase on Dec. 12, 2016. They spent their summer on Kenny Chesney’s Spread The Love Tour and just wrapped their headlining Meat and Candy Fall Tour in December 2016. Fifteen of the dates were tapped as Stagecoach Spotlight: Old Dominion Meat and Candy Tour; the first-ever tour produced by the award-winning Stagecoach Music Festival. Old Dominion will soon join Miranda Lambert on her Highway Vagabond Tour. In 2016, the band was named ACM New Group of the Year, ACCA Breakthrough Group of the Year, AIMP Songwriter-Artist of the Year and Music Row Breakthrough Artist of the Year. Old Dominion consists of lead singer Matthew Ramsey, lead guitarist Brad Tursi, multi-instrumentalist Trevor Rosen, bassist Geoff Sprung and drummer Whit Sellers.
