For Old Dominion, "Some People Do"

Friday, May 3, 2019 – Old Dominion released a new single, "Some People Do," today.

The soul-baring track about redemption and second chances presumably will be on the band's next release. The song follows the current single "Make It Sweet," which went number one earlier this week on the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase charts.

Old Dominion front man Matthew Ramsey said, "We pushed ourselves to be more raw and vulnerable with our songwriting on this album. It's a side of us we haven't shown as blatantly on our other projects. 'Some People Do' is very emotional and personal. Quite honestly, it's a little scary to put out into the world. But in the end, part of our job as songwriters is to tell the truth, even if it's hard to go there."

The band returns to Nashville tonight with a sold-out performance at Ascend Amphitheater. Make it Sweet tour dates are:

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: Stapleton shows his traditional roots – Chris Stapleton's All-American Road show feels like a singular mission to rid the genre of the bro country scourge that has plagued it for years. He came out with a blazing one-two punch of "Second One To Know" and "Without Your Love" and packed a stadium sized onslaught into a 9,000-seat arena. He never once veered from his... »»»
Concert Review: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones – Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before. It seemed like Jinks has made a lot of musical inroads into the public's consciousness because roughly three quarters of the audience raised their hands to show that this was their first time. That probably made Jinks feel pretty darn good about how life has been... »»»
