Old Dominion hopes to "Make It Sweet"

Monday, October 8, 2018 – Old Dominion shared a brand new single and announced its 2019 headlining arena tour, both entitled "Make It Sweet."

This marks the group's first new original release since the arrival of the chart-topping "Happy Endings" in summer 2017

Lead singer Matthew Ramsey said, "We walked into the studio one day without discussing what we wanted the next step for our band to be. The plan was to write a song and record it on that same day. What happened was something we could never have planned. The words fell out, and the next thing we knew, we had recorded 'Make It Sweet.' It's raw, natural and 100 percent us. We are so proud and grateful to have the opportunity to share such a meaningful moment for our band with the world."

Old Dominion will debut "Make It Sweet" on The Ellen DeGeneres Show October 16.

Old Dominion unveiled dates for the first leg of their 2019 Make It Sweet Tour. Jordan Davis, Morgan Evans and Mitchell Tenpenny will open show. The initial leg kicks off Jan. 18 in Chicago and wraps April 27 at San Jose Events Center in San Jose, Cal. More dates will be added.

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."

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 ...
