Old Dominion drops new single

Sunday, February 3, 2002 – Old Dominion just released a new single, "Some People Do," which is off the group's self-titled and third album.

Old Dominion front man Matthew Ramsey said, "It's a breaking-point kind of song. I think inherently we're all good people and want to be good people, but no matter who you are, sometimes you hurt the ones you love. It's about that desire to be the best person you can be for those people."

The group's latest number one hit single, "One Man Band" went Platinum and was Old Dominion's eighth straight chart topper.

Old Dominion recently announced a U.S. leg of their We Are Old Dominion tour with 13 cities and support from Dustin Lynch and Carly Pearce. Later this week, the band will make their return to Canada for the Canadian run with Mitchell Tenpenny and Meghan Patrick. This summer, the Old Dominion is also set to join Kenny Chesney on his Chillaxification 2020 stadium tour which will see them hitting stadiums across the nation as well as performances at several fairs and festivals.

Happy Endings CD review - Happy Endings

Nevertheless, the vocal-only harmonies introducing "Not Everything's About You," are a beautiful thing. »»»
