Old Dominion experiences a "snapback" with new single

Monday, January 11, 2016 – Following the success of "Break Up With Him," Old Dominion is back at radio with its second single, "Snapback."

The band reported today that 126 first week chart reporting country radio stations across the country are now spinning the single off the group's debut CD, "Meat and Candy." "Break Up With Him" had 76 chart reporting country radio stations spinning it the first week

"Picking a second single was kind of nerve-wracking," said lead singer Matthew Ramsey. "We felt like 'Snapback' was the right choice, but it's really just a guess. You never know what's going to connect. The overwhelming support radio and the fans have shown for 'Snapback' right out of the gate is something we never saw coming. Now it really feels like we made the right choice."

In February of 2015 the band signed to RCA Records Nashville. Old Dominion performed almost 200 shows including an 18-city stadium tour with Kenny Chesney on the Big Revival Tour last year. The group of hit songwriters will join Chesney again this summer on tour along with Miranda Lambert and Sam Hunt.

Chesney, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, The Band Perry and Chris Young have recorded songs penned by Old Dominion members.

Happy Endings CD review - Happy Endings

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.

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 »»»
