For Old Dominion, there's "No Such Thing As a Broken Heart"

Friday, March 10, 2017 – Old Dominion released a new single day, "No Such Thing as a Broken Heart," which will appear on its second full length.

Penned by Old Dominion band members Matthew Ramsey, Trevor Rosen and Brad Tursi, as well as Jesse Frasure, Shane McAnally produced. He also produced the band's full-length debut, "Meat and Candy."

"No matter who you are, where you live or your current status, people both old and young face more challenges than ever," said front man Matthew Ramsey. "It's in the face of those challenges and standing at the edge of fear that we have to remain positive. Focus on the light that comes from positivity instead of being swallowed up. Work hard at doing what you feel is right. Don't be scared. Live life like there's no such thing as a broken heart."

Lyrics are:
I wonder if Jack and Diane ever made it
After the drums and the guitars all faded
Was the best they could do good enough
Or did the heartland just swallow them up
How did my mom and my dad ever do it
If there were struggles then we never knew it
I guess they had each other and that was enough

CHORUS
You know you can't keep the ground from shaking
No matter how hard you try
You can't keep the sunsets from fading
Gotta treat your life like you're jumping off a rope swing
Cause the whole thing's really just a shot in the dark
Gotta love like there's no such thing as a broken heart
Yeah you gotta love like there's no such thing as a broken heart
What am I gonna tell my kids when they see
All of this bullshit that goes down on TV
When the whole world is down on it's luck
I gotta make sure they keep their chin up
Cry when it hurts
Laugh when its funny
Chase after the dream
Don't chase after the money
Know we got each other and that's what's up

CHORUS
Cause you can't keep the ground from shaking
No matter how hard you try
You can't keep the sunsets from fading
Gotta treat your life like you're jumping off a rope swing
Cause the whole thing's really just a shot in the dark
Gotta love like there's no such thing as a broken heart
Yeah you gotta love like there's no such thing as a broken heart
Gotta love like there's no such thing as a broken heart. The group had hits on its debut with "Break Up With Him," "Snapback" and "Song for Another Time."

The band has been touring with Miranda Lambert on her current tour.

CD reviews for Old Dominion

Old Dominion CD review - Old Dominion
Old Dominion has gained a following on the heels of two albums of lively material. Their self-titled third release stays the course and delivers a dozen radio-friendly songs. The hyper positive lead single "Make it Sweet" sets the stage with an ode to the brighter side of everything. Most tracks are upbeat but, ironically, there is not an official party anthem or even a drinking song. The closest they get is "American Style," which is laden with standard innocent imagery »»»
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 »»»
