Old Dominion Sign to RCA Nashville
Old Dominion are officially off the market. The five-man group, who released their self-titled EP in October, has inked a deal with RCA Nashville.
"We couldn't be more excited to join the RCA Nashville family," frontman Matt Ramsey says. "As a band, we are eager to start our next chapter and are grateful for the opportunity to do that with the support of an amazing promotion and marketing team in RCA."
Adds Sony Nashville CEO Gary Overton, "There has been a VERY loud buzz about Old Dominion around the Sony Music Nashville offices for some time now; so much that the three imprints were all fighting for the chance to work with the band."
The group is currently climbing the charts with "Break Up With Him," the latest single from their debut project. They will hit the road in May to serve as one of the opening acts on select dates on Kenny Chesney's 2015 Big Revival Tour, and band member Geoff Sprung says they'll be taking plenty of notes along the way.
"We’re excited to learn, just like we are every time we open for another artist," he tells The Boot. "We were out all fall with Chase Rice, and every show with another artist, we want to figure out what works for them, what makes them successful, and try to learn from it, so I don’t think this will be any different. I’m sure we’ll be side stage most nights, trying to figure out what all these different artists are doing to capture the attention of the audience, and then it kind of integrates in."
Old Dominion will play several solo shows before hitting the road with Chesney; they will also be joining the Eli Young Band for a few concerts as well. A complete list of dates can be found on their website.
