Proving that they are not your average country band, Old Dominion, blends old-fashioned country charm, lyrical wit and rock n' roll grit into radio-friendly, hook-heavy pop nuggets. The band has emerged as one of the hottest breaking bands in country music, fusing clever lyrics and an infectious sound. Old Dominion recently released their highly anticipated sophomore album, Happy Endings, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart & #7 on the Top 200 and were nominated for two CMA nominations for “New Artist of the Year” and “Vocal Group of the Year.”
Old Dominions new single, “Written In The Sand,” follows the success of the first single off of the album “No Such Thing As A Broken Heart,” which hit #1 on Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase charts. The band released their first full length album Meat and Candy, which was certified GOLD by the RIAA and hailed a "stellar debut "by Entertainment Weekly and declared "one of the hottest breaking bands in county music" by Vice. The group already has several top selling singles under their belts, including the two-week No.1 "Break Up With Him" (PLATINUM), "Snapback" (GOLD) and "Song For Another Time," which hit No. 1 the on Billboard Country Airplay and MediaBase charts. In 2016, the band was notably named ACM New Group of the Year, ACCA Breakthrough Group of the Year, AIMP Songwriter Artist of the Year and Music Row Breakthrough Artist of the Year.
Old Dominion consists of lead singer Matthew Ramsey, lead guitarist Brad Tursi, multi-instrumentalist Trevor Rosen, bassist Geoff Sprung and drummer Whit Sellers.
Country fans are no strangers to the uncanny musical connection of a family band, but they’ve never heard anything like the duo High Valley – and that’s simply because brothers Brad and Curtis Rempel never knew how country was “supposed” to sound. Growing up in La Crete, Alberta — more than 2,500 miles from where they now live in Music City —Brad and Curtis were completely cut off from the world of pop culture throughout their early lives.
High Valley learned to become skilled digital citizens, building an avid fan base that is actively involved in selecting the duo’s songs through the High Valley app and connecting with each other via social media. As a result, they have amassed more than 43 million song streams worldwide – including 22 million for first single “Make You Mine.” The band has been selected for “Ones to Watch” recognition by Rolling Stone Country, Spotify, Pandora, CMT and Taste of Country. The Rempel brothers have already scored six Top 10s, three Gold certifications, played to 15,000 seat arenas opening for Shania Twain and earned multiple awards show wins – including Canadian CMA Group of the Year.
Their calling is a strong one – to bring positive and original family-friendly energy back to the country landscape – and they’re following it with passion.
