Old Dominion has seen over a decade of success together and built a very loyal fanbase in the process, but they admit the fear of losing all they have accomplished still lingers in the back of their minds from time to time. Luckily, they continue to be assured through their listeners and by the surplus of accolades they have compiled. 

Tonight, the group could claim yet another set of trophies as they are nominated for ACM Group of the Year as well as Music Event of the Year for their single “Can’t Break Up Now” with ACM New Female Artist of the Year, Megan Moroney

“As artists, we have that insecurity built into us. You’re always questioning and overthinking and wondering if you’re making the right choices. It’s just a really beautiful thing to be recognized for your choices and honored for that,” said the band’s lead singer, Matt Ramsey.

The Group Reflects On Seeing The Song Rise Up The Charts

The dramatic tune penned by Trevor Rosen, Matt Ramsey, Tofer Brown and Emily Weisband was shipped to country radio on August 18 and continues to move its way up the charts.

“We wrote the song a long time ago. We’ve been hanging onto it waiting for the right partner and she showed up and said yes. So it’s been a really cool journey to watch her as a solo artist kind of blow up and then be a part of our song and watching it climb. It’s always very exciting when something starts to catch on and it’s really cool to hear people singing it back to us,” shared Brad Tursi.

Old Dominion hinted that they are preparing to enter their next chapter of music as they have some “new bangers lined up” and are already planning their next major headline tour.
