Old Dominion has done it again, and tonight will be going home with the Vocal Group of the Year award from the Country Music Association. With the evening in full swing, the band took the stage clearly in awe of the honor they’d been chosen for.
Frontman Matt Ramsey humbly took the mic and shared from the heart, “What an amazing thing we get to be apart of.” Reminiscing on the early days, he shared, “Anytime anything good would happen to us, we would look at each other and say, ‘This is never going to work anyways.’ But tonight, when I look out and think of all the people that have supported us and believed in us and pushed us and loved us….we should have been saying ‘of course it’s gonna work.’
Their family and loved ones watched from the audience with pride in their eyes. Ramsey closed their remarks, “Thank you to all of you that believed in us and keep pushing us. This is such an amazing thing to be a part of.”
With the release of their Make It Sweet album in 2018, the group has been busy touring the country, sharing their music with loyal fans and winning new ones along the way. Playing back to back shows from January to September.
Old Dominion was nominated for Vocal Group of the Year alongside Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Midland and Zac Brown Band.
