Old Dominion took the stage at The Basement in Nashville, Tenn. for a performance of their current single, “Never Be Sorry” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday (Jan. 11).
The performance was filmed at The Basement in partnership with Save Our Stages. The National Independent Venue Association Emergency Relief Fund (NIVA) is raising money for grants in hopes of enabling some of the most distressed independent venues to hold on until they can reopen safely.
“Never Be Sorry,” which is at country radio now, was co-written by Old Dominion‘s Matthew Ramsey, Brad Tursi and Trevor Rosen alongside frequent collaborators Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne.
“‘Never Be Sorry’ is about that, you know, unfortunate realization that people get to sometimes where your relationship just wasn’t what you thought it was and what it used to be. And, that’s a hard place to be and a sad place, frustrating place sometimes, but it’s also, you know, important to remember that you loved that person and you shouldn’t be apologetic for loving that person,” Ramsey explains of the track.
“And, maybe it didn’t work out. You know, like the songs says, you know, forever slips away from you sometimes. And, maybe that’s not what was in the cards, but you can’t be sorry for falling in love with that person. That’s what this song is about- remembering those details and those good parts that made that relationship unique and special and will keep it alive in some way forever in your heart.”
The band’s “Never Be Sorry” performance comes on the heels of Old Dominion’s first two GRAMMY nominations for their emotional song, “Some People Do.” Both tracks are featured on their self-titled third studio album.
