Old Dominion Play 2 Sold Out Shows at NYC’s Joe’s Pub

Even if you haven’t heard of rising country band Old Dominion, chances are you’ve heard a track or two that one of the members have written.   Does “Say You Do?”  ring a bell?  Or “Ex To See?”  Old Dominion is Matthew Ramsey (Lead Vocals, Guitar); Brad Tursi (Lead Guitar, Vocals); Trever Rosen (Guitar, Keys, Vocals); Geoff Sprung (Bass, Vocals); and Whit Sellers (Drums).   They’ve written for Dierks Bentley, Tyler Farr, Sam Hunt, The Band Perry, Dustin Lynch … and that’s just to name a few.   Their own single, “Break Up With Him,” has been slowly climbing the charts and dominating Sirius XM’s “The Highway” countdown.

“The Highway” hosted two back to back sold out shows with Old Dominion at Joe’s Pub last night.  We’re glad we got to experience the band live before they move onto bigger venues – like oh,  Met Life Stadium in NJ?   They’ll be playing there in August, opening up for Jason Aldean and Kenny Chesney on their Summer tour.

We’ve heard people ask what’s happened to rock music?  Well if you’re looking for it, country music is a good place to start.  Old Dominion is a country act, but they sure know how to rock.  Their set included a mix of material they have written for other artists, and tracks off of their EP, released earlier this month.  The band is incredibly energetic and fun to watch live, interacting with audience members and each other.  It’s nice to see a full country band as well, with each member bringing something different to the table.

The Friday Five: The Music of Hart Of Dixie

While The CW’s “Hart of Dixie” hasn’t officially been canceled, the show’s creator and actors have already posted their goodbyes on social media, making it seem like this is the end.  We’re going to miss this show, with it’s wonderful cast of characters, and the music.  “Hart of Dixie” definitely helped contribute to our new found love of country music, with a soundtrack filled with everyone from Dierks Bentley to Thomas Rhett to Hunter Hayes, perfect for the show’s small-town Alabama setting.  The show even brought in quite a few country guest stars during its run.  Here are some of “Hart of Dixie’s” most memorable musical moments!

The “Hart of Dixie” finale airs tonight at 8pm on The CW.

1. Danielle Bradbery
When she released a track called “The Heart of Dixie,” it was pretty much a given that she’d show up in Bluebell.

2. Gloriana
We’re still impressed with how Wade and Lemon got the band to perform at the Rammer Jammer.

3. Logan Mize
The “Can’t Get Away From A Good Time” singer was a guest star on the show before signing with Sony last year.

4. Jamestown Revival
Their appearance in last week’s episode was one of many moments during the show that had us Shazam-ing or Googling song lyrics to find out what song was playing.

5. George Tucker
We love that George Tucker, Renaissance Man, is heading to Nashville.  If music management doesn’t work out, you can always sing!  And hey Scott Porter, if you want to release a country album, we’d fully support that!
