Country Music Sensation ‘Old Dominion’ On The ‘Key’ To Success

Published

on

There are many musicians who perform at hundreds of open mics, and it still never works out for them. The lucky ones are discovered, and their lives are changed forever. But for the country music group Old Dominion, group members are quick to say it’s a combination of many things that make someone a star.

Their Rise To Fame

Old Dominion formed in 2007, but it took them eight years to rise to fame in 2015 with the country music group’s smash hit, “Break Up With Him.” Fans fell in love with the group’s “catchy” tunes.

But it wasn’t until 2017 when the band released two number-one hits: “No Such Thing as a Broken Heart” and “Written in the Sand.” It was because of these songs that awarded the group Vocal Group of the Year at the 2018 Academy of Country Music Awards.

The country group sensation gained even more popularity with the 2018 hit “Hotel Key.” Some would say Old Dominion has the “key” to success and it was pure luck, but the group members—Matthew Ramsey, Trevor Rosen, Brad Tursi, Geoff Sprung, and Whit Sellers—would beg to differ.

All About Hard Work

It’s all about hard work, not luck. Old Dominion is a testament to how you can achieve your dreams if you simply work hard, especially true with the band’s newest single, “Make It Sweet.” The song is already a hit.

“The truth is, we’re having the time of our lives. We’re in a band with our buddies and we’re succeeding at everything we worked really hard for,” Ramsey said of the band’s unexpected success.

The Key To Success

Old Dominion Frontman Ramsey recently shared the key ingredients to the group’s once-in-a-lifetime success. You need to find inspiration in your songwriting, make a song universal to all audiences, and figure out the right melodies. But the most important key to success is to keep your audience guessing.

And even though Old Dominion is one of the biggest groups in country music right now, Ramsey comments they still have to work just as hard as ever.

“You can never really know if a song is gonna be a hit or not,” he said. “You just put your best guess out there and hope it connects.”
