It’s All About “Meat and Candy” for Old Dominion


Touted as one of the most exciting new groups in Nashville on the heels of their first single “Break Up With Him,” Old Dominion will release their first album, Meat and Candy, on November 6. The RCA debut album was produced by GRAMMY Award-winning producer and songwriter, Shane McAnally.

“This is a HUGE moment for us! We are releasing our debut, major label full length album!” the band exclaims. “When we were kids sitting in our rooms with our guitars and Rolling Stone magazines, this is THE moment we were imagining for ourselves. As musicians and songwriters, we are very proud of every song on the album. We are looking to turn some heads and make some big noise here. We’re stepping out there on stage with the big boys and girls and our hope is that this album will prove we deserve to be there.”

While Old Dominion may be a new band, its members are all acclaimed songwriters, having written hits for the likes of Dierks Bentley, Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan and Sam Hunt.

Ty Herndon, Andy Griggs, & Jamie O’Neal announce 2015 tour

Well dang. I was hoping after Ty Herndon made his brave announcement on Thursday that he’s gay, he’d disappear and then come back in a year or so with the most amazing country album ever recorded (hey, it could happen) and he’d officially become the first openly gay country mega-star. Turns out he’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
