Old Dominion is about to play their biggest headlining show in Boston! Matthew Ramsey, Trevor Rosen, Whit Sellers, Geoff Sprung, and Brad Tursi are pumped to be playing Boston’s iconic TD Garden. Ahead of the September 21 show, they called Country 1025’s Ben to chat about the show and much more. The reigning ACM and CMA Vocal Group of the Year has been playing around New England for many years. They were, for quite a while, Kenny Chesney’s favorite band to tour with. That’s how most of us got introduced to their live shows. The guys are headed our way very soon and called into the station with more details. Here, Old Dominion talks playing the Garden, favorite Boston spot, music and much more.
The band first formed in 2007 and chose the name Old Dominion because it’s a nickname for the state of Virginia. And since 4 out of the 5 members had links to the state, it made sense. They are all songwriters and actually started singing their originals in order to showcase them for other singers. Did you know Old Dominion has written quite a few big hit songs for other artists? Most people know they wrote Kenny Chesney’s “Save It For a Rainy Day.” But they also wrote “Wild Hearts” for Keith Urban, Blake Shelton’s “Sangria” and many more.
The multi-award winning band has many fans here in New England and are getting close to selling out the TD Garden. Over the years we’ve seen them perform at smaller clubs, but they have also been a perennial favorite as openers for Kenny Chesney in Foxboro. They are famous for doing intimate pop-up shows before heading to Gillette. Last year, they popped-up at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston. Will they do this before the TD Garden Show? You’ll have to check out what they told Ben, here. Listen as Old Dominion talks playing the Garden, favorite Boston spot and music.
