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.

  • Boston Is One of the Best Selling Shows and a Good Supporting lineup helps

    We are all so excited the guys will be playing the TD Garden for the first time.  And apparently it’s one of their best selling shows, as they explain here:

  • Does Old Dominion Have A Favorite spot in Boston? And will they share?

    Like most of us, Old Dominion are creatures of habit. Hey, why mess with a good thing, right? They do have a favorite place they love to grab breakfast in Boston and have been going to for years. And yes, they do share it here. Plus, being in Boston is a little tough for lead singer, Matthew Ramsey because of his allergy.

  • "Memory Lane" - how it's different and how it came to be

    Matthew and the guys discuss how “Memory Lane” came to life. In the song, they said they basically “double-dipped with hooks.” It certainly is catchy, these guys are true craftsmen.

  • We LOVED the 2022 Pop-Up Show! Will they do it again?

    In 2022 Old Dominion was back at Gillette Stadium with Kenny Chesney. But this time they decided to do a “pop-up” show, ahead of their 2 nights with Kenny in Foxboro. They put out the word to fans on social that they could sign up on their website to be in this intimate location. They revealed it was at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston, with a capacity of only about 900 people. Those lucky fans who signed up in time then had to get in line outside the club. It was a truly special night of music.

    Will they do it again before their TD Garden show? Find out what the band had to say about that!
