They are five of the most likable guys, not just in Nashville, not just in country music, but pretty much everywhere they go.
If they aren’t bringing the party with their music, which is guilty of making toes tap and fans sing along, the fellas of Old Dominion have audiences doubled over with their hilarious antics in concert and on social media. Fans go crazy for their infectious grooves and high energy live shows that have bodies dancing and voices singing along. And while that would be enough of a reason for us to love this band, in this Rare Country’s 5 video, we’re looking at five more reasons that we can’t get enough of the band’s Matt, Trevor, Brad, Geoff and Whitt.
Like the way they started. Now, four of the five members of Old Dominion are from Virginia, thus the name, but they didn’t really get together until they arrived in Nashville. Before they were tickling eardrums with their debut single, “Shut Me Up,” and topping the charts with the follow-up No. 1, “Break Up With Him,” these boys were still making noise in Nashville as hit songwriters, penning favorite tunes for other country stars, like Luke Bryan’s “Light It Up,” “Tyler Farr’s “A Guy Walks Into A Bar,” Chris Young’s “Neon,” the Band Perry’s “Better Dig Two” and “Chainsaw,” and Kelsea Ballerini’s new single, “I Hate Love Songs.” And, a lot of times, they’ll perform some of these songs during their own shows.
Speaking of shows, if you get a ticket to an Old Dominion concert, you often get two shows for the price of one. As musically talented as this band of brothers is, they are also known for having fans cracking up over their hilarious antics and their contagious humor. Heck, you don’t really even have to go to one of their shows (but you should) to enjoy their zaniness. Follow them on social media and you’ll benefit from their ridiculous funny bones. Come on, y’all. They named their first album “Meat and Candy,” and the cover of their second album, “Happy Endings,” is a cross-stitch sampler that features … Big Foot?
Who does that?
Make no mistake, though. As funny as this ACM Award-nominated group is, their talent is as real as it gets and seems to pour from them like a fountain.
Those are just a couple of reasons that we can’t get enough of Old Dominion. What about you? What is it about this incredible group of artists that makes you bust a grin? Be sure to share it in the comments.
And don’t forget to check back in later in the week when we have more of the news and fun from in and around country music in Rare Country’s 5
