OLD DOMINION CAPS YEAR WITH SOLD OUT INAUGURAL STAGECOACH SPOTLIGHT MEAT AND CANDY TOUR

With 180+ shows and RIAA Gold certified album, 2016 ACM New Vocal Group of the Year Wraps “on the cusp of superstardom” [Vice]


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – In their First Listen feature, NPR dubbed Old Dominion’s Meat & Candy “first-rate
craftsmanship,” yet it was the band’s ability to bring those songs to
life in their live show that led to the five-piece being selected for a
unique partnership on the touring front — and the first in history —
with Stagecoach. Aligning with “the biggest country music gathering in
the world” (Los Angeles Times), Stagecoach tapping Old Dominion as part of the inaugural Stagecoach Spotlight Tour was
just one in a series of major firsts for the band in what has been a
breakout year. The partnership was overwhelmingly successful with 15 of
Old Dominion’s 33-dates, 28-states headlining Meat and Candy Tour stops co-branded with the festival powerhouse, all seeing the band playing to fully packed houses.

“It’s been ridiculous,” shares Old Dominion’s frontman Matthew Ramsey.
“To think of what all we have accomplished as a band… as performers, as
songwriters… to connect on that level with so many fans, we’re just so
thankful for what this year has brought.”

Just last month the album Entertainment Weekly called “deceptively smart” and “infectious,” Meat & Candy, was
officially RIAA Gold certified in part due to the success of their
newly cemented No. 1, “Song For Another Time,” the second chart-topper
off their critically-acclaimed major label debut album.

With a 2016 show tally of 182 and over 60,000 fans rocked in North America on the Meat and Candy Tour alone (not including fans they played to on Kenny Chesney’s Spread The Love Tour),
the band, comprised of lead singer Ramsey, lead guitarist Brad Tursi,
multi-instrumentalist Trevor Rosen, bassist Geoff Sprung and drummer
Whit Sellers, will kick-off 2017 joining Miranda Lambert on her Highway Vagabon Tour.
