resetting and securing the stage, Old Dominion members Matthew Ramsey,
Brad Tursi, Trevor Rosen, Geoff Sprung and Whitt Sellers welcomed the
droves of fans lining the tousled bike railing into the park for a free
stripped performance that included their two-week No. 1 “Break Up With
Him,” “Snapback” and current single “Song For Another Time” from their

Lake Amphitheater before joining Kenny Chesney at East Rutherford’s
MetLife Stadium on Saturday, Aug. 20.
