Sony Music CEO Predicts OD Will Be Superstars

In an exclusive interview with The Tennessean, Doug Morris, the 76-year-old music industry legend who oversees Sony’s record label operation, said he viewed OD as joining current superstar artists Kenny ChesneyMiranda LambertCarrie UnderwoodBrad Paisley and Garth Brooks to provide a new foundation for the company’s country music division.

The day after Doug Morris heard OD’s EP, Clint Higham (OD’s manager) said Doug Morris called him to say he wanted to sign the band.

What’s funny about the company is there’s five superstar acts and some very good artists underneath,” Morris said. “And these two new ones just make it look great. All of a sudden, there’s a shimmer to it.”

“Most of the heads of labels like that don’t have a lot to do with the acts, but every once in a while you get that special thing and it’s pretty great, and Doug is pretty good about stuff like that,” Dale Morris commented in regard to the passion Sony Music has put into Old Dominion.

Watch the Break Up With Him Video Trailer

This week marks the 30th anniversary of the film Back to the Future. Appropriately, OD is paying homage to that classic slice of ’80s pop culture with the new video for their single “Break Up With Him.”

In the exclusive preview, you can see leader Matthew Ramsey doing his best Marty McFly imitation at the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance, trying to win his girl (presumably not his mother) from a letterman-jacketed Biff type.

“We came up with the idea for the Back to the Future video when we had a long ride from West Virginia all the way to San Francisco,” Matthew explains. “It was a long radio tour trip, and on our stops we knew we had a video coming up and we wanted to talk about it, so we were sitting by the pool coming up with all these crazy ideas, and somebody said something like, ‘I don’t know if people are gonna get that,’ and one guy goes, ‘Your kids are gonna love it.’ Which is a catchphrase from the movie, and that just sparked us down this road.
