OD signs to major label Sony RCA Nashville

2015 has already been a big year for country rock band Old Dominion, and shows no signs of slowing down. The 5 piece band composed of professional studio musicians and established songwriters have signed a record deal with Sony RCA Nashville. Sony Music Nashville Chairman and CEO Gary Overton said Old Dominion wins over fans with their rocking approach to country music.

As an independent band, Old Dominion forged a clever strategic partnership with Nashville label services company Thirty Tigers, which helped lead to sturdy early sales numbers. Old Dominion’s debut EP that has turned so many heads was produced by hit-making songwriter and producer Shane McAnally.

McAnally referred the band to manager Clint Higham, who also represents Kenny Chesney, where he was initially skeptical about working for a band because, as he put it, “you’ve got five people you’re reporting to instead of one.” But Higham and his team fell in love with Old Dominion, helped the group build a following and developed a more refined product to offer the record labels.

Rolling Stone Picks OD as “New Artist You Need To Know”

A huge thank you to Rolling Stone for selecting OD as one of the top ten new artists you need to know. Here’s what they said:

“This Nashville five-piece has been a backstage force on Music Row for years — penning songs for the likes of the Band Perry and Luke Bryan. Now, on the heels of a tour with Chase Rice and a bubbling hit, “Shut Me Up,” Old Dominion are seeking to claim new territory. They’re building on the country-band blueprint set by the likes of Alabama and adding some fuzzy guitars, catchy licks and even a little rap that shoots for stadiums, not saloons.”
