When the group Old Dominion won New Group Of The Year at the ACM Awards they were against some serious competition. As an unknown to me, the impact that this group has had this year is impressive no matter what you think of their sound. I don’t know of a publication that hasn’t been talking about them. If you go to their videos you can see new fans commenting “I don’t usually like country music but…” Trust me, when you can convince someone that doesn’t like country music to listen you have something special.
Instead of finding the talk/sing verses unappealing I was actually drawn in by the fun of it all. They aren’t pushing for something that doesn’t work. Instead, they are working with what they’ve got. This five-man group has been together since 2007 and had moderate success in 2014 with their first EP. This year, however, they seem to be reaching new heights. Their EP Meat and Candy was released in November of 2015 with RCA Nashville and peaked #3 on the US Country Charts. The two singles “Break Up With Him” and “Snapback” have both hit the top 10 on the US charts.
