23 Mar Old Dominion Voted ACM Best New Vocal Duo/Group
Old Dominion, a band Vice has already raved is “on the cusp of superstardom” learned today, March 23, that their peers and music industry colleagues have voted them the Academy of Country Music’s Best New Vocal Duo/Group of the Year. Also nominated for Vocal Group of the Year at the 51st ACM Awards, Old Dominion will perform at Party For A Cause Festival on Sunday, April 4.
“Everyone we are nominated with has had the kind of year that deserves winning this award,” said Old Dominion’s lead singer Matthew Ramsey. “We are honored to be in the same category as all of them and beyond humbled to have won. We plan to do our absolute best to live up to everything this award comes with. Thank you, thank you!”
In addition to their first awards’ nominations, the band is also celebrating the success of their second single “Snapback,” which is racing up the charts – already in the Top 10 and climbing. “Snapback” is the follow-up to Old Dominion’s two-week No.1 debut smash single “Break Up With Him,” off their critically acclaimed album that Entertainment Weekly called “deceptively smart” and NPR tapped as “first-rate craftsmanship.”
Named “one of country-pop’s only genuine bands” by Rolling Stone Country, Old Dominion is currently headlining their Meat and Candy Tour before hitting the road again this year with Kenny Chesney for his Spread The Love Tour, along with Miranda Lambert and Sam Hunt. They just returned from their first string of international shows in London where they played to thousands of fans as part of the Country to Country Festival.
