Last night, Nashville hitmakers Old Dominion were the guest recording artists on NBC’s hit series “Songland,” as they looked for a song to be featured in a new Jeep® brand commercial. The band, along with Jeep/FCA CMO Olivier François, chose “Songland” contestant Katelyn Tarver’s“Young” to be released and featured in the 90-second Jeep® brand commercial, in which Tarver appears as a character.
“Songland” provides talented up-and-coming songwriters with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to collaborate with visionary music producers who are responsible for today’s biggest hits.
“Songwriting is what this band is built on,” said Matthew Ramsey, frontman of Old Dominion. “Our love for writing songs and for the people who write them is what got us where we are today. We jumped at the chance to be a part of ‘Songland’ because it meant that the public would get a glimpse of what we have known for years: Without songwriters there would be no music.”
“Young” is ranked No. 3 today on the Apple Country Music chart and is now available to stream/download HERE.
