Seven More Reasons Not To Miss Old Dominion in Iowa City
Since they first appeared on the country music scene as a group two years ago, Old Dominion has been to the top of the charts multiple times and put all five of their songs into the top twenty.
The group's members are Matthew Ramsey, Trevor Rosen, Whit Sellers, Geoff Sprung, and Brad Tursi. They've become a formidable hit-making quintet the last two years, but how and why did they all join forces?
The reason the five got together is quite simple. To showcase their songs. You see, all five are songwriters with three of the five having written songs you're very familiar with. There's nothing I enjoy more in concert than seeing the people who actually wrote the songs perform them live. Combining Old Dominion's five songs that have already rocked the country music charts to these incredible songwriting credits and we're in for a great show April 27 at Carver-Hawkeye Arena, along with Michael Ray and Brandon Lay.
Old Dominion's Brad Tursi co-wrote Luke Bryan's latest #1 song, "Light It Up," with Luke himself.
Trevor Rosen co-wrote William Michael Morgan's hit song, "I Met a Girl."
Rosen also gets writing credits on The Band Perry's "Better Dig Two," which became the first number one song he had a hand in writing five years ago.
Both Rosen and Matthew Ramsey took part in writing the Dierks Bentley smash, "Say You Do." It resided two weeks at the top of the charts.
Ramsey and Tursi co-wrote Kenny Chesney's 2015 hit, "Save It For a Rainy Day." It, too, became a number one songs... spending three weeks in the top spot in 2015.
Ramsey also co-wrote "Make You Miss Me," one of four chart-toppers from Sam Hunt's debut album.
