Old Dominion has emerged as one of the hottest breaking bands out of Nashville, fusing clever
lyrics and an infectious sound. Their lyrical wit and hook heavy songwriting has certainly proved
a winning method: since breaking onto the music scene in 2014, the band has notched eight No.

and Gold single certifications and headlined arenas and amphitheaters around the globe.

consecutive win in the “Group of The Year” category. Collectively, the band led nominations for
the 2020 show, with 8 total. At the 2020 CMT Awards, the band took home their first win for
“Group Video of The Year”. The group also notched two nominations for the 2020 CMAs including
“Vocal Group” and “Album of the Year” for their self-titled 2019 studio album, nominations for
“Top Country Duo/Group” and “Top Country Song” for the 2020 Billboard Music Awards, as well
as a “Favorite Duo/Group - Country” nod for the 2020 American Music Awards.
Over the course of their career, the band has also been notably named ACM “New Group of the
Year,” ACCA “Breakthrough Group of the Year,” AIMP “Songwriter Artist of the Year” and Music
