Following a string of sold out shows and chart-scorching success, acclaimed country band Old Dominion share a brand new single and announce their 2019 headlining arena tour, both entitled “Make It Sweet.” This marks the group’s first new original release since the arrival of the chart-topping Happy Endings in Summer 2017.
The upbeat “Make It Sweet” unlocks the next chapter of Old Dominion. Rustling acoustic guitars and pedal steel bristle up against heartfelt verses before the hashtag-worthy handclap-driven refrain—“Life is short, make it sweet”—takes flight. The song culminates on a rafter-reaching guitar solo and show-stopping vocal performance.
Most importantly, the tune heralds more music to come from the reigning Academy of Country Music’s “Vocal Group of the Year” very soon.
The boys will perform “Make It Sweet” for the very first time live on The Ellen DeGeneres Show October 16. Be sure to tune in!
This fall has turned into something of a triumphant victory lap for Old Dominion. They recently put on a sold-out bucket list gig at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville for their very special headline show: “An Evening With Friends.” The event raised a total of $60K for charity benefitting the Opry Trust Fund and the Ryan Seacrest Foundation. Their smash hit “Hotel Key” ascended to #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase charts, becoming their 6th #1 from Happy Endings. With multiple platinum and gold certifications, Old Dominion also notably eclipsed 1 billion on-demand streams, averaging nearly 4 million monthly listeners on Spotify alone.
