Old Dominion Celebrates “Whirlwind Weekend” With ACM Award, National TV Performance, Top 5 Hit & Songwriting No. 1

The guys from Old Dominion—Matthew Ramsey, Trevor Rosen, Geoff Sprung, Brad Tursi and Whit Sellers—are having a heck of a week, to say the least.

Not only did Old Dominion win the ACM Award for Group of the Year and perform their current Top 5 single, “Make It Sweet,” during the ACM Awards show on April 7, but the band is also celebrating the success of Michael Ray’s current No. 1 hit, “One That Got Away,” which Matthew and Trevor co-penned with Jesse Frasure and Josh Osborne.

Matthew and Trevor heard the news that “One That Got Away” was No. 1 on the Mediabase chart while they were in Las Vegas for the ACM Awards. Of course, they hit up Michael Ray via text and partook in a little Sin City celebration.

“It was funny because we were texting with Michael [Ray] and we were like, ‘We should have a shot,'” said Trevor. “You know, and we just thought we were going to go have a shot with Michael, and we walked in and it turned into a number one party.”

“Yeah, it was huge,” added Matthew.

“And it was really cool just to see all the different artists and all of our crew and team there,” said Trevor. “I mean, you could never plan for a weekend like this. So, just to have the No. 1 song, and to win an award and get to perform, it’s kind of a whirlwind.”

The band is currently headlining the Make It Sweet Tour, with dates through this fall.
