Old Dominion, the five member band comprised of Matthew Ramsey, Trevor Rosen, Whit Sellers, Geoff Sprung and Brad Tursi, has signed with Sony Music Nashville’s RCA Nashville imprint. The group, whose members have had cuts by Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, The Band Perry and Chris Young, is managed by Morris Higham Management.

Old Dominion’s debut EP, containing single “Break Up With Him,” was produced by hitmaker Shane McAnally. The single was rush released, based on fan and programmer demand, after early success at satellite and terrestrial radio as an album cut.

The deal with RCA Nashville, where Old Dominion joins a roster that includes Garth Brooks, Miranda Lambert and Jake Owen, means more music is on the way later this year.

“We couldn’t be more excited to join the RCA Nashville family,” shares frontman Ramsey. “As a band, we are eager to start our next chapter and are grateful for the opportunity to do that with the support of an amazing promotion and marketing team in RCA.”

“There has been a VERY loud buzz about Old Dominion around the Sony Music Nashville offices for some time now; so much that the three imprints were all fighting for the chance to work with the band,” says Sony Nashville CEO, Gary Overton. “I am pleased to announce the signing of Old Dominion to RCA Records Nashville.”

“Rarely in our business do you meet artists who are a ‘triple threat’– singer, songwriter, and musician. On top of those qualities, which each of them possesses, Old Dominion provides a truly amazing live experience,” says Morris Higham Management President, Clint Higham. “The team at Morris Higham Management is honored to represent the band and is looking forward to the partnership with RCA Nashville.”

The band will spend the spring and summer touring, as well as opening select stadium dates on Kenny Chesney’s The Big Revival Tour.

Thirty Tigers worked with Old Dominion to self-release the EP.

Additionally, the band is repped by publicity firm EB Media.
