With one #1 hit from their forthcoming third album already in the books, Old Dominion today shares a fourth single from the project with the release of “Never Be Sorry.”
The song infuses the band’s trademark blend of harmony and uniquely-phrased lyrics to deliver a story which lead vocalist Matthew Ramsey says is “about that unfortunate realization when sometimes you're in a relationship that just wasn't what you thought it was and also wasn't what it used to be. It can be hard, sad, and frustrating, but also important to remember that you loved that person and shouldn't be apologetic for loving them. Maybe it didn't work out, but like the song says, you cannot be sorry for falling in love with that person. Remembering those details, and the good parts that made the relationship unique and special, is what keeps it alive in some way, forever in your heart."
The band’s current radio single, “One Man Band,” was released due to overwhelming popular demand for the the track, a song which showcases a side of the band that’s rarely been heard on radio (but has always been present in their live shows and album recordings). The single has more than 47 million on-demand streams to date and is becoming one of their fastest-rising hits, which is saying something since their previous radio single, “Make It Sweet” was their seventh #1 single (sixth on Billboard). It’s a string of hits rarely seen from any artist in country music, let alone a band which also plays their own music on the recordings (something rarely done with the studio wizards Nashville features).
The band’s third album will hit stores and DSP’s on October 25 and is co-produced by the band along with longtime collaborator and friend, Shane McAnally.
