Jax isn’t totally wrong when he said, “Every other song that we play that’s not sung by you, was written by you guys.”
Old Dominion knows how to write hit songs. We know them for ‘Break Up with Him,’ ‘Snapback,’ and ‘Song for Another Time,’ but you may not know that the guys are also the creators behind a lot of other hit songs out there.
Ever heard of these jams?
‘Save It For A Rainy Day’ by Kenny Chesney.
‘Say You Do’ by Dierks Bentley
‘Sangria’ by Blake Shelton
‘Break Up With Him’ by Sam Hunt
‘Chainsaw’ by The Band Perry
Well, those tunes (and many more) came from Old Dominion.
Jax talks about song writing with the guys, and asks them to name their favorite song they’ve written that’s performed by another singer. A task that is not easy. “This is like choosing your favorite kid,” Trevor Rosen joked.
We’ve been very lucky to have Old Dominion perform in Chicago a lot over the past few months, and we’re hoping that they will be back more before the end of the year because their performance on Sunday night will go down as one of the best I’ve ever seen.
The band is currently on tour with Kenny Chesney’s 2016 Spread the Love Tour.
