Originally from Buchanan, Virginia, Matthew Ramsey moved to Nashville in 2000 to pursue his passion for songwriting, where he met future co-writer and bandmate Trevor Rosen. The two went on to form the band, Old Dominion, in which Ramsey is the lead singer. Old Dominion's self-titled EP, produced by SMACKSong's own Shane McAnally, featured the band's first hit song, "Break Up With Him," which was co-written by Ramsey. Old Dominion's latest album, Happy Endings, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart and #7 on the Top 200. Their first two singles "No Such Thing As a Broken Heart" and "Written in the Sand" both reached #1 on Country Mediabase Chart and were also co-written by Ramsey.

 

Ramsey has written several hit songs recorded and released by The Band Perry ("Chainsaw"), Craig Morgan ("Wake Up Lovin' You"), Dierks Bentley ("Say You Do"), Kenny Chesney ("Save It for a Rainy Day") and Luke Bryan ("Goodbye Girl"). Ramsey is currently on the road with Old Dominion for their Happy Endings World Tour, which was recently extended following the band's success of winning ACM Vocal Group of the Year.
