After writing seven No. 1 songs for other artists, Old Dominion are finding similar success for themselves. The band have topped the country charts for the second time with their latest single “Song for Another Time.”
The song follows in the footsteps of previous two-week No. 1 “Break Up With Him” and the group’s Top 5 “Snapback.”
“When we went back into the studio to record ‘Song for Another Time’ to ensure it made Meat And Candy, we had initially pitched that song to Chesney to record,” Old Dominion frontman Matthew Ramsey says in a press release. “It was one of the first times I can remember an artist telling us we needed to save a song for ourselves, so thanks Kenny!”
The song currently sits at No. 1 on both the MediaBase and Billboard charts. Ramsey, Brad Tursi and Trevor Rosen of Old Dominion wrote “Song for Another Time” with Matt Jenkins.
“It definitely added something that we felt was missing on our album, and so to have it hit No. 1 feels really good as we trusted our instincts and as it turns out, they were right,” Rosen adds.
Following the success of two No. 1 singles, the band is hard at work in the studio preparing for their follow-up album with producer Shane McAnally. Tursi says they will never be able to “truly describe” what their first album did for them and how it changed their lives, and Ramsey agrees.
“It’s an incredible feeling to be on the receiving end of this much love from the fans, our friends at radio, the songwriting and music community …” Ramsey concedes. “We’ve learned there are so many people who have to be behind you in order to get to live this dream and to receive recognition like this with the validation of a No. 1 on the charts, and to each and every one of them, we want to say ‘thank you.'”
