OLD DOMINION SET TO PREMIERE MUSIC VIDEO FOR “BREAK UP WITH HIM” EXCLUSIVELY ON CMT WEDNESDAY, JULY 8

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Monday, July 6) –RCA Records Nashville’s own Old Dominion will premiere their first-ever major label music video for their song “Break Up With Him” via CMT this Wednesday, July 8. In addition to its TV debut, the video can be viewed on demand across all CMT digital platforms including OldDominion.CMT.com, CMT Pure and the CMT Artists app.old dominion

The thematic music video was shot in Nashville, TN during the annual CMA Music Festival in June and was directed by the aptly titled, Director Steve.  The what-everyone-will-be-talking-about video showcases the humor and cleverness that the five band members of Old Dominion possess. The band members gave their fans a preview of what’s to come in a trailer for the upcoming video. View it by clicking HERE.

“We came up with the idea for the Back to the Future video when we had a long ride from West Virginia all the way to San Francisco,” Matthew Ramsey tells Country Weekly. “It was a long radio tour trip, and on our stops we knew we had a video coming up and we wanted to talk about it, so we were sitting by the pool coming up with all these crazy ideas, and somebody said something like, ‘I don’t know if people are gonna get that,’ and one guy goes, ‘Your kids are gonna love it.’ Which is a catchphrase from the movie, and that just sparked us down this road.”

Old Dominion is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on their debut album set to release via RCA Records Nashville late 2015. The untitled album comes on the heels of the gut-punch self-titled EP, which Rolling Stone Country says is dashed with “fuzzy guitars, catchy licks and even a little rap” and features the back porch smack of the undeniable first radio single “Break Up With Him” and the bruising “Shut Me Up,” and is the product of the five-piece band, which includes singer Matthew Ramsey, lead guitarist Brad Tursi, multi-instrumentalist Trevor Rosen, bassist Geoff Sprung and drummer Whit Sellers. They’ve spent eight years honing their craft, each making a name for themselves in Nashville by penning songs for the likes of Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, The Band Perry, Dierks Bentley and Tyler Farr. Now the band that The Tennessean describes as “a humble group of songwriters and musicians who earned their way in the music industry” is out on the road on Kenny Chesney’s The Big Revival Tour for 18 stadium performances plus over 130 tour dates of their own in 2015.
