Old Dominion has blown up in recent years since their album Meat and Candy and now Happy Endings hit the shelves. However, that journey to their current fame wasn't always easy. The group has been actively trying to reach this point for more than two decades.
"We couldn't get signed to save our lives. It was either quit or just go build a following by ourselves [...] and basically force a label to want to sign us."
They signed to RCA Nashville in early 2014, releasing their EP later that year. In 2015, their song "Break Up With Him" skyrocketed to No. 1 on Country Airplay and then "Song For Another Time" did same. However, that wasn't the end, they had to continue pushing to prove themselves in the country genre.
Recently, Old Dominion shared a video proving the grind they were on for many years. It was a video from 2010, of them covering Garth Brooks at Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville, Tennessee for a crowd of only two people. They closed the post with, "I remember feeling lucky to watch them dance."
