Country music's Old Dominion, with roots in Botetourt County, is releasing hit after hit. Next year, the band will do a big show near home.
Berglund Center announced that it has booked the band to play its Performing Arts Theatre on Feb. 18, 2017. Tickets are $31.50 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday via 877-482-8496 or hometownbanktix.com. Avoid pesky fees by visiting the venue's box office.
Old Dominion, featuring singer/songwriter Matt Ramsey up front and Whit Sellers on drums — both grew up in Botetourt County — went on a nice run the past year or so with its album, "Meat and Candy." The disc dropped in August 2015 and sprung No. 1 country single "Break Up With You," and the hit follow-up "Snapback." It's latest single, "Song for Another Time," is No. 5 on the Billboard country singles chart as of last week.
The album itself peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard country chart and remained at No. 43 more than a year after its release.
The act won the ACM and ACCA Breakthrough Duo/Group of the Year awards, and received an American Music Awards nomination Favorite Duo or Group – Country.
