I’m always saying I’m not a fan of country music. Then I listen to bands like Old Dominion and I think, “Well, maybe I am”, because I love what they do — that sweet contemporary sort of pop rock country sound. Which is why I was thrilled to see Old Dominion on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week, performing two singles from their recently released debut album — ‘Break Up With Him‘ and ‘Snapback’.
And what I like about Old Dominion, above and beyond their rich, warm and cool sound, and their fabulous guitars, is that their songs always seem to have such a great hook to them. A hook that runs around in your head long after the song is over.
And, if you’re wondering what ‘Snapback‘ means, as I must admit I was, here is Old Dominion themselves explaining what the term is and why they used it in this, I have to say, very cool new song.
As for the new album, it’s called Meat and Candy, and hit number 16 on the Billboard 200 and number 5 on the Top Country Albums charts. And, yep, it’s good.
Now watch Old Dominion perform ‘Snapback‘ and ‘Break Up With Him‘ on Jimmy Kimmel below. Lovely performances, aren’t they?
