It is always difficult to make after the first very successful Album (Meat And Candy) a second, which can be the expectations to meet. Now, Old Dominion , the follow-up album, Happy Endings released.
The five members of the band have long been as a songwriter in Nashville in search of success, before they came together. Lead singer Matthew Ramsey co-wrote all twelve Songs. Also guitarist Brad Tursi is on some of the Songs as Co-author in the process. Tursi to look forward to for this week about the Song
The Album starts with the current Single,
First of all: is it the best song on the CD!
It may come as no surprise that the songs revolve mostly around the well-known Country-topics: love, loss, hope. But the Whole thing is neatly Packed, with some clever word play.
