Old Dominion Snags First CMA with ‘Vocal Group of the Year’ Win

The guys had some serious competition, but wound up coming out on top.

Old Dominion are officially a CMA award-winning group!

The guys — lead singer Matthew Ramsey, lead guitarist Brad Tursi , multi-instrumentalist Trevor Rosen, bassist Geoff Sprung, and drummer Whit Sellers — took home the coveted Vocal Group of the Year award last night at the 52nd Annual CMA Awards in Nashville. Old Dominion were up against major powerhouse artists including Lady Antebellum, Midland, Little Big Town, and LANCO.

“It’s been really a hell of a year for us so it was very gratifying and validating that we were recognize by the Country Music Association in this way. We could not be more excited,” Ramsey said.

Old Dominion also performed their two-week No. 1 hit “Hotel Key” during the CMA Awards live broadcast.

Their big win follows on the heels of the band wrapping a sold out European leg of their “Happy Endings World Tour” at Queen Margaret Union in Glasgow, Scotland. The nine-date run saw the band hit cities across Ireland, England, and Scotland.
