Old Dominion

Old Dominion (Sold Out)

with special guest Brandon Lay
Wednesday, Oct. 30 – 8:30 p.m.

Bankers Life Fieldhouse
Doors open: 7:30 p.m.
Tickets: $50

CMA and two-time ACM Group of the Year Old Dominion has emerged as one of the hottest breaking bands in country music, fusing clever lyrics and an infectious sound. Proving that they are not your average country band, Old Dominion blends old-fashioned country charm, lyrical wit and rock n’ roll grit into radio-friendly, hook-heavy pop nuggets. Old Dominion’s sophomore album, Happy Endings, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and No. 7 on the Billboard Top 200. Their latest single, “One Man Band,” follows the success of previous singles “Written in the Sand,” “Hotel Key” and “Make It Sweet,” all of which hit No. 1 on Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase charts.

Old Dominion consists of lead singer Matthew Ramsey, lead guitarist Brad Tursi, multi-instrumentalist Trevor Rosen, bassist Geoff Sprung and drummer Whit Sellers. The band’s self-titled third studio album drops October 25, 2019.

Special guest Brandon Lay was named a 2019 Artist to Watch by The Tennessean, PopCulture.com, The Boot, and Country Music Tattle Tale. He’s also part of the Vevo DSCVR Class of 2019, the only country music artist represented in the class, and CMT’s Listen Up Artists of 2019. Brandon’s breakthrough single “Yada Yada Yada” reached the Top 40 on the country charts in early 2019.

Brett Young

with special guest Tenille Townes
Thursday, Oct. 31 – 8:30 p.m.

Bankers Life Fieldhouse
Doors open: 7:30 p.m.
Tickets: $50

Brett Young’s sophomore album Ticket to L.A. hit #1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart upon its December 2018 release. The album follows his colossal 2017 self-titled debut, which dominated the Top 20 on the Country Albums chart for 37 weeks and quickly reached RIAA PLATINUM certification.

Delivering four consecutive No. 1 platinum-certified hits, Young was recently named ASCAP’s 2018 Country Songwriter-Artist of the Year for his “melodic craftsmanship” (Billboard), and his 3X platinum smash hit “In Case You Didn’t Know” was bestowed with the top honor at the BMI Country Awards as their Song of the Year. Young has also garnered nominations from ACM, Billboard, Teen Choice, CMT and CMA Awards as he continues to rack up nonstop hits as “one of country music’s most reliable new hitmakers” (Tennessean).

Special guest Tenille Townes isn’t quite like anyone else who has ever graced Nashville’s stages. With the lyrical fortitude of Patty Griffin, the soulful nature of Chris Stapleton or even Adele and the genre-transcending power of Shania Twain, Townes is paving a path as one of Nashville’s most promising new artists. Townes’ 2018 single “Somebody’s Daughter” reached the Top 30 on the country charts in 2019.
