The holiday season is right around the corner, and that means great news for country music fans. The Taste of Country Christmas Tour kicks off this November and continues its trip through Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana into December.
The 6th annual tour will feature headliner Old Dominion, an emerging band of veteran singer-songwriters who have written songs for stars including The Band Perry, Keith Urban and Luke Bryan. Old Dominion have emerged as one of the hottest breaking bands in country music. “It’s kind of the classic, seven-year overnight success story,” lead guitarist Brad Tursi says with a laugh, reflecting on the longtime friends and collaborators slow-burning rise to recognition. “I think we’re all lucky enough to really love what we do and in that respect we were gonna just keep doing it no matter what.”
A band stocked with time-tested song craftsmen, Old Dominion, which includes lead singer Matthew Ramsey, multi-instrumentalist Trevor Rosen, bassist Geoff Sprung, drummer Whit Sellers, and lead guitarist Brad Tursi, write nearly every day. It’s a custom ingrained within them. So when piecing together their EP, which addresses road-tripping reflection, long-night love affairs and boozy bad decisions at every turn, it wasn’t so much a matter of writing catchy songs but instead choosing from their well of stellar material.
The five resulting tracks speak as much to their pristine decision-making skills as their musical chops. “We just try to find a groove or a hook or something that catches our ear, follow that rabbit trail and try to chase down a good song,” says Rosen, and the proof lies in the foot-stomping whiplash of their new single “Break Up With Him,” the hard-charging rock riot “Shut Me Up” (“We wanted to really put across what our live show was like,” Ramsey says. “It’s an energetic song and we’re an energetic band.”) and the slow strutting “Nowhere Fast” (“That one was a bear to wrestle into what it is now,” the singer offers).
Old Dominion are currently touring with country music superstar, Kenny Chesney on The Big Revival Tour, but will stop in Victoria and Temple, Texas for two nights of the Taste of Country Christmas Tour.

We're excited to announce Curb recording artist, Dylan Scott opening for Old Dominion on December 11th. Dylan Scott is gearing up to become a major force in country music. After selling over 125,000 units and having in excess of 2.7 million views of the video of his debut single, “Making This Boy Go Crazy”, the 24 year old Louisiana native has just released his follow up single “Crazy Over Me” to country radio and early indications are that it is going to be a big hit for him. Dylan’s live show consists of a fun-filled, high energy blend of originals and covers that are proving to be crowd pleasers at every venue and his ability to connect instantly with audiences of all ages is a gift that comes naturally to this budding superstar.
