After scoring 5 chart-toppers, Old Dominion is set to release another album in 2019 and hit the road in support of their new work with a 23-city tour. One of those stops is Bemidji at the Sanford Center.
OD is bringing along Jordan Davis and Morgan Evans as special guests for their ‘Make It Sweet Tour’.
Old Dominion has blown up in recent years since their first two albums Meat and Candy and Happy Endings dropped. That path to success wasn’t always easy. The fellas have been trying to reach the pinnacle for over 20 years.
In August, Old Dominion shared a video proving the grind they were on for many years. It was a video from 2010, of them covering Garth Brooks in Nashville, for a capacity crowd of only two people.
This is us in 2010. Jamming our fav @garthbrooks tune to a crowd of 2 whole people @wildhorseTN – what a crazy ride we have been on. I remember feeling lucky to watch them dance. pic.twitter.com/aH73OUioyR

A great example is 2015 Old Dominion played the Minnesota State Fair free stage. 3 short years later, a near sell-out on the grandstand at the same location.
For countless nights, they grinded away. Nevermind that they were successful as songwriters for the likes of Dierks Bentley, Kenny Chesney and others. Lead singer Trevor Rosen recalled a time with Billboard, “We couldn’t get signed to save our lives. It was either quit or just go build a following by ourselves… and basically force a label to want to sign us.”
The namesake for their tour is lifted from the title of the lead single from their 3rd studio album, due out in early 2019.
