Old Dominion Scores 8th No. 1 Hit With “One Man Band”

The guys from Old Dominion—Matthew Ramsey, Trevor Rosen, Geoff Sprung, Brad Tursi and Whit Sellers—scored their eighth No. 1 single this week as “One Man Band” ascended to the top of both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and Mediabase chart.

Penned by Josh Osborne with Old Dominion’s Matthew, Trevor and Brad, “One Man Band” fits the OD playbook with its clever spin on the idea of committing to a relationship instead of the solitary life: “I don’t wanna be a one man band, I don’t wanna be a rolling stone alone / Putting miles on a rundown van, baby, we can take our own show on the road / I’ll lay down the beat, you carry the tune, we’ll get tattoos and we’ll trash hotel rooms / Baby, take my hand, ’cause I don’t wanna be a one man band.”

“We actually started writing ‘One Man Band’ immediately before we were supposed to be onstage one night,” says Matthew. “The intro music was playing—we had had the idea but it just kinda struck in that moment . . . we were supposed to be walking out onstage, but instead we were sitting there next to this big speaker singing [the chorus]. Then we came back to it later—I think probably a couple of weeks later—out on the road in a dressing room and we finished that song up. You never know when inspiration is going to hit.”

“One Man Band” is the second single from Old Dominion’s self-titled third album, which dropped in October.
