Old Dominion’s brand new album, ‘Happy Endings’, has been released and the songs have been added to their YouTube channel. Here’s the song ‘Stars in the City’ ft. Little Big Town.
Old Dominion packs a lot of vocal power on their own, but they’re taking things to a whole new level with this Little Big Town collaboration.
That’s right, the two groups have teamed up for a new song called “Stars in the City.” It’s included on Old Dominion’s sophomore album, “Happy Endings,” out Aug 25. We’re proud to give you your first taste of the song here.
In this clip from the recording studio, Old Dominion lead singer Matthew Ramsey explains what it was like to work with Karen, Jimi, Phillip and Kimberly from Little Big Town.
He says, “They came in and it was amazing just to watch them work their magic on that song, figuring out their parts with us. They really care about the song and care about their performance on it. It’s rare to find such talent and such genuinely nice people at the same time.”
Recording with Little Big Town made Matthew realize just how far Old Dominion has come since they released their debut album, “Meat and Candy,” in 2015. That album included the hits “Break Up With Him,” “Snapback” and “Song For Another Time.”
He adds, “It was a very surreal moment to realize that here we are on this playing field with some major players, and it was really cool to watch them work.”
Old Dominion is closing in on yet another No. 1 hit this week with “No Such Thing as a Broken Heart,” the lead single from “Happy Endings.”

KENNY ROGERS ANNOUNCES STAR-STUDDED CONCERT IN NASHVILLE CELEBRATING 60-YEAR CAREER
“ALL IN FOR THE GAMBLER: KENNY ROGERS’ FAREWELL CONCERT CELEBRATION”
TICKETS ON SALE JULY 21 AT 10AM CT VIA TICKETMASTER
Blackbird Presents and Kenny Rogers are proud to announce “All In For The Gambler: Kenny Rogers’ Farewell Concert Celebration,” an all-star concert event taping at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee on Wednesday, October 25, 2017 at 7PM CT. This once-in-a-lifetime concert event will honor Kenny Rogers’ historic 60-year career and will feature the final performance together by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, one of popular music’s most beloved duets of all time. “As I’m bringing this chapter of my career to a close, this will be an unforgettable way to celebrate with my talented friends, who I’m so grateful to have crossed paths with,” says Kenny Rogers. “It means so much that they would feel compelled to do this for me. Of course, the night would not be the same without Dolly Parton being part of it. We’ve enjoyed a special friendship for decades, and I’ll forever look back fondly on the many collaborations, performances, and laughs we’ve shared as some of the most extraordinary moments of my career. I know it will be a moving experience for us standing on that stage together for one last time.”
This one-night-only concert event taping will bring together fans, friends and music icons to celebrate Kenny Rogers. “All In For The Gambler” will feature performances by Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, Little Big Town, Alison Krauss, The Flaming Lips, Idina Menzel, Jamey Johnson, Elle King and many other special guests to be announced in the coming weeks. “Kenny is like a family member to me. We have been friends for over 30 years and made musical magic together. Since 1983, when we released ‘Islands In The Stream,’ everyone has had an expectation to see Kenny everywhere I go and me with him wherever he goes,” says Dolly Parton. “Well, I guess for many of those fans that wanted to see us together, this will be that night. Performing with Kenny for the last time ever on October 25th is going to be emotional for both of us, but it’s also going to be very special. Even though Kenny may be retiring, as hefades from the stage, our love for each other will never fade away.”
Tickets go on sale July 21, 2017 at 10AM CT online at Ticketmaster.com, by phone at 800-745-3000, all Ticketmaster locations and the Bridgestone Arena box office. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the T.J. Martell Foundation and the Kenny Rogers Children’s Center.
