Country/Rock group, Old Dominion, made an early morning stop by Seacrest Studios in Charlotte, NC, prior to their concert in the Queen City. Band members, Geoff Sprung, Brad Tursi, Matthew Ramsey, Trevor Rosen, and Whit Sellers told the crowd gathered at Levine Children’s Hospital about being on tour with Kenny Chesney – they are currently on The Big Revival Tour 2015 – saying “it makes for a good weekend for us.” Traveling the country with nine people on board the tour bus, they confessed a lot of Rocky movie marathons happen!
The band answered patient questions like “do you keep a diary?” and “what TV game show would you like to appear on?” The group also told patients one new fad they are into trying is the Periscope app. When asked their advice for a patient in the Seacrest Studios audience about to graduate from high school, singer Matthew Ramsey said, “That’s your time. Figure out what’s in your heart and go for it! Be open to change and roll with it.” Matthew Ramsey and Trevor Rosen talked to patients about the songwriting process (both are accomplished songwriters). They said that sometimes lyrics can come in an hour and sometimes it takes months. They also told the Seacrest Studios audience that often songs are built around a title. After a comical round of “Hum Along” (see video), they performed their hit song, “Break Up With Him,” for patients and families. Our thanks to Old Dominion for the great advice, performance, and for spending time with us at Levine Children’s Hospital! We hope to see them back in Seacrest Studios soon!
