Old Dominion’s Matthew Ramsey tells Songwriter Universe that he is a big classic rock music fan. “I’m a huge Springsteen fan; that’s my hero. I definitely studied his music and his performance a lot, so I got a lot from him. I was also a big grunge fan—a big Pearl Jam and Soundgarden fan. Also, there was a radio in our kitchen going on all that time that had the country radio on, so I was always exposed to that. So I kind of had everything. My dad was really good at playing [different music]; he had a whole record collection where he would play one song from a Motown record and while that was playing, he’d be picking out a Led Zeppelin record, and then he’d pick out a Waylon Jennings record. He just kept me exposed to everything, so I was really lucky in that respect.”

She’s a very happy person, and her energy is amazing around people she’s never met. I think that’s why people gravitate toward her so much.”
