Old Dominion lead singer Matt Ramsey tells the website Covetuer that his grandfather gave him some great advice. “My grandad told me when I was a kid to dress for the job that I wanted. He wasn’t talking about this, but it’s like speaking your goals out loud, only through your clothes. It’s all about setting yourself apart but being comfortable at the same time. I don’t wear anything I feel uncomfortable in. I don’t think any of us in the band do, but I think we all enjoy dressing up a little bit. It’s fun to walk on stage and own it a little bit.”

It was one of those things where I didn’t know whether to continue playing a sport or pursue something else. I started learning to play the guitar just for fun and I worked really hard at that, and then I started writing my own music. The next thing I know, I ended up with a record deal, got my first song on the radio and here I am now.”
