Meat and Candy
Label: Rca Records Label Nashville
Before finding success with Old Dominion, its members –– some of whom have been friends since college –– found success as songwriters. So it should come as no surprise that one of the defining characteristics of the band's debut Meat and Candy is the clever wordplay that underpins their songs. Highlights include "Song for Another Time," which plays on the familiar and well liked with references to the classics "Brown Eyed Girl,” and “Sweet Caroline” threaded throughout the lyrics, while “Snapback” draws on a steady beat over which lyrics flow before heading to an anthemic chorus.
