Old Dominion Will Make It Sweet in 2019

Happy Monday, indeed, Old Dominion.

When the country band posted on Twitter on Monday morning (Oct. 8), they started with “Happy Monday.” Then they went on to detail their single and tour of the same name, Make It Sweet. So yeah, this Monday is turning out to be a very happy one; the kind that makes you want to clap your hands and sing along with the instantly infectious sweet new tune. Sweet, because of the “life is short, make it sweet” sentiment in the chorus. And also sweet because of the brutal truth of the bridge: “Days will be long but the years will fly right by/We’ll never be as young as we are tonight.”

It’s a lesson on how to live your life, and how to rationalize seeing more live music. Tickets for the first 23 stops will go on sale this Friday.
