Old Dominion Decorate Their Tour Bus For Christmas
Old Dominion certainly know how to deck the halls–or, their tour bus, anyway.
The country group get themselves into the holiday spirit by sprucing up the vehicle with all sorts of Christmas cheer.”We get in the spirit,” Matt Ramsey tells Taste of Country, with Trevor Rosen revealing that they put up a little Christmas tree on the bus, accompanied by Yule Log on the TV. While they don’t do a gift exchange, Ramsey admits that they revel in spending quality time together. “We just hang with each other and make it warm and cozy on the bus,” he says.
While Ramsey is typically in charge of supplying the Christmas tree, Geoff Sprung is the one who’s all over playing the holiday music. “I’ll jump the gun as early as allowed on Christmas music,” he confesses.
Except for a performance of “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer,” the guys say they’ve never really played a Christmas song live before. However, they have considered writing an original holiday tune with the potential title of “Convertible Christmas,” which of course has a clever tagline. “Santa’s got the AC on in his sleigh, it’s warm in Californ-I-A,” Brad Tursi recites. “Now, if we can just write all of the rest of the song.”
The five-member group will hit the road on the 2018 Happy Endings World Tour in support of the album of the same name. The majority of the tour takes place in Canada with six dates in the U.S., two in the United Kingdom and Australia and one in Ireland. The tour launches on Feb. 1 and concludes March 17 in Queensland.
