Completing the trio of performing-rights organizations’ country-music events leading into the 2020 CMA Awards, ASCAP has announced its country winners. Like the SESAC and BMI country awards in recent days, the event honoring the year’s most-played country songs is being presented digitally but will be spaced out from November 9th to 12th.
Old Dominion were presented with the Song of the Year honor for “One Man Band,” a hit ballad that appears on the group’s self-titled third album. The song was written by members Matt Ramsey, Trevor Rosen, and Brad Tursi with Josh Osborne. ASCAP President Paul Williams surprised the group and Osborne with the news on Monday. Old Dominion are also nominated for Album of the Year and Vocal Group of the Year at the 2020 CMA Awards on Wednesday.
