Old Dominion’s Day On a Boat Started Out as a Joke

The guys in Old Dominion say their new song “I Was On A Boat That Day” has been around since their debut hit “Break Up With Him” — but they just thought it was a joking title.

Lead singer Matthew Ramsey shares the story, “We had this idea we were kicking it around for a long time. And we bring it up and shoot it down. I don’t know how many times we decided not to write this song. And then for whatever reason, when we were in Asheville, North Carolina, making this album, it came up again and we sort of laughed like it was a joke, but then our co-writers Shane McAnally, and Josh Osborne helped us see the light that it actually was not a joke title. It was actually a really fun title.”

Matthew adds, “So we wrote it and really liked it. We took it upstairs to record it. We had this idea that it needed to sound like a party and needed to sound a little, you know, intoxicated, so we drank some tequila and went in and did our best little party dance song and we had a really great time recording it and hope you have a great time listening to it.”
