Following their debut on the Mane Stage at the 10thAnniversary of Stagecoach Festival on May 1, the enormity of the weekend sank in  for OD with a win for Breakthrough Group/Duo of the Year on the ACC Awards on FOX.

“When we started this band, winning awards never crossed our minds,” says Matthew. “We just wanted to make the best music we could. But winning this award really shows us that the years of work we have put into this are paying off in ways we never dreamed of. We owe so much to our families, our management team, our record label, country radio and our FANS for embracing what we do and making us feel at home in the country music family!”

The win follows on the heels of earlier 2016 award wins at the Academy of Country Music Awards for Best New Vocal Duo/Group of the Year and the Association of Independent Music Publisher Awards (AIMPs) last month for Artist/Writer of the Year. Additionally, Matthew Ramsey, Trevor Rosen and Brad Tursi all individually took home CMA Triple Play Awards presented to top songwriters who have penned more than three No. 1 hits within a one year period in the Country format.

With an estimated 160 dates on the books in 2016—and it being a lighter year than 2015—OD are already looking to their next studio album, taking advantage of a break in touring to again join GRAMMY-winning producer Shane McAnally, their co-conspirator on Meat and Candy, in the studio to work on their upcoming second album. Trevor shared with The Press-Enterprise, “We’re working on new music. We’re writing and working up some new stuff and we’ll hopefully start recording in the fall.”
