Old Dominion were the guest recording artists on NBC's hit series Songland on Wednesday (August 21st) as they looked for a song to be featured in a new Jeep brand commercial. The band, along with Jeep/FCA CMO Olivier Francois, chose Songland contestant Katelyn Tarver‘s “Young” to be released and featured in the 90-second commercial, in which Tarver appears as a character.
Old Dominion lead singer Matthew Ramsey said, “Songwriting is what this band is built on. Our love for writing songs and for the people who write them is what got us where we are today. We jumped at the chance to be a part of Songland because it meant that the public would get a glimpse of what we have known for years: Without songwriters there would be no music.”
Songland provides talented up-and-coming songwriters with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to collaborate with visionary music producers who are responsible for today’s biggest hits.
“Young” is now available to stream on iTunes.
