Their current, Top-5-and-climbing second single, “One Man Band,” was released as a fan favorite with more than 127 million streams and performed on “Good Morning America.” The first single “Make It Sweet” reached No. 1 on  Billboard Country Airplay and Country Aircheck/Mediabase charts, making it Old Dominion’s seventh No. 1 song.
