Old Dominion has had one heck of a run since releasing Meat And Candy in late 2015. The five-man band has opened for Kenny Chesney, scored two No. 1 singles and are currently working another song up the charts.
The guys recently sat down with Entertainment Weekly to talk about writing "No Such Thing As A Broken Heart" and the creative process behind its new video.
"We didn't know what to write that day," frontman Matthew Ramsey told the magazine. "But for some reason, I said the line, 'I wonder if Jack and Diane ever made it.' So we just kept writing, not knowing what the song would really be, until Trevor [Rosen] said, 'You gotta love like there's no such thing as a broken heart!' That's when we knew what the song was gonna be about."

As the single got traction, it became clear they'd be making a video. Coming up with a concept proved problematic, however. "We couldn't come up with much for this one," Matthew told the publication. "Everything seemed so serious." That's when director Steve Condon stepped in and suggested they visually interpret every line in the song. "From there, he just went nuts," Matthew recalled.
