Go Behind-the-Scenes with Old Dominion as They Record New Love Song ‘One Man Band’

Old Dominion is turning up the romance in their brand new track, “One Man Band.”

In a behind-the-scenes clip shared exclusively with PEOPLE, band members Matthew Ramsey, Trevor Rosen, Whit Sellers, Geoff Sprung and Brad Tursi bring fans along for the ride as they take the song — which they debuted on their YouTube livestream on Tuesday —  from the studio to the stage.

“The new music we are making is some of the most honest we’ve ever written,” lead singer Ramsey, 41, tells PEOPLE of working on the band’s forthcoming third studio album. “I can’t wait to hear what people think about this side of us. I don’t think our fans have heard us show the type of emotion that they will hear in ‘One Man Band.’ It’s a straight-up love song with a certain desperation to it that seems to show up in quite a few of the other new songs we have yet to release. It’s going to be a great year!”

The chorus, in which Ramsey sings the lyrics “I don’t want to be a one band / I don’t want to be a rolling stone alone / Putting miles on a run down van / Baby we could take our own show on the road,” perfectly reflects the romantic feel of the tune, but guitarist Rosen says that wasn’t exactly planned. 

“We never set out with any specific plan in mind when we write songs,” Rosen, 43, explains. “We just try to write songs that we love, that move us.”

“I am very excited about all of the new music, but one of the songs that jumped out to me right away was ‘One Man Band,'” he continues. “I found myself just wanting to keep playing it over and over. We have always operated under the philosophy that if we love a song, the fans will love it too. So far that philosophy has not steered us wrong, so I cannot wait to share ‘One Man Band’ with our fans!”

Kathy Bates’ 60-Lb Weight Loss ‘Really Helped’ with Her Post-Cancer Lymphedema

Kathy Bates’ 60-Lb Weight Loss ‘Really Helped’ with Her Post-Cancer Lymphedema

Kathy Bates’ health problems didn’t end after her breast cancer went into remission. Soon after completing her treatment, the actress developed lymphedema, a common “souvenir” after lymph node surgery but one that often goes undiscussed.

“I was terrified of getting it,” Bates, 70, told PEOPLE at the WebMD Health Heroes event on Tuesday.

The American Horror Story star said that lymphedema, the swelling of arms or legs because of a blockage in the lymphatic system, affects more than just cancer patients, but it doesn’t get much attention.

“It affects more people than ALS, MS, AIDS and Parkinson’s combined. Ten million Americans. But people just don’t know about it,” she says.

Part of the problem, Bates says, is that doctors see the swollen limbs and assume that people are just overweight, not dealing with a painful medical condition.

“Some doctors think it’s cosmetic and not life-threatening,” she says. “Doctors spend 15 to 30 minutes on the entire lymphatic system in medical school, so if someone goes to their general practitioner with swollen limbs, pain and heaviness the doctor will have no idea what it is. So it goes undiagnosed and the disease progresses for years and gets worse and worse.”

Bates worked with LE&RN, the Lymphatic Education & Research Network, to find a doctor who understood the condition.

“I’m feeling great,” she says. “I’ve lost a lot of weight and it’s really helped with my symptoms. I just still have to wear compression sleeves or guard against nicks and bug bites because that can lead to sepsis.”

But Bates knows that not all lymphedema sufferers are as lucky to have that support, so she became the national spokesperson for LE&RN to spread the word. She was honored at the WebMD event as the 2019 “Game Changer” for her work.

“When I heard those figures I got involved,” she says. “I got very pissed off because it was unfair. I’ve been asked to lend my name to a cause and I’ve made it my policy not to do that, but this is the first one I’ve felt strongly about.”

Why Ryan Lochte Said Yes to Celebrity Big Brother Viewers Are Going to See a Different Side of Him

Why Ryan Lochte Said Yes to Celebrity Big Brother Viewers Are Going to See a Different Side of Him

The first time Ryan Lochte appears on Celebrity Big Brother will actually be the second time he has been asked to compete on the CBS reality series.

But that was then. And now, Lochte — a few months fresh from successful treatment for alcohol abuse and still in the middle of training for the next Summer Olympics despite a 14-month ban — is ready for America to see a different side of him.

“He’s not how he is in the media,” his agent, Jeff Ostrow, tells PEOPLE. “He’s a great person, laid-back and down to earth.”

“I thought it would be nice for the 10 million people that regularly watch the show to get to see who Ryan is,” he says.

“People who want to see Ryan — what they think, he’s a party animal, crazy person, that’s not what they’re going to see and that’s not what Ryan is,” Ostrow continues. “And, in fact, he made a commitment to change his lifestyle a little bit and sought a little bit of help for alcohol and he doesn’t party like that.”

Lochte, 34, is one of the most decorated athletes in his sport and a superstar of past Olympics. But his prowess in the pool has often been overshadowed by his behavior on dry land, including a reality series on E! in 2013 that didn’t seem to miss a single moment of cluelessness or shenanigans.

And then there were more troubling incidents. Lochte falsely claimed he and other American swimmers had been held at gunpoint and robbed while at a gas station during the Rio Summer Games, touching off an international incident. He later apologized amid conflicting accounts of what his group had done and why security had felt the need to draw their guns.

Despite stiff punishment from U.S. Swimming, Lochte vowed to make it back to the Tokyo Summer Games in 2020 and was well on his way when he was barred last year from competition for 14 months because he received an illegally large IV infusion. (The substance itself was not banned.)

In October, Lochte underwent treatment for a years-long alcohol addiction after police were reportedly called to an incident at his hotel in California.

Ostrow, his agent, says now that the outpatient treatment lasted about a month and “went very well.”
