Old Dominion put a raw, heart-on-their sleeve spin on their latest single during ACM Presents: Our Country, offering up the moving strains of “Some People Do.”

Sung by the hit-making band’s Matthew Ramsey and with Trevor Rosen joining him on piano, the reflective ballad spoke of change for the better and holding out hope — two things on the entire world’s mind at the moment.

The show aired in place of the postponed 55th ACM Awards, which was moved to September in light of the global coronavirus pandemic, and as such there was a noticeable twinge of disappointment in Ramsey’s voice. Fans watching at home were not disappointed, however, as he crooned the chart-rising track with a welcome touch of empathy.

The band recently released an equally-impactful video for the track, traveling to Los Angeles to help celebrity groomer Jason Schneidman give out haircuts to the homeless. Much more than just a trim, the cuts help restore a sense of dignity — and that same hope which underpins “Some People Do.”
