In the summer of 2024, the six-time CMA vocal group of the year winners will open ODIE’s at 1919 Division Street near Nashville’s Midtown area. The property was previously the longtime location of the venue Rebar.

The idea was the result of conversations between Old Dominion member Trevor Rosen and his good friend Ty Hauter, CEO of Good Time Design. Rosen recalled the good times the band had nearly a decade earlier, performing at Hauter’s Moonshine Flats and Moonshine Beach in San Diego.

From there, Hauter and OD members Rosen, Matthew Ramsey, Whit Sellers, Brad Tursi and Geoff Sprung began dreaming of creating a place outside of the hustle and bustle of downtown Nashville’s bar scene, a place that more closely recalled a time when Music Row-area songwriters and musicians would regularly meet up a local bars, talk music and play songs.

“Midtown in Nashville has played such a role in the history of our band,” Ramsey told Billboard via a statement. “From chilling at the bar after writing, to playing weekly into the wee hours of the morning. Even recently playing Whiskey Jam to launch our tour. It’s an important neighborhood for not only upcoming artists and writers, but for local people or tourists who want a good place they know they can go and have a good time. Odie’s will be that neighborhood bar for us all.”

“We’ve obviously found success as a band, but we really got our start in the songwriting community. Odie’s will have touches of our band’s journey for sure, but at its heart it’ll just be a great place to hang in the heart of the midtown area where we spent so many years finding friends and collaborators and trying to our craft,” Rosen also told Billboard in a statement.

Hauter graduated from Eastern Illinois University in 1987, and got his start in larger-scale hospitality operations while working in the Chicago nightclub scene, prior to moving to San Diego in 1990 and running entertainment venues in the area. Hauter founded Good Time Design in 2006, initially focusing on venue design, construction and entertainment, before moving further into operations. Along the way Hauter began working with MTV’s Spring Break and TRL as well as acts including Blake Shelton, Pink and Ziggy Marley. He opened Moonshine Flats in 2014 and Moonshine Beach in 2016 — those venues have featured performances from artists including Old Dominion, Morgan Wallen, Cody Johnson and Luke Combs. Under Hauter’s leadership, Good Time Design opened six additional venues from 2020 until 2022. He now operates several restaurants and bars in California and Tennessee, with plans to expand to Las Vegas with a larger-scale entertainment concept in 2024.

On Friday night (Dec. 15), Old Dominion will bring their headlining No Bad Vibes arena tour to Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, performing not only several of their hits, but also album cuts from their latest project, Memory Lane.
