Brad Tursi ’97 Wins Major Country Music Award
COVID kept the live audience away from this week’s 55th annual Academy of Country Music Awards at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.
But a nationwide television audience watched Old Dominion walk off with 2 huge awards: Best Group and Best Song (“One Man Band”).
Country music may not be huge in Westport. But we’re hugely proud of Old Dominion. Lead guitarist Brad Tursi is a 1997 graduate of Staples High School, where he was known not as a musician, but as a soccer star.
More than 2 decades after he wore the blue and white, he’s still kicking it.
