Matthew Ramsey: The Country Star Is Worth More Than You Think

Country star Matthew Ramsey started out the way many artists do: as a songwriter for other, more famous musicians. According to Wide Open Country and Billboard, he co-wrote "Chainsaw" for The Band Perry, "Say You Do" for Dierks Bentley, "Make You Miss Me" for Sam Hunt, "Save it for a Rainy Day" for Kenny Chesney, and "Neon" for Chris Young, just to name a few.

In 2007, Ramsey formed the band Old Dominion with Trevor Rosen, Whit Sellers, Geoff Sprung, and Brad Tursi, per All Music. However, it wasn't until 2015 that the band hit upon major success. That year, the group's single, "Break Up with Him," peaked at the number one spot on Billboard's Country Airplay charts (via Billboard).

Though Ramsey isn't the most famous singer, his recent success and popularity has helped him stand out in the world of country music. He is the true "comeback kid." As he told Rolling Stone in 2019, "I went from being a broke songwriter to selling out arenas." And Ramsey has the earnings to prove it.

Matthew Ramsey has an impressive net worth

As of 2021, Matthew Ramsey has a net worth of $20 million, per Idol Networth. Most of his earnings came from touring with his band, Old Dominion. His other band mates are also making significant earnings, albeit less than Ramsey. Net Worth Post estimates Trevor Rosen's net worth at $1.3 million and Brad Tursi's net worth at $4 million.

Ramsey is reportedly generous with his time and money. In his interview with Rolling Stone, the singer revealed that he once helped out his hometown by providing 82,500 meals to people in need. The donation for the meals came from The Ramsey Foundation, which Ramsey and his wife founded in 2012.

Though Ramsey has his own Spotify page and has released one single on his own, "It's Christmas Time and We're Still Here," the singer is sticking with Old Dominion. The band has nearly 5 million monthly listeners on Spotify, and six of their songs have been country radio Number Ones, according to Rolling Stone. They are also set to tour several U.S. states in summer 2021 (via Songkick)
