If there is one thing country music fans love then it is a songwriter. One of the greatest things about festivals such as C2C is that we get to see not just a whole bunch of artists but songwriters too and in some cases both. I am surprised that Adam Hambrick is not on the CMA Songwriters Series line up this year but am just happy he is attending C2C at all. Adam is an already well established songwriter having penned songs for Justin Moore (Somebody Else Will), Lindsay Ell ( Waiting On You), Eli Young Band, Miranda Lambert and Dan + Shay (How Not To) to name a few.
Adam released his debut single as an artist last year titled Rockin’ All Night Long and is released via Capitol Records Nashville / Buena Vista Records. The song was inspired by his now three year old daughter when she was a baby and had to be rocked all night long. Now that is something I as a parent can relate to haha.
Adam Hambrick grew up in between Mississippi and Arkansas and cites his influences as Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, John Mayer and The Foo Fighters. Adam grew up singing in a church where his father was a Baptist pastor and his mum played piano – so music was pretty much with him all the time and in his blood.
Adam graduated from the University of Central Arkansas and made an appearance on Good Morning Arkansas where fellow Arkansas-native and country star Justin Moore happened to be watching. Justin was so taken by Adam both as a vocalist and as a songwriter that he got his producer Jeremy Stover to get in contact with Adam. This prompted Adam to move to Nashville with his wife and pursue a career in music full time.
As well as writing an impressive number of songs for other artists, Hambrick has also shared the stages with artists including Brett Young, Jordan Davis, LANCO, and more. Adam is currently working on his debut album with producers Andrew DeRoberts (James Blunt, Miley Cyrus) and Paul DiGiovanni (Blake Shelton, Jordan Davis).
We cannot wait to see Adam at C2C Festival and hear the stories behind some of the amazing songs that he has written both for himself and other artists. Adam will be a real treat to see.
