Adam Doleac

Growing up in Hattiesburg, Mississippi in a small town populated mostly by family can leave an impression on you. Friday night lights, work ethic, and a strong relationship with parentals are the foundation of this now Sony Nashville artist. It's not lost on Adam the foundations of country living and the lifestyle of his Mississippi home. Adam shares the memories of growing in the time of Hurricane Katrina and his "lucky" moments that lead up to him as a songwriter/artist with a unique voice. Authenticity and his identity in songs may have set Adam apart from the rest, but also his work ethic of running his own business as an early empire could have contributed to his appeal to major labels. Adam also shares that when you realize your leverage, you're able to turn down major recording deals. Even when it means fulfilling a dream or the possibility of becoming a nightmare.
