Adam Hood premieres a new track from his upcoming Somewhere in Between, exclusively with C&I.

Singer-songwriter Adam Hood has found a comfortable groove for himself as a writer for Dave Cobb’s label imprint Low Country Sound with song credits for marquee acts such as Little Big Town (“Front Porch Thing”), Miranda Lambert (“Good Ol’ Days”), and Lee Ann Womack (“Same Kind of Different”). Meanwhile, he keeps up a steady touring schedule as a live performer, playing about 100 shows a year more than a decade into a career highlighted by a three-year stint opening for Leon Russell.

His latest, Somewhere in Between, out October 12, was produced by Oran Thornton and features guitarist Pat McLaughlin, bassist Lex Price, and drummer Jerry Roe.

Another C&I favorite, Brent Cobb, shows up on the rocking second track, “She Don’t Love Me.”

“That song came from a few days spent with Brent Cobb and Josh Abbott,” Hood says of the collaboration. “Brent and I flew out to Texas and spent the majority of a week with Josh hanging, writing, and playing a few shows. We wrote a handful of songs, but this one is closer to ‘my style,’ for lack of better description. It’s been a while, but to the best of my memory, the song started as a musical idea. We had the riff, and the words came together in the writing. If you have a good riff, just put a little heartbreak and Houston in it and you got yourself a song!”
