We’re premiering the music video for his latest single: “Lost in a Country Song.”
Adam Warner is a man who doesn’t believe in half-measures.
The Lawrenceville, Illinois native was born into a family of farmers who valued hard work, hunting, music, military service — and fishing. So when Adam set his sights on carrying on family traditions, he didn’t stop competing until he had entered 36 fishing tournaments, and had ten Top 10 finishes under his belt.
And when he dove headfirst into music after a five-year stint with the U.S. Marines, he prepared himself by studying audio engineering at Middle Tennessee State University, where he officially began crafting his own country-rock catalog. (Unofficially, he’d started his own band back in Illinois when he was just 13, inspired by outlaws and innovators like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and George Jones.) Then he decided to make Nashville his home base, and launch his career smack dab in the middle of Music City.
Adam had his first major success in 2018 when the Tennessee Titans dubbed his anthem “Welcome to the South” their official welcome song for opposing teams, and projected the track throughout Nissan Stadium before every home game. Since then, he has shared concert stages with some of country music’s best, including Lee Brice, Jamey Johnson, Jerrod Niemann, American Young, Midland, Darrell Singletary, Neil McCoy, Rhonda Vincent and Trace Adkins.
Adkins was especially impressed by the ambitious up-and-comer, and invited Warner to join him on tour. The two artists later collaborated on a new recording of Adkins’ hit “Semper Fi,” which pays homage to former and active military.
Following the release of several singles and full-length projects, including his 2021 album Big Storm and a well-received cover of the Charlie Daniels classic “Long-Haired Country Boy,” Adam announced his 2022 album What We’re Known For will strike a deft balance between the rousing-rebel country rock of “Catching’ Hell” to the upbeat and playful romantic sound of his next single, “Lost in a Country Song,” which will be released Wednesday, Aug. 17.
Adam’s guiding philosophy?
“Do what you love and love what you do,” he asserts. “There’s no restart button. One of the greatest things about music is that it lives forever, my songs will be around long after I’m gone. But while I’m here, I want to help people live in the moment. At the end of the day, if I can play a part in one person’s good day, if I can make some laugh, cry or feel something, I know I’ve done my job as an artist.”
Adam joined us recently in the C&I Studio to talk about his career, his influences — and his choice of a very special partner for his latest music video.
