Doleac releases new song

Friday, December 13, 2019 – Newcomer Adam Doleac released a new song today, "Neon Fools."

But this is actually not his new single. Doleac, who just signed to Sony Music Nashville's Arista Nashville imprint, released his debut single, "Famous," which goes for adds at country radio on Jan. 13.

Doleac wrote "Neon Fools" with Andy Skib and Thomas Finchum. The song is about two people who are "well aware of the consequences they're in, but don't care," explains the Mississippi-born singer-songwriter. "This song is exactly what it is: Giving in to each other romantically, not because it's right, but because of how right it feels."

"I think it's safe to say that many of us have allowed the neon setting of a crowed club to fool us into getting involved in situations. And when folks hear this track, wherever it takes them, I hope they love it."

A Hattiesburg, Miss. native, Doleac became interested in music in college. He received a scholarship to the University of Southern Mississippi where he not only played baseball, but wrote songs with his teammates and learned to play guitar. After he began playing hometown area gigs, Doleac posted a performance of one of his songs on YouTube, catching the attention of Sony/ATV Music Publishing. A co-writer of songs recorded by Kane Brown, Darius Rucker, and Hootie and the Blowfish, Doleac has toured with Carrie Underwood, Chris Young and Brown, among others.

Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: With or without band, Isbell satisfies – Usually, when an artist performs without his regular backing band, it becomes about mathematics of subtraction. That artist is armed with far fewer artistic weapons at his/her disposal, after all. In Jason Isbell's case, though, when he performed with just his wife and fiddler Amanda Shires, it was more about substitution than subtraction.... »»»
Concert Review: Grammy nominations aside, Yola, Kiah are the real deal – Grammy nominations do not make the artist, but Yola and opener Amythyst Kiah underscored time and again on this night that the honors were well deserved. In fact, Yola and Kiah's other group, Our Native Daughters, are nominated in the same category - Best American Roots. Yola has three other nominations as well. The clear winners... »»»
