For Adam Hambrick, most of his lazy Corinth, Mississippi Sundays growing up were filled with old hymns and southern gospel tunes gathered around an upright piano with his family. Then at age 12 when Adam's Papaw gave him a 1962 Gibson B-25, there was never a question what he wanted to do with his life.
In the fall of 2003, when Hambrick enrolled in the University of Central Arkansas, he really began to work toward his ambitions as a performing songwriter. He became a regular in the Little Rock clubs, which would always be packed with Adam's fraternity brothers and the party they always brought with them.
After college, Adam got a real job working as a digital media specialist for a college ministry. He all but stopped playing live shows and focused his musical efforts on leading worship at the church he and his wife attended. This proved to be a great investment of his attention, as he began to develop his skills in ways that he never had before. This growth led him into production of a 10-song project called "Fighting from the Ground," which hit iTunes in late 2010.
In May of 2011, Adam received an introduction email from EMI songwriter/producer Jeremy Stover. Stover had heard about "Fighting From the Ground” from country star Justin Moore and was looking for a young writer to work with and develop. This opened a series of doors that led Adam to a publishing deal with Sony/ATV, a duet cut on Justin Moore's latest album w/ Miranda Lambert ("Old Habits"), and a move to Nashville in 2013 to turn his full focus toward his music. That focus is lending itself to exciting new opportunities and a bright future as a writer and artist.
Adam's newest project "Wheels or Wings," (produced by Jeremy Stover and Andrew DeRoberts) is an exciting blend of pop and traditional country elements around songs that are catchy, thoughtful and well-crafted. "Wheels or Wings” is now available on iTunes, Spotify and other digital retailers.
