Adam Hood To Make Grand Ole Opry Debut
Acclaimed country singer and songwriter, Adam Hood, will be making his Grand Ole Opry debut on October 22. While Hood has helped pen songs for superstars like Miranda Lambert, The Oak Ridge Boys and Cody Jinks, who have all graced the Opry stage, this will be Adam’s first time in the Opry circle. Joining the lineup of Opry members Bill Anderson, Lauren Alaina and Dustin Lynch with more to be announced, Hood’s debut will certainly be one to remember. Fans can purchase tickets now at opry.com.
When asked about the history of the Opry and how it feels to grace the stage icons like Hank Williams, Loretta Lynn, Clint Black and Carrie Underwood have played on, Hood said, “I pride myself on being a product of my influence, a student of the masters and someone who concerns themself with the craft of songwriting. Everyone who is doing it the best seems to come across that stage at some point in time. It’s one thing to write for these people and it’s an awesome feeling to now be one of those people. This is a nice, solid pat on the back. It’s an acceptance into the industry that we work in and I feel honored to be invited to play.”
Hood’s Opry debut will be on the heels of his fifth studio album release Bad Days Better, out September 16. The album is currently at No. 29 and climbing on the Americana Album chart. “Harder Stuff” featuring Miranda Lambert peaked at No. 12 on the Americana Singles chart and is currently No. 15 at Texas Regional Radio.

“When an artist comes out from behind the songwriting curtain, stamping his name on the front of the album cover rather than residing in the proverbial liner notes, the world stops and stares. Adam Hood took that leap in 2002 and has continued paving his own path in country music for nearly two decades.” – American Songwriter
“Everybody loves a story after it’s told. They love watching the movies about the struggling artist during their toughest times like ‘Walk The Line’ or ‘Ray,’ but why? Because they already know the ending. Adam is in the middle of his actual swan song.” – Brent Cobb on Saving Country Music
“A sweet jam that’s as smooth and unhurried as a lush Mississippi summer night, Hood revels in being his own person, unconcerned by others who ‘move at the speed of light.'” – Billboard on “Speed of the South”
“Hood has songwriting credentials to spare, with cuts by Miranda, Cody Jinks, The Oaks, Travis Tritt, Whiskey Myers, LBT, Lee Ann Womack, Luke Combs, Riley Green, Anderson East, Frankie Ballard and Drake White, among others. This Dixie-fried band bopper has a groove-soaked, funky backbeat that is wildly infectious.” – Robert K. Oermann, MusicRow on “Business with Jesus.”
