Adam Hood Bad Days Better

“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”

“In other words, this is like getting a new Adam Hood album, and Adam Hood/Brent Cobb collaborative album, and a Blackberry Smoke side project all rolled up into one. Many people in the Adam Hood orbit who respect the songwriting of the Opelika, Alabama native answered the call to make Bad Days Better a career effort.” – Saving Country Music
