Adam Wright is a two time Grammy nominated songwriter, singer, producer, and musician. His rooted, literary style, has earned him a stellar reputation among some of Nashville’s most well-respected artists, producers, and writers. His songs have been recorded by country music icons such as Alan Jackson, Lee Ann Womack and Garth Brooks as well as nontraditional newcomers like Brent Cobb and Aubrie Sellers.
“All The Trouble”, recorded by Lee Ann Womack and written by Adam, Womack and Waylon Payne, was nominated for Best American Roots Song at the 61st Grammy Awards. The song “The Lonely, The Lonesome and The Gone”, also recorded by Womack, (Wright/ Knowles), is the title track to Womack’s latest album which earned a Grammy nomination for Americana Album of the Year.
The song “So You Don’t Have To Love Me Anymore”, written by Wright and Jay Knowles, was recorded by Alan Jackson and nominated for “Country Song of the Year” at the 55th annual Grammy Awards. Adam also co-produced Jackson’s critically acclaimed ‘The Bluegrass Album’. His song “Thunder and Lightning”, recorded by Lonesome River Band, was nominated for “Song of the Year” at the 2016 International Bluegrass Music Association Awards.
Adam’s work with The Wrights, a duo with his wife Shannon, is still highly regarded for its songwriting, harmonies and production. Their debut single “Down This Road” was listed as one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s top ten country singles the year of its release. The Wrights recorded four studio albums and toured with Alan Jackson, Loretta Lynn, Raul Malo (The Mavericks), Little Big Town, and others before taking a break from the road to focus on writing and family.
Adam’s own full length solo album ‘Dust’ was released in June of 2018. The deep, dark 11 song narrative was co-produced with Wright’s long-time friend and collaborator Park Chisolm. Dust is full of characters in mostly dire situations and is delivered, vocally and musically, with the subtlety that comes from master craftsmanship. Adam points out that one of the lessons he learned from writing with legendary songwriter Guy Clark was that “once you know how, you have to figure out why.” ‘Dust’ is Wright’s answer to why.
On April 2, 2019, Adam released two more collections of his songs, “Queen of the Meadow” and “Big Ideas from a Small Office Overlooking Legendary Studio B”.
