I am really late with this one. You all probably remember the CMIL Benefit for City of Hope, that was held at The Rutledge in Nashville. That was nearly two weeks ago. There were 10 fantastic artists on stage that night, and I promised that even though it would take me a little while, I was going to get something up here about every one of them.
To this point, I have told you about Whitney Duncan, Gwen Sebastian, Mallary Hope, Johnny Bulford, Caitlin Lynn, the Carter Twins, Jason Jones, and Jesse Lee. Today, It’s Adam Gregory, and if I have time, I’ll get Matt Stillwell up later this afternoon, or first thing in the morning.
This was the first I’d really heard much about Adam Gregory. And I’m sorry to say, it was the first time I ever paid much attention to him and to his music. I’ve been missing out on a lot here. Adam’s bio tells us the he is a relative newcomer to the U.S. and to Nashville, but that he has been a successful country music performer since his early teens.
He was just 13 years old when he got a major label deal, and he made his move to Nashville in 2007. He was a Gold-selling artist back in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. At 24 years old, his bio tells us “Gregory is well on his way to making a name for himself in the States as well.”
How in the world have i missed this kid? I get one press release after the next, and yet Adam was a almost a total stranger to me when I got to see him perform at The Rutledge. He has made three appearances on the Grand Ole Opry, done performances at the CMA Music Festival, and made red carpet appearances at both the CMA and ACM Awards.
And it’s definitely time for Adam to make an appearance on Country’s Chatter. From Adam’s web site, here’s what he has to say: "I’ve learned so much and met so many amazing people during this whole experience," says Adam. "I believe God put me on this earth to sing. He’s blessed me with a gift, and I’m so humbled to share it with people. Right now, IÕm just moving forward and really excited about what the future holds for me."
I hope you will all visit Adam’s web site, listen to his music, watch his video, and call your radio station – let them know that you heard Adam Gregory, and what you think about him.
Before I get on to Matt, let me give you a little Adam Gregory (live) at KSOP radio, with “Then She Cried.”
Adam is without a doubt a country artist to keep your eye on. I love the song, “What It Takes,” and can’t understand what I haven’t heard that one on the radio.
I’ll be back later today or in the morning with something on Matt Stillwell, our closing act at The City of Hope benefit this year. I’ll be seeing Matt on Friday night, Feb. 25, too … so you’ll probably be seeing more photos of him real soon.
Talk to you all later!
