About David Adam Byrnes:
Country Music has been all that David Adam Byrnes has ever known. One of his earliest memories is attending a George Strait concert and really hearing a George Strait song for the first time. From that day forward, he would always take his cowboy hat to school, earning him the nickname of “George Strait” amongst his peers. After spending high school graduation night opening up for the legendary Hank Williams, Jr., Byrnes packed his bags and headed to Nashville, TN.
After many nights in Broadway Honky Tonks, Byrnes signed a publishing and artist development deal and found himself writing with hit songwriters such as Josh Thompson, Chris Young and Billy Montana. After building enough material, Byrnes’ released his first full-length album Premium Country. The debut single from the record “Sweet Distraction” reached the Top 20 on The MusicRow Country Breakout Chart and Top 65 on Billboard Country Airplay.
In the fall of 2018, Byrnes’ sent his 1st Single to Texas Radio to complement his heavy touring in the region. The song “Beer Bucket List” produced by Trent Willmon, went all the way to #1, earning him nominations for “New Male Vocalist of the Year” at both the Texas Country Music Awards and Texas Regional Radio Awards. David now has eight consecutive #1 songs on the Texas Regional Radio Report, making him the first artist to achieve the feat, starting with their debut single to the chart.
In late 2022, Taste of Country deemed Byrnes one of the Lone Star States most intriguing artists at the moment. He has a brand new album slated to come out later in 2023.
