“There are plenty of songs about beer, whiskey, and we even have one about tequila,” said David Adam Byrnes. “I thought it was time to let rum have its spotlight. It was a very fun song to write and it really came to life in the studio. I’m ready to see how the fans react to it.”
“I’ve been here the last three days
Getting burnt by the sun in a Blue Chair haze
Rum running my cares away
I don’t know where she is now
She packed up and I went south
To get a little lost in a tourist town
I’m living like a local now
When in rum
You go with the flow, lay low in the tide
Take the hurt from a heartbreak, put it on ice
Pour a blue ocean view and time in a cup
Find an island girl and mix it up
When in rum…”
“When In Rum” was co-written by David Adam Byrnes, Jay Brunswick and Carlton Anderson and produced by Bart Busch and Byrnes. Busch also served as engineer and mixer. Studio musicians included Mark Beckett (drums), Jimmy Carter (bass), Bobby Terry (acoustic guitar), Bart Busch (piano) and Rob McNelley (electric guitar).

About David Adam Byrnes
David Adam Byrnes was named Country Artist of the Year Award at the 2023 Arkansas Country Music Awards. 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, Tennessee.
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 Top 20 on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart and Top 65 on Billboard Country Airplay.
In the fall of 2018, Byrnes’ sent his first 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 seven 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.https://www.countryschatter.com/2023/07/david-adam-byrnes-goes-tropical-in-carefree-new-single-when-in-rum/New ReleasesPress Release"When In Rum",David Adam Byrnes,MusicRow Country Breakout Chart
