About Adam Hood: The tapestry of Southern music in America is rich, vivid and diverse. Adam Hood is an artist who exudes that substantial musical lineage each time he straps on his Telecaster for a show or picks up his pen to write a song. The roots of his Opelika, AL upbringing inform his musicality and guide his soul-stirring lyrics. He paints the characters of his songs with the wisdom that can only be derived from thousands of miles spent behind the steering wheel chasing the next musical adventure from one coast to the next. He delivers the words he writes with verve, passion and a smooth, confident voice that only comes from an artist who truly believes in each word springing forth to the microphone.
Hood has carved out a career that has taken him from playing for tips acoustically in his hometown as a teenager to fronting a band on the biggest stages of roots music. Adam Hood has a yearning deep inside, a calling, to share his take on what country music should sound like. It is a soulful and profound version of the genre that mixes in elements of assorted styles to create something uniquely Adam Hood. A sound he describes as “southern songs. “It’s southern music,’ Hood relates, “The soulful side of southern music, the country side of southern music, the genuineness of southern culture, and how I grew up. It’s what I’ve always done.” While initially making waves as a performer of his own songs, other folks singing those songs over the past decade have added a new layer to Adam Hood’s formidable career. Always a capable and relatable songwriter, Hood has found his way by adeptly crafting songs that created stirring scenes and powerful emotions. An impressive roster of artists has recorded songs from Adam Hood’s pen, including Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Whiskey Myers, Cody Jinks and Travis Tritt.
While Hood’s songwriting profile has continued to shine over the years, his own recorded and touring output has remained a vital part of the broader country music landscape. Hood’s latest album is titled Bad Days Better. An effort that was recorded in the famed Capricorn Studios in Macon, GA, with Brent Cobb at the helm. The vibes and feel of the historic studio helped Cobb and Hood guide this project alongside the energy of past studio inhabitants such as Otis Redding. The Allman Brothers Band, Marshall Tucker Band and Charlie Daniels Band, among others. Hood’s own independent label, fittingly called Adam Hood’s Southern Songs weaves his present day among the echoes of his heroes and biggest influences, creating a sound, style and moment that is all his own.
Honing in on Adam Hood’s bedrock musical qualities pushed the Bad Days Better project forward with a true sense of purpose. The ghosts of consoles and melodies past imbued each song laid down over four days. In some ways, this experience culminated the myriad of experiences that led Adam Hood to this place in his life. The freshly sober family man recording inside the same walls as the musical icons of his youth, the go-to songwriter of the moment when an artist wants something with grit and groove, acclaimed live performer that’s packed out thousands of venues…all of it is found in the music Hood wrote for this record. An exceptional cast of collaborators that included Brit Turner, Richard Turner and Charlie Starr of Blackberry Smoke helped lay down the musical tracks. And the background vocals are singularly provided by Miranda Lambert.
The songs Hood wrote for this most recent collection demanded such a serious lineup of session help. Bad Days Better is a deeply personal album. Adam Hood has lived a life full of hills and valleys and spent years living in the valleys while trying to appear to the outward world that he permanently resided on the hills. His countenance and resignation to be honest with himself in all facets of life led to the rawest lyrics of his career. “I speak more than I want to sometimes,” he says,” It makes me nervous to play it because I know it’s a vulnerable moment.” That vulnerability and honesty in his music is another layer to the Southern musical story for which Adam Hood continues writing new chapters.
Adam Hood will always be found where there’s a stage, sharing his version of country music. The essence, the emotion, the spirit and the institution of Southern music reside in Hood’s soul. He will continue to write, perform and share that mastery with his audience for years to come. “Music should get under your skin and make you think and make you feel,” he exclaims, ”Some people get what I’m saying, some don’t. I want to say what I feel and hope others feel the same way.”
