Sony signs Doleac

Tuesday, October 8, 2019 – Sony Music Nashville announces the signing of singer/songwriter Adam Doleac to the Arista Nashville imprint.

Doleac's "Famous," which he co-wrote with Andy Skib and Bobby Hamrick, will officially ship to country radio as his first Arista Nashville single on Dec. 16.

A co-writer of songs recorded by such stars as Kane Brown ("Pull It Off"), Darius Rucker ("Don't), and Hootie and the Blowfish ("Rollin'), Doleac has toured with Carrie Underwood, Chris Young and Brown.

A Hattiesburg, Miss. native, Doleac became impassioned with music in college. He received a scholarship to the University of Southern Mississippi where he not only played baseball, but wrote songs with his teammates and learned to play guitar. After he began playing hometown area gigs, Doleac posted a performance of one of his songs on YouTube, which accrued millions of views.

He made the move to Nashville, and his career quickly picked up. In 2014, SiriusXM's The Highway selected "I Put It On Ya" as an On The Horizon track. Shortly thereafter, he was offered a publishing deal with Sony/ATV.

Concert Review: For Brooks and fans, a most unusual change of pace – To say that this was a change of pace for Garth Brooks - not to mention his fans - would be an understatement of the highest degree. Brooks all but begged during the show to be playing next door at Gillette Stadium where the New England Patriots play. But, alas, Brooks exuded joy and excitement at the chance to play before about 500 people at a club,... »»»
Concert Review: LBT proves more than capable – If you have seen Little Big Town in the last decade, it could have been anywhere from a B stage at a Rib Fest to a 20,000-seat amphitheater as the opener for some of country's top acts. Their current "Nightfall" tour rightfully proves they are more than capable and well deserved being billed as a top headlining act.... »»»
