– Adam Doleac will release his debut album, "Barstool Whiskey Wonderland," on Arista Nashville/Sony Music Nashville on Sept. 30.
The song from the CD, "Girl In Love," is available now
"I couldn't be more excited to start the roll out of my debut album, 'Barstool Whiskey Wonderland,'" Doleac said. "So much hard work and time and life has gone into making it. More than anything, I wanted it to sound like me. I tried to create my own little world, or 'wonderland' I should say, and I think I did that. 'Barstool Whiskey Wonderland' is 18 songs, full of my favorite lyrics, titles, and most importantly, my favorite emotions. I hope you listen to it top to bottom, and then I hope you do it again."
Among the 18 tracks are "Another" and "Famous," plus 11 new songs including "Girl In Love." Doleac co-wrote every song on the album aside from his collaboration with Danielle Bradbery, "Fake Love," which was penned by an all-star lineup made up of HARDY, Ryan Hurd, Maren Morris and Jordan Schmidt.
Written by Doleac, Jared Keim and Derrick Southerland, "Girl In Love" arrives today. Doleac performed it for the first time live during his appearance at the Grand Ole Opry on June 29. Watch here.
"'Girl In Love' is about exactly that...a girl in love," Doleac said. "When it's real, nobody around her has to ask. It's in the way she moves, and in the way she looks at you. One of my favorite lines in the song is, 'to be so complicated, it's pretty easy to know when you're doin' it right.' In my experience, that's so true. She'll tell you everything you need to know, without ever saying a word. It's the most powerful thing in the world. For girls, it's about the feeling of falling in. For guys, it's about making sure you're ready to catch her. And just like the hook says, '... there ain't nothin' like a Girl In Love."
Doleac will be touring and plans to announce a headlining tour later this summer.
