Here at New York Country Swag, we pride ourselves on being tastemakers and championing artists in all stages of their career, but we get especially excited when one of our favorite rising artists finds mainstream success. Our 2018 Artist to Watch, Adam Doleac is doing just that!
His single “Famous” found its way to number 1 on the Sirius XM The Highway Hot 30 Countdown, and we are eagerly awaiting a full project from the singer-songwriter. Just today, he released two new songs, “Solo” and “Wake Up Beautiful” to give us another taste of what’s to come.
Both tracks are romantic and sentimental in their own right. The former, “SOLO” is Doleac’s plea to a girl to stay with him, even though it wasn’t, at first, meant to be anything serious. In the slow-burn track, the country crooner expresses his vulnerability through his vocals and the heartfelt lyrics. At his pop-up New York City show on Monday night, Doleac told the audience that SOLO stood for “Stay Over Lay Over”
“I don’t want to be solo / I don’t want to watch the sun come up alone / Nah, you ain’t gotta go home / Wait three days to talk on the phone / Just cause the night is over / Don’t mean I don’t want you next to me / I don’t want to be solo / Stay over, lay over here with me”
The latter, “Wake Up Beautiful” is a confident and charming love song, featuring a catchy hook and chorus. Doleac gushes over a girl, singing compliments as lyrics and explaining, “I bet you wake up beautiful.” Like his single, “Famous,” “Wake Up Beautiful” will have all the girls swooning and wishing for a partner, who puts them on a pedestal as Doleac does in his music. The singer continues to prove his staying power with two more solid tracks to add to his collection of impressive songs.
He is on the road this summer, making stops in Colorado, Arizona, California, Arkansas, and more. We caught the singer’s set earlier this week, first at Hunter Mountain’s Taste of Country Festival and again, on Monday night in New York City at his headlining show. It was great to see how much the singer-songwriter has grown as an artist since we hosted our first ever Swag Session with him back in 2017. To hear more about both new songs, watch our interview below.
“SOLO” and “Wake Up Beautiful” are now available everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a listen below and check out more new recently released music here on our ‘New Country Music’ playlist. Be sure to give the playlist a follow for your weekly new country music fix.
