“I can see you / Your brown skin shining in the sun / You got the top pulled down
Radio on baby / I can tell you my love for you will still be strong / After the boys of summer have gone
Whether you know the original sung by Don Henley or the Ataris cover, “Boys of Summer” is an iconic song. Recently, up and coming country singer Adam Hambrick had the opportunity to cover the classic written by Henley and Mike Campbell in a new “1 Mic 1 Take”.
Recorded at the famous Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, in a very intimate setting, Hambrick shows us his vocal range while putting a country twist on the song. The artist shows us his appreciation of Garth Brooks by casually adding his name into the song. The original lyrics are, “Out on the road today/I saw a deadhead sticker on a Cadillac.” Instead of a “deadhead sticker”, the singer-songwriter changed the lyrics to “Garth Brooks sticker on a Cadillac”. Brooks’ album ‘No Fences” was a favorite of Hambrick’s growing up.
The video also highlights the guitar playing skills of the “Rockin’ All Night Long” singer as he was accompanied by an acoustic guitar, along with two members of his band. ‘“Boys of Summer” has always been a song I love to cover- hope I made Mr. Henley proud!”, the singer-songwriter shared in a recent press release.
This performance was a treat and shows why the talented singer is someone you’ll want to keep your eye on as we await his anticipated debut album. For all of the great covers for 1 Mic 1 Take click here.
Hambrick has a busy spring and summer ahead. He will not only be making appearances at Stage Coach and CMA Festival, but he will also be making his Grand Ole Opry debut on May 11th.
