About Adam Hood
After gaining a reputation as a songwriter within Nashville -- somebody who amassed credits, not hits, while working with Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, and Lee Ann Womack -- Adam Hood made a splash as a recording artist with the 2018 release of Somewhere in Between. This wasn't his first album -- he released many independent records during the 2000s and 2010s -- but Somewhere in Between was a statement of purpose, showcasing his facility with the classic Americana form and his sly empathy as a writer.
A native of Opelika, Alabama, Hood rooted his sound in the Red Dirt country of Texas, borrowing from Lone Star country and Louisiana soul in nearly equal measure. He started playing guitar professionally at the age of 16, playing regularly at local restaurants. Hood maintained a home in Northport, Alabama but made inroads in Nashville. He put out his first album, the live 21 to Enter, in 2002 on Orchard. In 2007, Hood released Different Groove, a debut produced by Pete Anderson that appeared on Little Dog.
Hood signed with Carnival Records in 2011, releasing the album The Shape of Things that year, supporting the record by appearing on that year's Willie Nelson Throwdown Tour. The indie album Welcome to the Big World appeared in 2014.
Hood inked a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Nashville in 2016, then aligned himself with Dave Cobb's Low Country Sound. In 2018, he released Somewhere in Between, which was produced by Dave Cobb. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
