Title - 'Big Storm'
Artist - Adam Warner
For those not in the know, neo-traditional Country singer-songwriter, and U.S. Marine veteran Adam Warner will release his full length album Big Storm on Friday, February 26 during his week-long residency at the world famous Million Dollar Cowboy Bar in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
Warner has released three singles from Big Storm to date, including several songs written by legendary Nashville songwriter Kim Williams, including the title track.
The first song he released was his ode to the Marine Corps, 'Semper Fi,' co-written by Adam’s friend and mentor, Trace Adkins.
1. 'Big Storm'
2. 'That’s How You Know You’re Livin'
3. 'Someone God Can Use'
4. 'Semper Fi'
6. 'I Love Her, She Hates Me, I Drink'
7. 'Beer Makes You Lean'
8. 'Can’t Get Enough'
9. 'Devil In The Mirror'
10. '4 Square Miles'
11. 'Between Whiskey & Gin'
12. 'Rowdy As Randall'
Opening with the loud and proud twanger of the title track, 'Big Storm,' the album rolls on with the mid-tempo, bar-friendly 'That’s How You Know You’re Livin,' the low slung ballads 'Someone God Can Use' and the much-adorned 'Semper Fi' which is itself backed by the deep-throated wonderment of 'Nicotine.'
Next up is the inquisitive ballad 'I Love Her, She Hates Me, I Drink,' which is backed by one of my own personal favorites, the fun-imbibed 'Beer Makes You Lean,' and then we get the foot-tappin' gentle rocker 'Can’t Get Enough,' the Southern R'n'R of 'Devil In The Mirror,' the storytelling of '4 Square Miles,' with the album rounding out on the lonesome outcry of 'Between Whiskey & Gin,' closing on the upbeat, rockin' country swagger of 'Rowdy As Randall.'
“I am really looking forward to returning back to Jackson Hole during the week I release my first full length album, Big Storm,” said Warner. “The fans out there really love their country music, and I love bringing it to them just as much!”
Adam Warner comes from a family who have been family farmers for more than 100 years, and he grew up with men who served in the U.S. Military.
He found an early love for music and played in bands throughout high school. Influenced by his favorite singers, including Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, George Jones and Hank Williams Jr. and Sr., he started writing songs and continued to perform until he took a break from music while in college to join the U. S. Marines for five years.
As soon as he could after his discharge, Warner moved to Nashville, where he was soon back to writing songs and entertaining fans. It was obviously the right decision, because country star Trace Adkins heard about him and invited Warner to open his shows.
Warner had heard Adkins’ hit 'Semper Fi' when he was in the Marines and told Adkins he would like to record the song, and Adkins agreed to duet on it with him.
The song won Warner the Vox Pop award for Country Music Song of the Year at the 17th annual Independent Music Awards in June of 2019.
Warner and buddies Quinn Loggins and Trafton Harvey wrote 'Welcome to the South,' which has become the theme song for the NFL team the Tennessee Titans, who turned it into a video they play before each of their games in Nashville.
Warner has also released an EP, Can’t Get Enough, which resulted in him being heralded by critics as a welcome return to traditional country with songs that are mini-movies about every-day life.
He is now working on his next project, which he says will stay in the same realm, but as the Marines taught him, will show growth in his music.
