Potawatomi Hotel and Casino is set in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, WI and hosts numerous free concerts at the Fire Pit Side Bar. This past Friday, May 8th it brought some amazing Nashville talent. Justin Adams a Bixby, Oklahoma native who’s got the songwriting skills of many greats that have come before him, and the power to draw everyone in with a performance filled with incredible vocals and a high-energy performance. I’ve followed the career of Justin Adams since his name was first made known on Itunes and in the first week his EP landed in the Top 4. There’s absolutely not a doubt in my mind why it shouldn’t have. One of the most incredible songs on his EP is, Miss Me Whiskey. Thats the song that had me hooked on Justin Adams from the very beginning. It’s not only the lyrics of the song but the depth and range in his voice that alone could leave a cowgirl feeling tipsy.
I’ve seen him go from opening up for Jamie Lynn Spears at Joe’s Bar and performing a half hour or so set to a performance like this where he killed every single minute of over an hour and a half performance. His set was mixed with some of his favorites off of his EP, and about 6 new songs he’s written with some of the other talented Nashville songwriters. What I found to be the highlight of the night was the way Justin owned the stage and took it with much confidence and perfection as he covered some of his favorite country songs by artists such as Keith Urban, Eric Church, and my favorite covers he kills are from Garth Brooks. I cannot tell you how proud I am to see this guys career take off full speed. Absolutely ecstatic about this guys career in country music because it is truly where he belongs.
So proud of him as he recently signed a publishing deal with UMPG Nashville. Couldn’t happen to a more talented, down to earth, sweet, and humble guy. This is only the beginning of a long career for Justin Adams. Can’t wait to see him grace many more stages and draw others in with an amazing song he wrote, the passion to perform, or capture hearts with all around true artistry. Be sure to pick up his EP, and wear it out because it kind of gets stuck on repeat from first listen. If you get a chance, check out a performance and I promise you there will be no disappointment whatsoever.
