A Roanoke, Virginia native with a passion for guitar-driven country music
Adam is known for putting on high-energy live shows, so it’s no surprise when he draws large crowds on the road. His edgy, powerful sound doesn’t blend into the honky-tonk vibe but gives a classic sound to new, original songs.
He has shared the stage with many national acts including Lee Brice, Montgomery Gentry, Old Dominion, Brothers Osborne, LoCash, Eli Young Band, Cassadee Pope, David Nail, Rodney Atkins, Laura Alaina, Chris Janson, Tyler Farr, Chase Rice, Phil Vassar and more.
Most known for his single, “Rub A Little Dirt On It”, “July”, and “Love Kickin in”, Adam’s new sound is making waves on the radio and STREAMING networks. His video, “Body like a Bieber,” (a combo of “Body like a Backroad” [Sam Hunt] and “Love Yourself” [Justin Bieber]) got everyone talking with over 12K+ views on Facebook. He released his “July” video in October to rave reviews.
“One of my strengths is that I write my own songs. My songs are original, familiar, and make the listener feel something. I dare you not to be humming the chorus by the end of one of the song,” says Rutledge.
Adam is managed by Phil Vassar and Amy Millslagle of i81 entertainment. He has a strong social media following on all platforms with over 11.8K followers on Instagram, 16K likes on Facebook, 4,300 followers on Twitter and counting. His fans are loyal and go all in for his music.
