Country music newcomer and Sirius XM’s newest Highway Find, Adam Doleac, released his debut EP via 287 Records on June 16. The Hattiesburg, Mississippi, native co-wrote all six tracks on the album, including “Whiskey’s Fine,” which has quickly become a favorite on Sirius XM The Highway.
The EP opens with a lighthearted track titled “Bigger Than Us.” Doleac sings about letting go of your fears to let love in, with lyrics like: “So close your eyes / Let go and hold on tight / whatever fate blows our way it’s never too much / Cause girl this love is bigger than us.” If there was any doubt that Doleac’s music is not only country-influenced but pop-influenced as well (ahem, John Mayer vibes, anyone?), the second track off the EP, “Shady,” is a testament to this. With smooth transitions and a bouncy vibe, “Shady” will have you tapping your foot from start to finish.
Doleac’s first single, “Whiskey’s Fine,” written by Doleac and Monty Criswell, is an upbeat track about a girl and a guy having a spontaneous night. “It’s about realizing sometimes the only way to work things out is to stay inside, pour a couple drinks, and whether it’s good or bad, act on what you feel without even thinking about it until the next day,” Doleac says.
