Nashville-based rising country artist Adam Hambrick bleeds Razorback Red, so he’s always excited to get back to Arkansas for a performance.

“I’m kind of obnoxious about where I come from,” he jokes ahead of his Oct. 31 performance in Fayetteville. “I can promise, any time I’m back in Arkansas, I always have just this little bit extra in the tank. Whenever I get to come back to play for family and friends who have known me for years, those are always the most special shows.”

with Parker McCollum

WHEN — 9 p.m. Oct. 31

WHERE — George’s Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville

COST — $15-$18


Hambrick performs at George’s Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville supporting alternative country rocker Parker McCollum, but Hambrick will also have a special solo engagement at The Graduate hotel earlier in the day.

“The fall has just been about introducing my music to new places and new people and Graduate has been a big part of that,” he says of the partnership with the hotel chain. “Low key is a good word. It’s acoustic, it’s more storytelling, playing three or four songs, taking questions — it’s very personal and intimate.”

Come nightfall, though, Hambrick promises he and the full band he will perform with at George’s will switch into “full gun show” mode.

“I think the perception of me a lot of times is very singer/songwriter bro, which, I love that. But also, I gotta spend time fighting against that,” he shares. “So when we show up to the club show that night, we get to put on a show. We bring the energy and bring something that’s a little different than what people might expect from me.”

The Halloween crowd can expect to hear some nostalgic favorites and a few new songs as Hambrick prepares for the release of his debut album, which he recently finished recording in the studio.

“We’re just figuring out how we want to put the music out, whether it’s full record, whether it’s EPs, we’re still weighing that,” he reveals. Beginning his career as a songwriter, Hambrick had plenty of material to pull from when it came time to curate his own work. “I think that’s the advantage of how Nashville works. That helps you develop your perspective and what you want to say and the ideas and the kind of songs that move you.

“I feel like they’re a great introduction for me as an artist,” he adds.
