Northport Musician Makes his Debut at Grand Ole Opry in Nashville
Adam Hood, a Northport musician, had the opportunity to perform at one of the world's most notable country music venues earlier this month.
The Grand Ole Opry's website describes it as "the stage that showcases country music's past, present, and future." Its live concert series has been going on for almost 100 years in Nashville.
Hood took to the historic stage on October 22nd, and Blake Ells, a contributor for outsider.com said Hood performed his hits, including "Way Too Long," which was featured on his fourth full-length album, Welcome to the Big World, which was released in 2014.
Hood also performed "Harder Stuff," which was released on his most recent album, "Bad Days Better," and features country music star Miranda Lambert.
Elis said Hood has written for several country artists, including Lambert, Little Big Town, Travis Tritt, and Lee Ann Womack, among other artists. Hood said in the publication he enjoys the challenges of writing for others.
"I enjoy the challenge of writing for other people,” Adam Hood said in the interview. “Kind of trying to fit my style into what they do. I’ve heard people say that people call you to write because they want you to put your input into what they do, too. But it’s nice to see if we can maybe gel and get a collaborative effort."
Elis said Hood's show had a packed house and he expects Hood to make a return to the venue.
