Review: Adam Holt "The Sunday Troubadour"

The state of Alabama doesn't always get the musical respect it deserves, but up-and-coming country artists like Adam Holt prove that the Gulf Coast state is a hotbed of musical talent. On "The Sunday Troubadour," singer Adam Holt runs the musical gamut of rock 'n' roll, blues, soul and country. And it's darn good.
Holt chose the right song to lead off the the album, because "Door #1" is a bold country anthem with a memorable melody that allows the artist to showcase his most positive country music credential: his golden country rock voice. "Door #1" deserves to be a Top 10 country radio hit, and "Sideways" has much of the same charm.

The next cut "Big Girls" is another bold country cut that pays tribute to a large segment of country music fans who will eat this song up faster than free samples of bacon at the Piggly Wiggly. Holt channels his inner Darius Rucker on the next track "Cheaters Never Win," which also has country chart potential.

Radio program directors should take notice of "Where I Belong," which is a superb ballad. To have a long and successful country career, singers usually need to be equally comfortable with honky tonk style tracks and ballads. "Where I Belong" will take away any doubts of Adam Holt's viability as a contender in country music, and it is definitely the best song on the album. The final cut, "Mr Hollywood" also deserves special mention for its biting lyrics and confident vocal performance from Holt.

The only slight criticism of "The Sunday Troubadour" is the title of the album. You see, in only ten songs that clock in at just over 36 minutes, Adam Holt conclusively proves that he belongs on the largest country music stages. So the title should have been the album's best track: "Where I Belong." CountryChart.com
