NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Neo-traditional Country singer-songwriter, and U.S. Marine veteran Adam Warner releases his full length album Big Storm everywhere digitally, on Friday, February 26. American Songwriter exclusively premiered the first listen of Warner’s first full length album today, which includes three songs he released as singles since 2019. The first was “SemperFi,” co-written by Adam’s friend and mentor, Trace Adkins, which also won Best Country Song at the 2019 Independent Music Awards. In 2020, TheBoot.com premiered the video for honky-tonk jam “That’s How You Know You’re Livin”, and then later that year he dropped “4 Square Miles,” a tribute ode to his family’s farm in Lawrenceville, Illinois released. The song’s video has garnered more than 147,000 YouTube views along with being aired on The Country Network and The Heartland Network.
Big Storm also includes several songs that were written by legendary Nashville songwriter Kim Williams, including the title track, plus “I Love Her, She Hates Me, I Drink,” and “Devil In The Mirror,” among others.
“The release of the Big Storm project has been a long-time coming,” Warner said. “As my first full-length studio album, it was my honor and privilege to include songs written by the great Kim Williams, and of course, my friend and mentor, Trace Adkins.”

About Adam Warner:
Adam Warner comes from a family who have been family farmers for more than 100 years, and he grew up with men who served in the U.S. Military. He found an early love for music and played in bands throughout high school. Influenced by his favorite singers, including Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, George Jones and Hank Williams Jr. and Sr., he started writing songs and continued to perform until he took a break from music while in college to join the U. S. Marines for five years. As soon as he could after his discharge, Warner moved to Nashville, where he was soon back to writing songs and entertaining fans. It was obviously the right decision, because country star Trace Adkins heard about him and invited Warner to open his shows. Warner had heard Adkins’ hit “Semper Fi” when he was in the Marines and told Adkins he would like to record the song, and Adkins agreed to duet on it with him. The song won Warner the Vox Pop award for Country Music Song of the Year at the 17th annual Independent Music Awards in June of 2019. Warner and buddies Quinn Loggins and Trafton Harvey wrote “Welcome to the South,” which has become the theme song for the NFL team the Tennessee Titans, who turned it into a video they play before each of their games in Nashville. Warner has released an EP, Can’t Get Enough, which resulted in him being heralded by critics as a welcome return to traditional country with songs that are mini-movies about every-day life. He is now working on his next project, which he says will stay in the same realm, but as the Marines taught him, will show growth in his music.
