Premiere: David Adam Byrnes ‘A Honky Tonk Christmas’

For some of us it’s never too early to get in the holiday spirit, but for David Adam Byrnes, it’s long overdue. David has spent the last year hard at work on his own releases as well as teaming up with a star-studded cast of players to produce a 6-song holiday EP with his “A Honky Tonk Christmas” taking the title track. With a 90’s country feel, some serious guitar and fiddle, and a fun bit of flare, “A Honky Tonk Christmas” takes holiday heartbreak right into two-step territory

Recently signed to Reviver Publishing, Byrnes has been enjoying a quick rise to the mountaintop after a very long climb through the foothills of the country music landscape. With four straight #1 hit singles in Texas and his name popping up on influencer’s lists including Wide Open Country’s “three acts to watch in 2021,” the buzz surrounding David Adam Byrnes is as loud as a beehive farm.

I’m excited to start this new chapter of my life and career with a new team who truly has the same vision for my career that I do. I really love the ideas, approach, and mindset David Ross has towards the music business and how we fit into it.  I’ve also always admired Clay Myers and wanted to work with him since the first time we met, so I’m excited to finally have that opportunity and learn from him and David.”

About David Adam Byrnes
David Adam Byrnes left his small town in Arkansas to establish himself a mainstream songwriting force in Nashville.  Years later Byrnes made a return to his independent country music roots by making the scene in Texas with singles flying up the radio chart.  On October 2, 2020, Byrnes released his new album “Neon Town” producing four back-to-back #1 hit singles so far including “Old School.” The accompanying hilarious music video premiered on  DAB’s new single “Signs” is well on course to the top of the chart coming in at #1 this week.  The album and his recent performance at the Key West Songwriter’s Festival this year brought critical acclaim from the highly regarded Saving Country Music. “Slapping you square across the face with steel, fiddle, and Telecaster guitar, David Adam Byrnes is here to answer where all the country in country music has gone.  We are not making nearly enough of a stink about David Adam Byrnes folks!  His 2020 album ‘Neon Town’ was about the best modern traditional country you can find, and at the Key West Songwriters Fest, he accomplished more with just an acoustic guitar and microphone than most full bands could.”
