There’s Some “Love Kickin’ In” for Adam Rutledge
By Kailee Thompson
When you have flair in your music, relatable lyrics, and a tune that will get people on their feet, it is only a matter of time before people start falling in love with you. These exact reasons are how up and coming artist, Adam Rutledge, caught the eye and ear of Phil Vassar and why the two have been working together ever since. Adam has been opening shows for Vassar since the start of the year and he has also shared the stage with artists like Lee Brice, Old Dominion, Lauren Alaina, Brothers Osborne and so many more.
Adam prides himself on being a country-rock artist who got his introduction to country music when his mom gave him Keith Urban’s Golden Road album. Intrigued by the sound of guitar-heavy country music and being a guitar player himself, he focused his music on the sounds and riffs of the guitar. After hearing the musical styling of Jason Aldean, Adam decided he wanted his music to move in a similar direction with the same instrumental focus. As he said himself, “I fit in, but I don’t blend in.” Adam loves country music, but his new EP is mixed like a rock record, giving a little taste of everything.
So, what can you expect to hear on Adam Rutledge’s new EP Runway? Adam isn’t shy in saying you should expect it all. From country-rock, to pop, to even some ballads, be ready to crank the dial all the way up and it won't take long until you're belting out the words to every song. All Adam wants is for people to smile when they hear his music and he excels in writing tunes that listeners can relate to you.
Adam’s new single “Love Kickin’ In” is just a sneak peek to the fun, feel-good songs he loves to write and sing. As he explains, the song is not about saving the world, but rather it is something you can dance to and people can relate to how amazing of a feeling it is to be in love. Not every song has to be complicated and “Love Kickin’ In” keeps it easy and lighthearted.
Adam Rutledge is a name you will want to remember and one that will be hard to forget once you get a taste of his music. Listen to his current single “Love Kickin’ In” now and be on the lookout for the release of his EP Runway on June 22
