CHUCK ADAMS - "Take Me As I Am"
Meet Chuck Adams. He’s a Nashville-based singer-songwriter.
He once wrote a big radio hit, got paid, landed a deal with Jay-Z, realized he made a mistake, found out on Twitter that he was dropped, became disillusioned and lost everything.
Now he’s starting from square one.
Today he’s releasing his new song “Take Me As I Am” (300 Entertainment)
Chuck shows his vulnerability and let's listeners in on who he is with this single!

currently #1 at Triple A Radio and being played on Sirius XM's The Spectrum, Alt Nationand Jam On + over 63 million streams on Spotify
Nashville's own alt-rock-five-piece band Moon Taxi has just released the video for their newest single "Two High" via RCA Records.
Following in line with the sentiment of the track's title, the video trails the band and their fans throughout the world, backstage and on stage at their electrifying live shows that have earned them millions of fans. It's a timely song given that it is "a song about hope," expressed frontman Trevor Terndrup. "Hope for understanding, hope for acceptance, and hope for our future. We were inspired by the simple and universal peace sign. It's a gesture we would like to see more of."
GOODBYE JUNE (Interscope)
Directed by Tyler Dunning Evans, the psychedelic and colorful video trails the band as they embark on a pilgrimage to the "good side" and highlights the song's mind-bending guitar riffs coupled with hypnotizing vocals.
"We wanted the video for 'Good Side' to portray the beauty and color of what life and beyond may be. This was the most fun we've had shooting a video in a while. Our first voyage in the world of green screen. Enjoy." - Goodbye June
Raised in West Tennessee and Southern Indiana, cousins Landon Milbourn (lead vocals,) Brandon Qualkenbush (rhythm guitar, backing vocals,) and Tyler Baker (lead guitar) came together after the death of Baker's brother and made a decision to chase a dream - and proceed no matter the cost. If not reckless, the reality of struggling to get by gives the lacerating, guitar-driven music a grittiness that's nothing short of broken glass. Focusing on writing songs, mastering their instruments and really stripping away the sludgy build-up so many bands think is important, Goodbye June hit upon the essence of their uniquely aggressive sound.
