Before playing country music to thousands, Adam Doleac was recruited by the University of Southern Mississippi Baseball team. Adam won three rings in four years and played in the 2009 College World Series. When his baseball career officially ended, a man of many talents, Adam moved to his other passion and started booking shows as a solo artist and writing songs that quickly garnered the attention of established songwriters in Nashville. After several successful song writes, Adam made the move to Nashville, and his career gained traction. SiriusXM’s The Highway selected Adam’s “I Put It On Ya” as an On The Horizon track and shortly thereafter he was offered a publishing deal with Sony/ATV and earned cuts from Darius Rucker and Kane Brown. Sirius XM continues to be one of Adam’s most significant supporters and he tours coast to coast with his Spotify playlist top earned hits.
