Adam Lopez - 2017 Ameripolitan Nominee: Rockabilly Male

3x Ameripolitan nominee Adam Lopez has traveled the world in the name of honky tonk music. Like the original fusion of rhythm & blues and country music that created Rockabilly, Lopez has continued to forge new ground in creating a diverse American roots sound. Equally at home in the honky tonks of Texas as well as most blues friendly venues across the world, his sound continues to evolve and grow. His latest effort “The Cinderella Sessions” on Coastal Bend Music features the legendary Lloyd Green on steel guitar and Adam’s country side of songwriting. The sound is recognized as “the twang of Bakersfield with the soul of Texas” and delivers honest honky tonk music with heart and soul.
Fans of Dale Watson, Big Sandy & His Fly Rite Boys, Deke Dickerson, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Ray Price, Faron Young, Chuck Berry, and more will appreciate the diversity in Lopez’ sound as well as marvel at his resume that includes working with many of the greats in the history of American roots music.
