Wide Open Country names David Adam Byrnes as 1 of 3 artist to watch

The October 2020 release of his Neon Town album positioned David Adam Byrnes to finally get his due as one of Texas' best guitar-slinging, country music singing, past-honoring troubadours. 

Byrnes' journey dates back to at least his 2008 decision to move from his native Arkansas to Nashville, where he chased his songwriting dreams while learning all he could from Paul Overstreet and other all-time greats. 

Hearing rodeo rider turned Reba McEntire collaborator Cody Johnson on the radio and heeding sage advice from Aaron Watson led Byrnes from Music City to Fort Worth. Since calling Texas home, Byrne's built a reputation with George Strait lyrical nod "Tequila Salt and Time," honky-tonk dance floor packer "Beer Bucket List" and other reminders that party songs don't have to be paint-by-number.
