Adam Pope is an entertainer/songwriter born in Winston-Salem, NC. At the age of 15 Adam learned to play guitar and a few years later he purchased Johnny Cash’s “San Quintin” album. Pope credits this album for changing his life. In early 2006, Adam moved to Nashville, TN to pursue a career in songwriting and performing. He quickly met folks, got gigs, and put together a band.
In 2007, Adam got a meeting with John Carter Cash, which resulted in Adam’s original song “I Was The Train” being recorded and released by artist Vince Mira, whom John Carter was producing at the Cash Cabin Studio. Adam would go on to meet Johnny Cash’s long-time drummer WS “Fluke” Holland and guitarist Bob Wooten. Months later “Fluke” joined Adam on a snare-drum at Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe, and the two would work together often on shows throughout the next decade, including on a recording project together at Sun Studio in Memphis and on the "Music City Roots" show.
Adam wrote a song with Robyn Collins called "Old Fashioned" that ended up being recorded and released by IBMA (multiple) award-winning Bluegrass duo, Darin and Brooke Aldridge. Their album "This Life We're Living” went #1 on the Bluegrass charts. The duo has performed "Old Fashioned" multiple times on the iconic Grand Ole Opry radio show. "Old Fashioned" was also featured on RFD TV's "My Bluegrass Story," on the Mike Huckabee (TV) Show (TBN), and more.
As an artist Adam has hosted Ernest Tubb's "Midnight Jamboree" radio program (WSM radio) multiple times, he's been a regular "In the Round" at Nashville's Bluebird Cafe, and he has toured regularly, working stages all across the US and Canada as an artist and in multiple bands, (also with Debbie Horton’s “Branson On The Road” show.)
With a Sponsorship from Music Ranch Montana, Adam and his wife Amy (along with their 2 kids) have traveled and performed as a duo from coast to coast across the US in recent years. The couple's song "Memories Worth Making" (penned by Mike Astrachan and Adam Pope) made it to the first round ballot of Grammy Award consideration in 2023.
