“The most gritty, pretty cowboy you’ve ever seen.”
This intriguing depiction personifies Alberta’s up-and-coming country singer-songwriter Robert Adam – also referred to as an “angel cowboy.” And the artist is sure to captivate country music fans with his spunky new single, “Don’t Touch My Rhinestones”, which hit streaming services February 4th.
“Don’t Touch My Rhinestones” is the second single off of Adam’s upcoming EP Baby Blue, which is set to be released later this year. It is the follow up to his lead single, “Let’s Do This Again.”
The new single is sweet and salty, encouraging the listener to stand their own ground and embrace who they are. Infused with pedal steel guitar, female-led backing vocals, and 70s-inspired guitar tones, “Don’t Touch My Rhinestones” is a truly unique and off-the-beaten path modern country tune. Adam’s vocal delivery, range, and phrasing is particularly of interest in the track.
Adam is paving a new path in country music: unapologetically himself, bold, and soulful, respecting traditional country while also incorporating his own modern style. One of only a select handful of LGBTQ+ country artists, Adam is making music that is self-empowering, uplifting, and confident.
Having gained notable traction in Canada, Adam is on his way to being a recognized country artist far and wide. One of his achievements include his song, “Rocky Mountain Lot”, which qualified him in the Top 10 of the Canadian Songwriting Competition in 2017.
Born and raised in the small town of Bonnyville, Alberta, Adam now lives and makes music in Crossfield, Alberta, working in the day as a heavy duty mechanic, and being the angel cowboy he is by night. The Canadian country musician is on the road to releasing his anticipated new album, Baby Blue, which will surely act as a strong stepping stone in his blossoming music career.
“Don’t Touch My Rhinestones” is now available on all streaming platforms.
