HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Hometown star Adam Doleac made his way back home Friday for a special performance. He played at Brewsky’s in Hattiesburg for a sold out crowd.
“It means a lot to come home and it also means a lot to see a sold out show when you come home,” Doleac said. “We’ve be able to get a lot of support across the country and the world musically in the last few years, but this is the place where it kind of all started. It’s always great to come back home.”
Doleac was raised in the Hub City and played baseball at the University of Southern Mississippi. He moved to Nashville in 2012 to start his music career.
“I played baseball and then just kind of picked up a guitar one day and decided I wanted to go to Nashville and write songs,” Doleac said. “Two years after I moved there, I signed a deal with Sony in Nashville for a publishing deal. I’ve been writing for them ever since. It’s just been little victories ever since.”
He said the move to Nashville was a big change when compared to Hattiesburg.
“I went from living here, which is kind of the same thing every day, to living in a city where literally no day is the same,” Doleac said. “Nashville has taught me a lot. I’ve met a lot of my best friends there.”
Doleac has had the opportunity to tour with several country music stars such as Kane Brown, Cody Johnson and Chris Young.
