Artist of the Week: Adam Brand

CountryTown in partnership with iHeartCountry Australia is proud to announce Adam Brand as our Artist Of The Week, following the release of his new single, Still The One.

Since bursting onto the scene with his celebrated self-titled debut album in 1998, Adam has taken home 12 CMAA Golden Guitar Awards and netted six ARIA Award nominations. Across 15 studio albums, Adam has celebrated three platinum and five gold album certifications. Confirming Adam’s incomparable power as a fan favourite performer Australia wide, he has taken out seven CMC Oz Artist of the Year Awards – more than any other artist in the awards’ history.

Starting with the high-octane Built for Speed in 2002, Adam has enjoyed an unbroken string of No.1-charting ARIA Country Albums. 2020’s Speed of Life took out the No. 6 spot on the overall ARIA Albums Chart, marking Adam’s sixth studio album to make the Top 10.

Following his previous single from earlier this year, I’m Coming Home (which we premiered here), Still The One is an irresistible reflection on sustaining connection in the face of adversity.

“These two people have been through a crazy, difficult time,” Adam says of the couple at the heart of Still the One, “Just like every relationship does. Just like we, as a country and world, are going through right now. But no matter what happened in the past or what will happen, they’re saying, you’re still the one. We’ll stick together through thick and thin.”

It’s a timely message of hope, confirming Adam’s gift for unearthing those shared experiences that bind people from all walks of life together: from connecting over the wobbly table at a café to weathering the pang of physical separation.

“Even though it’s a love song between two people, there are so many relationships that are under duress at the moment,” Adam reflects. “There’s a lot of separation in the world because of borders. I hope everyone has somebody they can look in the eye and say, whatever happens, no matter what comes our way, we’re sticking through this.”
