Adam Harvey – I’d Rather Be a Highwayman



Acclaimed country music star Adam Harvey has released his new album, ‘The Nashville Tapes’.


Multiple Aria Award nominee and 8 time Golden Guitar winner Adam Harvey is one of Australia’s most popular and enduring country stars with a career spanning over two decades. Encapsulating over half a million sales, Gold and Platinum albums, this release follows the success of his most recent albums Harvey’s Backyard Bar, The Great Country Songbook Volume II and Family Life.


Fulfilling a lifelong dream, Adam jetted off to the bright lights of the immortal Music City to record masterful 10th studio album ‘The Nashville Tapes’ with producer Nash Chambers, armed with a brace of new songs couched in the classic country sounds that most capture his imagination.


“It’s one of those things that’s been on my bucket list for probably 20-odd years, to actually go and record an album over there in Nashville,” Harvey says of the inspiration behind ‘The Nashville Tapes’.


“I thought I want to make a 70’s country album: that’s my favourite era in country music. While everybody else is heading further and further away from classic country music, it’s a good step for me to not only follow my passion and my heart, but also to go the other way!”


The beating heart of ‘The Nashville Tapes’ is the anthemic first single ‘I’d Rather Be a Highwayman’, a careworn barroom sway coloured with intoxicating piano and cowboy drums, which transitions into a stirring dedication to the immortal flame of classic country.


‘Nothin makes me give a damn more than country can, I’d rather be a Highwayman than a Rolling Stone,’ sings Harvey.


‘The Nashville Tapes’ is yet another career-best album for Adam Harvey. A deeply personal, powerfully reverent release not years but decades in the making, The Nashville Tapes is the masterwork of an all-time Australian country music legend.


Harvey and is band will take ‘The Nashville Tapes’ on the road in the coming months, with support from The Voice Australia 2017 winner, Judah Kelly. Concertgoers can expect everything Australia has come to love about Adam Harvey’s incomparable live show: a rousing mix of new songs, established hits and live favourites, and a smattering of evergreen country classics – along with liberal doses of Harvey’s trademark yarns, droll one-liners, and generous good humour.
