New & Noteworthy: Adam Rutledge

Adam Rutledge’s sleek, raw and soulful voice brings authenticity to his songwriting and performances. He has knack for writing razor sharp stories that cut straight to the heart, full of detail and clever turns of phrase. That’s how he caught the attention of hit singer-songwriter Phil Vassar, which opened doors for Adam to become Vassar’s opening act throughout 2018.

In June, Adam released his new EP Runway, which includes his smash hit “Love Kickin In.”

“I love the ground we cover on this record. From fun uptempo feel-good songs like “Love Kickin’ In” and “Live The Song,” to playful sexy songs like “Wherever The Night Takes Us” and “Curls, to the very honest lyric of “Hard To Be Happy For You,” I feel like we touched on almost all of the human emotions. That’s the point, right? To make the listener FEEL something. I couldn’t be more proud of it.”

The Roanoke, Virginia native has also shared the stage with Old Dominion, Brothers Osborne, LOCASH, Eli Young Band, Lauren Alaina, Chris Janson, Tyler Farr and many more. Visit for more information on Adam.
