College baseball player-turned-country artist Adam Doleac has returned to his roots, writing and recording “Key To The City” for the ESPN promo for this year’s College World Series. The video dropped yesterday (6/17) – just ahead of Doleac’s first sold out show in Music City at east side venue The Back Corner. 

Before the Rolling Stone “Artist to Watch” decided to take a path of music, Doleac played baseball for the University of Southern Mississippi, playing in the 2009 College World Series. Much like fellow country artists Brett Young and Chris Lane, who both started out in college baseball, injuries prevented the Mississippi native from pursuing his baseball career any further.

“I thought about doing the minor leagues, but I was over baseball and ready to come to Nashville,”  the singer/songwriter told Billboard. “Two weeks before the end of the season, I hurt my shin pretty bad and it pushed me to not getting drafted. The same thing happened my senior year.”

It was after his college baseball career that the rising country artist decided to learn guitar and pursue his music career – a move that’s proven Doleac’s found his calling. After the release of his first single “Whiskey’s Fine” made Doleac a SiriusXM’s The Highway ‘Highway Find,’  he released follow-up track “Bigger Than Us,” which was equally as successful. His most recent single, “Famous,” went No. 1 on The Highway’s Hot 30 Countdown and held the spot for two consecutive weeks. He released two new singles – “Solo” and “Wake Up Beautiful” last Friday (6/14).
