Love For Birmingham


American Singersongwriter
Adams’ stage banter is also quite enjoyable. At one point during the set, Adams launched into a five-minute improvisational song unique to Birmingham, with lines about getting drunk at local bar The Nick, hanging out with friend and Alabama-native Jason Isbell (who joined the singer onstage at the Ryman last spring) and a less likely, yet wild scenario — having a party with Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley. But where Adams’ interjects with humor, he later balances with serious moments as on the ballads “When The Stars Go Blue” and “Oh My Sweet Carolina.” [full review here]
