Adam Wright

Singer-songwriter Adam Wright has signed with Frank Liddell‘s Carnival Music.

“Adam is highly regarded as a talented songwriter, artist and multi-instrumentalist,” said Liddell. “He has been working with other Carnival writers for a while, so it makes perfect sense that he is now a member of the family. He is going to make great music for many years and we are excited he will be making it at Carnival.”

Wright currently has a Grammy nomination for Best Country Song for Alan Jackson‘s “So You Don’t Have To Love Me Anymore.”
