Sanders first found success in Nashville as a songwriter, penning songs for Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley and Tyler Farr, among others. One of Music Row's hottest young songwriters, Sanders has topped the charts with such #1 singles as Cole Swindell's "Ain't Worth the Whiskey" and Dustin Lynch's "Hell of a Night." He honed his craft hanging out with pals like Swindell, Farr, Jon Pardi, Chase Rice and Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley.
He then embarked on his artist career, quickly earning a reputation as an up and comer to watch as he independently sold over 70,000 singles and scored over 30 million Spotify streams. "I started feeling like a puppet just trying to chase what labels thought I needed to sound like and so I finally just stepped back."
Self-examination led to Sanders focusing on what is truly important to him and what he wants to say to his growing audience. The result is his new EP. The lead single, "Thankful For," is quintessential Adam Sanders. It's an upbeat ode to all the blessings he's grateful to enjoy. Ironically, he was in a difficult place when he wrote it. "I was going through a breakup and things in my life were shifting," he says. "I didn't realize how much I was going to need that song or how much it was really going to become ME until last year. I'm growing in my faith and a lot of things are really just taking shape in my life. Now when I sing it, I believe every word of it and it truly describes me."
