(Nashville, TN. – March 29, 2024) – Powerhouse country singer/ songwriter Jess Kellie Adams is excited to release her spirited new self-penned single, “More Than Home.” The infectious, uptempo song comes from a highly personal place of truth and authenticity. It will speak to your emotions yet have you singing along at the same time. “More Than Home” was co-written with and produced by multi-award-winning, Grammy-nominated artist Dean Sams of country super-group Lonestar. It is already creating a buzz among industry professionals and music fans alike. The song will be featured twice on Radio SoBro’s NuMu Friday upon release at 1:30 & 6 PM  CST. “More Than Home” is available on all digital and streaming platforms. Listen HERE.

 

“More Than Home” is reminiscent of the popular 90s country sound with a modern edge flair. Adams textured and sultry soaring vocals and harmonies paired with a stellar production are guaranteed to take listeners on an enchanting musical journey leaving them spellbound. The heartfelt lyrics were written from raw emotion and real-life experience. They convey a relatable and universal message about recognizing your roots and how as you mature, you develop a greater appreciation for those roots and all the people and memories you shared life’s journey with during your formative years, shaping you into the person you are today.

 

“I think we are all guilty at some point in our lives of wanting to run away from everything familiar and safe and just carve a new path. I couldn’t wait to do just that the minute I graduated from high school. I have grown so much from my journey away from my hometown in so many ways. I think the biggest revelation I had was that all the things I was running from were the very things that shaped the person I am and the places and people that inspired me and my dreams. They are more than home; they are my heart! ‘More Than Home’ is my love letter to them.” comments Adams.

 

“Memories, big dreams
I was a little girl wanting more 
Two red lights, one stop sign
I was looking for an open door

 

To get out of this town and find my way 
Wasn’t gonna listen to anyone or anything 
Didn’t need this place or anybody in it
Til I remembered

 

That my first steps happened outside my grandpa’s house 
Baptized in the creek where we swam in the summer
My first kiss was in my high school parking lot
Found love and a broken heart
I was taught to pray at the Church of Christ
Cheered for my hometown blue and gold every Friday night 
No matter where I go, no matter what I do
Nothing lives in me more than you

 

Now I miss the old drive-in 
Driving backroads with my friends 
Bonfires on weekends
I really want to feel that again
I didn’t need this place or anybody in it 
Til I remembered…”

 

Adams is already back in the studio working on new music to be released later this year. She will also be releasing two music videos and a Christmas single. Her latest video, “Hold On To Me” is currently in rotation on CMT.
