Cold Hearted Woman from Dave Adkins

Mountain Fever Records has a new single this week for Dave Adkins, the third from his upcoming We’re All Crazy album, due to hit next week.

A native of eastern Kentucky, Dave has been singing bluegrass music since he was in high school. After just a couple of years performing at Dollywood, he was named a Kentucky Colonel, the highest honor given by the Commonwealth, for his artistic achievements. After a brief diversion into country and rock, Adkins has been back with his first musical love for more than a decade.

This latest single is a song he wrote, Cold Hearted Woman, a driving grasser inspired by a chance discussion Adkins overheard. In it a a man used that appellation to describe a woman who seemed to everyone else to be a sweetheart. 

“I couldn’t stop thinking about that conversation and him describing her as being so cold-hearted, so I wrote this song. I hope you enjoy it.”

He is supported on the track by Aaron Ramey on guitar, Jason Davis on banjo, Will Clark on mandolin, and Jeff Partin on reso-guitar, bass, and harmony vocals.
