Just in time for Valentine’s Day, country crooner Adam Hood’s latest release – a love song called “You Love Me Like That” – is available everywhere now! Co-written with country singer and songwriter Sean McConnell and inspired by Hood’s longtime wife, Britni, the track showcases the authentic and uncomplicated writing that has solidified Hood’s status as one of music’s most revered songwriters, with a romantic feel that is perfect for sharing with someone you admire. The cover art is another personal touch and features photos from Adam and Britni's wedding day along with vintage pictures of their respective families.
I just want a love that’s strong and true
One soul in the world that knows what I’ve been through
Each time I look over my shoulder, I know that someone’s got my back
And you love me like that
And you don’t want a rich man
With something to prove
You just want to know every love song I write is about you
Hood says, “I wrote this with Sean McConnell back in 2016. He was sitting at the piano in the writer’s room when I got there. He played the first few lines and I fell right in. It felt like the song wrote itself. The lines just came. It’s what you hope for every time you sit down with an idea, but it rarely actually happens. It’s almost like you’re there to write down a song that’s ‘given’ to you. A song that’s bigger than you.”
He continues, “It’s also very special that such a personal song can resonate with others so well. There are quite a few songs written about being married to a ‘music man,’ but ask my wife and I bet she’ll tell you that one more song spoken with a little sincerity is very welcome! There’s so much that goes unseen and unsaid in our day-to-day lives and I’m thankful to have a song to remind me of what REALLY matters when things get overwhelming. I think that’s the sentiment that I see resonate with others when I play this song. Trials and troubles are NOT specific to the music world, but there’s power in saying ‘I am not alone.’ Who doesn’t want to be loved unconditionally for exactly what and who they are?”
This new song comes on the heels of Hood’s critically-acclaimed sixth studio album, Bad Days Better, which was released late last year. Saving Country Music called the album "some of the best songs of his career." Thanks to the success of Bad Days Better, along with his storied success through the years, Hood made his Grand Ole Opry debut in October and will be returning on February 24.
