The album and tour may have been a long time coming, but Doleac thinks it was worth the wait.
“It’s been tough, we’ve had a lot of bad breaks, and a lot of opportunities to give up for sure,” Doliak said in a press release. “But I didn’t, and I didn’t, and it was time for the moment to happen. It’s like, ‘Maybe it all comes together for that record.’ It might be in time. “
“Barstool Whiskey Wonderland” on the Sony-Arista Nashville label will be in stores on September 30, but fans can pre-order on the official Doleac merchandise website. adam-doleac.merchmadeeasy.com.
The album features 18 songs, most of which were written or co-written by Doleac, including “Famous” and “Other,” both of which ranked first on SiriusXM’s album “Highway.”
“I’m so excited to share my debut album, Barstool Whiskey Wonderland,” Doleac said. It took a lot of time, hard work and life to make this. This album shows all the different sides of me and my music, and it really is my little “wonderland” of all my favorite songs, titles, and emotions. More than anything I wanted him to look like me. I hope when people listen to it they think, This is Adam Dolyak, and they get to know me more with each song.”
A press release for the album said “Barstool Whiskey Wonderland” includes Doleac’s trademark love songs, but also tells new stories of broken hearts, separation, and happy times.
In addition to making music and touring, Doleac also launched a line of ball caps and apparel centered in Hattiesburg called The Southern Made Collection, in honor of his alma mater, University of Southern Mississippi.
2021 is a good year for Adam Dolyak: Gold records and music played at College World Series
one shirt,”city keyTitled a song written by Doleac about his experience as a baseball player playing for the Golden Eagles in the College World Series in 2009. He performed the song at the 2021 College World Series, when the Mississippi State Bulldogs defeated the Nashville Vanderbilt Commodores to become the National Champions.
“I wrote that song based on my experiences as a former Southern Miss baseball player and got a chance to play in the College World Series, so it was a really nice combination of my life at the time and me living my life now in the music world,” Dolick said in a previous story.
Southern baseball coach Scott Perry said Doleac will carry his guitar on the road so he can play when he has a little free time.
“Adam was a very talented player on the court, but you could tell that if baseball didn’t work out, a career in music was a possibility,” Perry said. “We couldn’t be more proud of him in the success he’s achieving.”
Perry said Doleac is someone who is driven to succeed. Prior to joining the baseball team, Doleac was a golfer, which means he was good at every aspect of his game. It is possible that he could have chosen golf as a career as much as he could have chosen baseball or music.
“He was always one of those guys who would show you he could do it,” Berry said.
Doleac appeared in concert on August 27 at Pearl River Community College in Poplarville. He will return to Pine Belt on October 15 for a show at Southern Miss’ Spirit Park.
