Gannon Adams grew up rockin’ with artist like Merle Haggard, Travis Tritt, Mark Chesnutt and Garth Brooks. At the age of five, he would sing their songs to his Grandparents for a quarter. Raised in rural Mansfield Georgia, Gannon lives the lifestyle all his country music hero’s sang about; dirt roads, pickups, campfires and pasture parties. Country music in his “blood”.
Gannon began playing guitar at the age of 13 and really picked up the pace during his days at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton Georgia. Gannon frequently played music with his good friend Brian Cagle from Monticello, Georgia who had recorded a couple of gospel albums. Brian introduced Gannon to Barry Williams with “Rocket Man Entertainment” who saw potential in his voice and style and encouraged him to record.
In April of 2012, Gannon fulfilled a life long dream when he opened a show for his hero, the legendary Merle Haggard, at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville Tennessee. Gannon was originally scheduled to open a show for Merle in Macon Georgia in January 2012. The show was cancelled at the last minute when Merle was hospitalized for pneumonia. He made a full recovery and invited Gannon to open his shows in Nashville Tennessee, Pigeon Forge Tennessee and the Make up show in Macon Ga.

This release will keep you hooked with every song. The album “Breakin’ Me Down” is a new phase of Gannon’s country music journey that he has really been on all his life.
