With the sounds of classic songwriting in their music and the future in their sights, The Farmer & Adele are reimagining the modern cowboy/cowgirl while respecting its beginnings. Based out of Nashville, TN, The Farmer & Adele – led by Grace Adele and Keenan Wade – leads the pack of a new wave of musicians revitalizing western swing music. With a star-studded record, award nominations and their own morning radio show, The Farmer & Adele are a one-two punch of classic meets modern.
The Farmer & Adele have also quickly rooted themselves into the fabric of music communities near and far. The band’s debut effort, Into the Wide Open Sky, was selected to be featured as part of Nashville Public Library’s Boombox series, a closely curated music collection highlighting the best artists in Nashville. Most recently, the band was nominated by the Ameripolitan Music Awards for Best Western Swing Group. Also, their annual Country and Western Christmas Party tour is a beloved tradition that travels annually nationwide, featuring classic Christmas tunes, original holiday songs and their own take on The Nutcracker with a western swing twist.
The Farmer & Adele also host their own daily radio show. “On The Trail with The Farmer & Adele” features cuts of classic tunes and original songs performed by the band. The segment regularly brings in guest hosts who share a love of cowboy music including Ranger Doug and Too Slim of Riders In The Sky, Lisa Sutton (Lynn Anderson’s daughter), Music City Doughboys, and Deke Dickerson, among others. The show is sponsored by D’Addario and airs worldwide every morning on WSM Route 650 Americana. The band is also featured regularly on 650 AM WSM as the house band during the station’s Grand Ole Opry pre-show and live radio spot coverage.
