Adams will play music spanning his impressive career, including songs from October’s release of Ashes & Fire, which was released on PAX-AM/Capitol, debuted at #7 and continues to generate Adams’ most enthusiastic critical notices to date. Adams is the latest artist to perform as part of the LIVE ON LETTERMAN webcast concert series, which recently received a Media Vanguard Award from Advertising Age.
