“The Voice” Season 10 runner-up Adam Wakefield premiered his new music video for When You’re Sober yesterday, exclusively on TheBoot.com. Starting today, the video is now available worldwide on Vevo, YouTube and other retail partners.
“I’m so excited to be able to share this original song in such a raw, organic way. It’s definitely a lot different than the cover tunes I performed on the show, and I can’t wait to share more of my own music with everyone willing to listen,” says Wakefield.
Wakefield was first introduced to the public after landing an audition for the popular NBC show “The Voice”. After being chosen for Blake Shelton’s team, he took his career on the show to the very end, finishing second after sharing the stage with both Alison Krauss and Shelton in the two-part finale. “Lonesome Broken and Blue” hit No. 1 on the iTunes Top 100 songs chart and boasted the season’s top debut on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, entering at No. 73. The single, written by Wakefield, also debuted as his highest-charting (No. 14) of nine entries on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs.
The release marks his first original music debut since Lonesome, Broken, and Blue, which reached No. 1 on the iTunes 200 chart following the Season 10 Finale of “The Voice.” The music video debut for When You’re Sober comes the same week as the hit television show’s Season 11 launch, which premiered Monday, Sept. 19 on NBC.
