Like many country music aficionados, Adam Lee came to the genre after a youth in punk rock. His debut album “Ghostly Fires” ditches much of the alt-country influence of his previous group in favor of a golden-era sound that recalls Merle Haggard, George Jones, and other heavy hitters. With his partner Johnny Kay’s multi-instrumental skills riding shotgun, it’s a keenly produced affair that sets the scene just right for Lee’s deep-voiced drawl. The Company men trekked down I-70 to join us for a half-hour podcast and share stories about pretty girls in bars, playing strip clubs, and hopping trains for 500 feet.
