Capitol Records Nashville / Buena Vista Records’ Adam Hambrick released his new song, “Between Me and the End of the World,” today. Listen HERE. The song is a heartfelt tribute to Adams’s wife, a physician assistant who has been treating patients throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, and what it has been like for Adam watching her help those in need despite the risk to own self.
“This song is for all the people who step in and serve people when things go horribly wrong,” says Adam. “I have spent this quarantine watching my wife go off to work as a physician assistant to do her version of that, testing and treating people for the virus. It has given me a new appreciation for all the people who spend their lives serving others in difficult times. It’s terrifying seeing someone you love do what they were made to do but have to do it in harm’s way.”
In a departure from the norm, Adam wrote “Between Me and the End of the World” during a solo write and recorded the vocal in his bedroom while his wife was working alongside him. All of the additional recording was done remotely from each musicians’ home studio. The track was featured earlier this week by The Associated Press in their piece ‘reflecting the times’ describing the song as “a tearjerker.”
Adam Hambrick (Between Me and the End of the World) OC: …amazing. :52
“’Between Me and the End of the World’ is a song I wrote and recorded, because it was just an honest feeling and an honest thought I had just through the course of this pandemic unfold and watching my wife have to be a part of treating people and caring for people in the middle of that and it just made me think of all the ways that people serve all the time when things go wrong. Anytime things go wrong, there are all sorts of brave people that step in and serve the rest of us – firefighters, people in the military, paramedics, and right now it is medical professionals, and those people can’t be thanked enough. Because some days the bad news does hit too close to home; some days it does feel like the end of the world, and there’s somebody there standing right there helping the rest of us, and that’s amazing.”
