Ryan Adams Net Worth
Ryan Adams Net Worth: Ryan Adams is an American singer/songwriter, musician and producer who has a net worth of $12 million dollars. Ryan Adams was born November 5, 1974 in Jacksonville, North Carolina. He is best known for his solo career and as a former member of the alternative country band Whiskeytown. In 2000, Adams left Whiskeytown and released his first solo album, Heartbreaker. The album was nominated for the Shortlist Music Prize. He released five albums with the rock band The Cardinals. Adams left The Cardinals and announced that he was taking a break from music. He resumed performing in October 2010 and released his thirteenth studio album, Ashes & Fire, on October 11, 2011. The album peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard 200. Adams has also produced albums for Willie Nelson, Jesse Malin, Jenny Lewi, and Fall Out Boy. He has also collaborated with Counting Crows, Weezer, Norah Jones, America, Minnie Driver, Cowboy Junkies, Leona Naess, Toots and the Maytals, Beth Orton and Krista Polvere. He also wrote Infinity Blues, a book of poems, and Hello Sunshine, a collection of poems and short stories. Following the release of 2011's album Ashes and Fire, Adams' musical career was temporarily put on hold due to an inner-ear disorder, which resulted in canceled shows. Adams subsequently began writing music again and holed himself up in his L.A. Pax-Am studios with bassist Tal Wilkenfeld, drummer Jeremy Stacey and guitarist/producer Mike Viola to work on new material. The resulting self-titled album was due for release in 2014. Adams gained negative notoriety after he left an angry message on critic Jim DeRogatis' answering machine and the content of the message was leaked to the press. The message was in response to a scathing review DeRogatis gave of an Adams' show in 2003, and in particular the critic's dismissive comparison of the singer-songwriter's talents with those of Wilco front man Jeff Tweedy. In 2009 Adams married singer-songwriter and actress Mandy Moore. In 2015, Mandy and Ryan announced they were divorcing.
