Adam Doleac Finally Moves On With ‘Don’t Make Me Get Over You’ (Review)
Adam Doleac reels from the whiplash of an on-again, off-again relationship. “Don’t Make Me Get Over You,” written with Andy Skib and Robert Hamrick, features a deceptively cheery melody, yet the lyrics depict the “raw emotions that follow the aftermath of dealing” with said lover. Doleac finds himself unsure about his future and struggles to cope with the heartache.
“I ain’t gonna lie / You’re making it hard on this heart of mind,” he sings with plain honesty. “I was moving on, now I’m tip-toeing back across that line / So, baby, whatever you do tonight / Don’t run your fingers through my hair / Don’t make me think there’s something there.”
When writing “Don’t Make Me Get Over You,” Doleac and his co-writers aimed “to tell a story that brought closure to those who have experienced the romantic upset of a toxic relationship,” he says. “They say music is therapeutic and enhances the ability to communicate, so my hope is that through this track people are able to find the beauty in the complex emotions of a breakup.”

Originally from Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Doleac has been making the country rounds for a number of years. His song “Whiskey’s Fine” caught the attention of SiriusXM’s “The Highway Channel” and reached the Top 3 on the station’s Hot Country countdown. It was only up from there. He released more singles, namely his “Famous” hit that 53 million streams, alongside other streaming hits like “Another” and “Don’t It Sound Right.” Doleac issued his debut LP Barstool Whiskey Wonderland last fall on Arista Nashville.
