About Adult Contemporary

Adult contemporary music (AC) is a form of popular music typically played on the radio. This genre can include anything from 1960s vocal and 1970s soft rock to present-day ballad-heavy songs. AC usually has easy listening, pop, soul, R&B, quiet storm, and rock influences.  With its lavish, calming, and highly polished soundscapes, adult contemporary music stands out for emphasizing melody and harmony. In the United States, adult contemporary music is oftentimes referred to as middle-of-the-road (MOR) music. This is because this genre typically falls in between pop and easy listening on the radio dial. Its music first began to gain popularity in the mid-1960s. 

This was around the same time that the Beatles were gaining fame in the United States. The Beatles’ softer songs, such as “Yesterday” and “Here, There, and Everywhere,” helped to pave the way for adult contemporary music. Other artists who helped to shape the sound of AC include Barbra Streisand, Dionne Warwick, and The Carpenters. In the 1970s, soft rock artists such as James Taylor and Carly Simon also found success in this genre. AC continued to grow in popularity throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, and Michael Bolton were among the most successful artists of this era. Today, adult contemporary music is as popular as ever. Artists such as Adele, Ed Sheeran, and Shawn Mendes are finding success in this genre. 

Watching an Adult Contemporary concert live is a truly unique experience. It allows music lovers to immerse themselves in the atmosphere and energy that is created by the artists onstage, as well as connect with other fans in the audience. The event itself can also provide an opportunity to learn more about the artist, and their influences and even get up close and personal with them during a meet and greet after the performance. Furthermore, there is something magical about being able to enjoy music with others in real time that cannot be reproduced through recorded formats.
