Ryan Adams was born on November 5, 1974 in Jacksonville, North Carolina, USA as David Ryan Adams. He is the middle of three children with an older brother and younger sister.
His childhood has been described as “dysfunctional.” His father left when he was five and at that time he, his mother and his brother and sister had to move in with his grandparents as they became homeless as a result of the divorce.
He has said in interview “I became who I am now because of my grandparents” and of his grandmother “…she was like a mother to me. His mother remarried when he was thirteen.
At the age of 8, Adams began writing short stories and limericks on his grandmother’s typewriter. In his own words, “I started writing short stories when I was really into Edgar Allan Poe.
Then later, when I was a teenager, I got really hard into cult fiction: Hubert Selby, Jr., Henry Miller, Jack Kerouac.” At fourteen, Adams began learning to play an electric guitar his mother and stepfather had bought him and soon joined a local band named Blank Label.
While they quickly disbanded, they did record a short three-track 7″ record, in 1991.
He was previously married to Mandy Moore.
Adams dropped out of Jacksonville High School in tenth grade, at the age of 16, subsequently moving into bandmate Jere McIlwean’s rental house, just outside Jacksonville.
Around this time he played and performed with a number of local bands, most notably his and McIlwean’s The Patty Duke Syndrome. After obtaining his GED, Adams left Jacksonville for Raleigh, shortly followed by McIlwean.
The Patty Duke Syndrome split in 1994 after releasing a split 7″ single containing two songs (The Patty Duke Syndrome’s song on one side, and a song from a band called GlamourPuss on the other).
Adams made his solo debut in 2000, with Heartbreaker (produced by Ethan Johns).
He has a net worth of $12 million dollars.
