The Wrights is an American country music duo composed of husband and wife Adam Wright and Shannon Wright. Adam Wright is also the nephew of country music artist Alan Jackson.[1]

Adam and Shannon Wright met in 1998 after he filled in for a musician in her band in Atlanta, Georgia.[2] The two started out writing songs together, eventually marrying and moving to Nashville, Tennessee in 2002.[2][3] Two of the duo's songs can be found on Jackson's 2004 album What I Do.

A year later, the Wrights' debut album, Down This Road, was released on Jackson's personal label, ACR (Alan's Country Records), in association with RCA Records.[4][5] Adam and Shannon wrote all of the songs on their album.[6] A self-titled, eight-song EP and a second album, In the Summertime, both followed in 2008.
