NASHVILLE, TN – David Adams, a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional and CPA, was among the advisors named to the Forbes list of Best-In-State Wealth Advisors. Adams is President of Nashville-based David Adams Wealth Group, an Independent practice offering securities through Raymond James Financial Services, Inc., member FINRA/SIPC. The list, which recognizes advisors from national, regional and independent firms, was released online February 20, 2019.

Adams, whose office is located at 2905 12th Avenue South, currently manages more than $300,000,000+ in client assets and specializes in wealth management for high net worth individuals, songwriters, musicians, and entrepreneurs. Adams first book, The Currency of Time, was released in January 2019 by Advantage, a division of Forbes Books and takes a critical look at the traditional concept of retirement. After spending more than 15 years advising clients, Adams was inspired to write The Currency of Time to help address some of the consistent misconceptions about retirement. “We are letting the fear of not having or being enough drive us into career-focused lives that drain us of joy and put us in the hospital- or even worse. There is a better way to ‘retire while you work’ and live in the now,” he wrote in the book. David’s philosophies have been featured in Huff Post, USA Today, Nashville Business Journal, Investment News, among many other reputable sources. He can be reached at (615) 435-3644 or
