Ryan Adams & The Cardinals – Blue Sky Blues

Ryan Adams is one of the most underrated, prolific, talented, and versatile musical artists that has come along in the last 20 years. He is typically given the alt-country label but he has dabbled in many different genres over the years from country, to rock, to folk, and even heavy metal.  Unfortunately, he retired from recording and left NYC for Los Angeles. He currently lives in fancy West Hollywood.  Ryan is now a music producer and has his own recording studio. If you haven’t heard his music before I urge you to take a listen. It will be well worth the effort.

Ryan Adams Is Convinced He Saw a UFO

The story takes place in Glendale, California in July when Ryan was driving his car.

So… this is weird. Last night around 11 P.M. PT, Ryan Adams launched into a barrage of tweets about spotting a UFO. Yeah, for real.

But unlike most other UFO sightings, Adams didn’t see a blip of something for a fleeting moment. And according to his Twitter, he wasn’t the only one. Adams claims he spotted a “huge” object while driving his car in Glendale, CA, a place with a history of UFO sightings. Furthermore, Adams tweeted the object was hotly pursued by police cars as well as helicopters.

“Three cops were tearing ass in its direction in oncoming traffic. Thing was huge. If it was a blimp then that was a f-cked up blimp,” tweeted Adams. “Whatever I saw was like a real sci fi film come to life.”

Unfortunately—or depending on your beliefs, naturally—Adams didn’t catch any footage of it. “No pic because I didn’t twitter til I was parked,” he explained. “Enough people are dead from texting and driving.” Fair point. But still, a little photo evidence would have been greatly appreciated.

Although Adams said “cars were slowing down to a stall to look at this thing,” no one else seems to have tweeted a firsthand verification of his account. But that could be because, according to his Twitter feed, it was “closed off” shortly thereafter.

As for the possibility that Adams was under the influence of one substance or another, the man himself offered this sharp refutation: “Every person that sees something wack and unidentified aren’t on drugs…. crawl back into the caves, cro-magnons.”

Even if many are skeptical, Kacey Musgraves tweeted her support for his story. The burgeoning country songstress said she’s “had a couple UFO sightings myself, no joke. Both were incredible.”

But that’s all we know for now. It seems we’ll have to patiently wait and see if anything else comes of this. FYI, there’s a newly-launched site for people to share their alleged UFO pics and videos. So keep your eyes on that (or the sky).
