Community Highlights: Meet William Adams, Jr. of Music City Axe Throwing,

Today we’d like to introduce you to William Adams, Jr.

Hi William, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers?
I grew up south of Atlanta, GA, and always had a knack for starting “businesses” – when I was 11 I pushed a lawnmower and an edger around the new housing developments and knocked on doors.

In high school, most of my focus was on sports, and I ended up departing for Auburn, AL on a football scholarship, much to the delight of my whole family, because at that time college wasn’t looking like much of an option.

We would have to sit down for a beer (a few) for me to tell you all of my experiences as a collegiate athlete, but it all lead to me transferring for my final year of eligibility at Boise State University, where I began my MBA.

After a short stint back in Atlanta, I moved to Nashville to begin a career. But throughout those years, the constant thoughts of something else were always there, “this is nice, but this isn’t IT”, “I want to build something, I want to create something”.

While visiting Oregon, I stumbled upon a brilliant guy who had created a mobile axe throwing range, and I knew that was something I wanted to bring to Nashville. As soon as we got home, I began engineering a solution to provide for the growing demand for outdoor entertainment in the Nashville area.

After completing the build for this one-of-a-kind entertainment, we launched in March of 2020.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
I launched our first mobile axe throwing trailer to capitalize on the music scene, festivals, and fairs that happen in Nashville, in March of 2020.

If you remember March of 2020, outdoor events and gatherings of people suddenly came to a screeching halt. But I had to generate business, so I had to come up with different and unique ways to offer our services – like birthday parties, bachelorette parties, family reunions, and even divorce parties (Yes, you read that right)!

It was never smooth, and any entrepreneur will tell you that was never the expectation. I knew it was going to be difficult, its the length of time the difficulty lasts that’s sometimes more surprising, I think,

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
Music City Axe Throwing is Nashville’s first mobile axe throwing range.

Our trailer will travel to where you are in Nashville! As we are mobile-only, we do not operate a stand-alone facility, and space must be provided for us to park to begin the party!

We look forward to giving you a unique Nashville experience unlike anything else you will find in Music City.
