Because of the similarity in their names, members of Ryan Adams' audiences used to prank the singer by calling out requests for Bryan Adams' 1985 hit "Summer of '69," to Adams' annoyance. At a Nashville concert in April, 2015, Adams played the song as an encore.
Following the 9/11 attacks, Adams' song "New York, New York" (written and recorded prior to the attacks) became his breakthrough single.
