Rolling Stone has unveiled a new feature in its latest issue called "Influences," where a current artist explains what music inspired them.

Ryan Adams is the first artist featured, and he lists a quite a variety of his influences: Black Flag, The Strokes, Emmylou Harris, Sonic Youth, Nas, Jerry Garcia, Hüsker Dü, and Mariah Carey.
