Brand New With Barnes – The Week in Review for Aug 11 to Aug 15 [VIDEOS]
Brand New With Barnes features new songs from well known artists and singers you’ve never heard of before. This, is your weekly recap in case you missed some.
Darius Rucker will be releasing his fourth country album on August 25 and it’s all about a homegrown theme which is obvious with the first release called “Homegrown Honey.” The tune was co-written by Charles Kelley of Lady Antebellum. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any kind of a video, anywhere, of any kind.
Sweetwater Rain is made-up of lead vocalist Danny Rivera, whose voice plays to the musical mix of country and rock, lead guitarist and vocalist Fred Stallcup and Thomas Hewlett, who completes the trio on bass guitar and vocals. The guys were all invited to a song-writing session and immediately hit it off and formed a band attracting a lot of attention and bringing them as an opening act for ZZ Top, Kenny Chesney, The Band Perry, Little Big Town, Kenny Chesney and most recently for Rascal Flatts.
David Fanning is much more than just a ‘new artist’ on the scene. Fanning is actually a producer who has worked with Parmalee and Thompson Square on their albums and the other three in the production company, along with Fanning, moonlight as Jason Aldean’s touring band. His first radio single called “Drink You Away” (currently #58) is actually a cover originally done by Justin Timberlake.
Native Run is a new band out of Nashville comprised of Rachel Beauregard, known as “The Girl,” and Bryan Dawley, known as “The Hair,” according to their Facebook page. They are a very instrument-driven group with acoustic guitar, banjo and mandolin and ooze country themes and choruses we can all sing to. Their debut radio single, “Good On You,” was released
Joe Nichols still running on hot with his last album called “Crickets.” The third single, “Hard To Be Cool” will be hard to follow the first two singles, “Sunny and 75,” followed by “Yeah” which both saw themselves going #1.
