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.

  • Blake Shelton - Neon Light

    Blake Shelton is just about ready to release his brand new album, "Bringing Back The Sunshine," which features Shelton's brand new single called "Neon Light."

  • Kelleigh Bannen - You Are What You Love

    I first featured Kelleigh Bannen back in January with her second single called "Famous," which was a follow-up to "Sorry On The Rocks" which peaked at #41. The album which was released in 2012, still has no title and I assume can only be downloaded. The new single, her third, "You Are What You Love," she hopes will be the breakthrough single she's been looking for. Being a strong and devout Christian will keep her path straight and with a voice and talent compared to Teri Clark, she should do well.

  • Gwen Sebastian - Small Town Soul

    Gwen Sebastian may be best known, at this point, for her appearance on the second season of The Voice in 2012. She also did a duet with Blake Shelton on "My Eyes" which was no huge surprise since Shelton was her coach on The Voice.  So even though she has tasted #1 success, she has yet to chart anything of her own and think "Small Town Soul" may be her first legitimate hit.

  • Dean Alexander - Live A Little

    Although Dean Alexander grew up as country as country can be, you won't hear him singing about dirt roads, trucks, livestock or drinking beer on a tailgate. Dean Alexander, literally had a $100 left in his pocket when he arrived in Nashville from a one stoplight town on the Ohio/West Virginia border, to pursue his dream. It was while gardening for Barbara Orbison, that he had the chance to promote himself and she signed him to a deal two weeks later.

  • Josh Thompson - Wanted Me Gone

    Josh Thompson released his latest album in 2013 called "Turn It Up" and has only released one song, "Cold Beer With Your Name On It" which hit #27 on the charts. The second single, "Wanted Me Gone," comes almost a year after the album's release so we'll see if holding off will pay off for Thompson who's best work is still "Way Out Here," which hit #15 back in 2009.
