February 9, 2016 – Seasoned singer-songwriter Dave Barnes, who will release his ninth studio album Carry On, San Vicente on Friday, March 18th, will hit the road on a national tour in support of the release that will kick off April 2nd in Dallas, TX. Barnes, who received GRAMMY® and CMA nominations for Best Country Song for his #1 song “God Gave Me You” as recorded by Blake Shelton, will make stops in major cities including Austin, Charlotte, Denver, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., New York City and a personal career milestone for the artist with a performance at the Ryman in Nashville on July 23rd. Fans can go to www.davebarnes.com to purchase tickets for the Carry On, San Vicente Tour as well as up to date information on the tour.
Carry On, San Vicente was written by Barnes and co-produced with Ed Cash (Vince Gill, Dolly Parton, Amy Grant) and marks a new sound for the Nashville native who describes the album as a tip of the hat to Laurel Canyon in the 70s with a ton of influences from that era including The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac. Highlights of Carry On, San Vicente include the up-tempo album opener “She’s The One I Love” that Barnes wrote to emanate the 70s; “Nothing Like You” and “Glow Like the Moon,” with soaring harmonies and catchy lyrics these tracks will have fans singing along; and “Need Your Love,” which truly encapsulates the sound that The Eagles are so well known for and will be a standout track for any fan. Carry On, San Vicente is an album that other musicians will respect, fans have waited for, and newcomers will fall in love with.
Barnes has solidified his foothold in the music community over the last fourteen years not only with his music amassing an impressive following with fans, media and even fellow artists calling out his undeniable talent but also working with some of the biggest names in music. He has headlined several sold out tours across the country and has opened for artists including Bonnie Raitt, Taylor Swift, John Mayer, Jonny Lang, Lady Antebellum and One Republic. He has written/co-written songs for artists including Hunter Hayes (“Young & in Love”), Tim McGraw (“Mary & Joseph”), Billy Currington (“Until You”), Terri Clark (“Don’t Start”), Ben Rector (“You and Me”), Kelly Clarkson, Marc Broussard, Matt Wertz, The Josh Abbott Band, Danielle Bradbery and Andrew Ripp. His songs have been featured in movies (“Employee of the Month,” “My Super Ex-Girlfriend”) and TV (ABC’s “Brothers and Sisters,” WB’s “Summerland,” CW’s “Life Unexpected,” Disney’s “Suite Life On Deck,” and Showtime’s “Dexter,” which also featured part of the music video).
