“blending country and blues with pop and R&B.” – Nashville Noise


Although born in South Carolina, singer/songwriter Dave Barnes spent most of his childhood in Mississippi, where he formed an early attachment to hip-hop but was also exposed to classic soul, blues, and R&B by his parents. He later enrolled at Middle Tennessee State University and began writing songs for other artists. Barnes also played solo shows on campus, and by the time he graduated with a degree in recording industry management, he’d decided to pursue his own music career. 

Barnes moved to Nashville, and gravitated toward the city’s acoustic folk scene, though the desire to make more groove-oriented music convinced him to assemble a full band. Barnes’ soulful pop songs won him the support of artists like John Mayer, while the spiritual tone of his lyrics earned some support from the Christian music scene. 2010’s What We Want, What We Get became a surprise Christian hit, debuting in the Top Five on the Christian charts, thanks in part to the single “God Gave Me You.” A year later, Blake Shelton recorded “God Gave Me You” on his Red River Blue album and his version topped the country chart, earning Barnes a Grammy nomination in the process.

Dave has had over 100 songs recorded by other artists such as Florida Georgia Line, Tim McGraw, Reba McEntire, Dan + Shay, Carrie Underwood, NEEDTOBREATHE, Billy Currington, and countless more. Of those songs, he has landed two #1’s with “God Gave Me You” (Blake Shelton) and “Craving You” (Thomas Rhett and Maren Morris), a #2 with “You” (Dan + Shay), and a #13 with “Like a Lady” (Lady A). His past collaborations include artists Lindsey Stirling, Ingrid Michaelson, and Ben Rector, just to name a few. Dave’s new album, 2023’s Featherbrained Wealth Motel is overflowing with feel-good vibes and throw-back melodies.
