Kentucky Performing Arts presents Dave Barnes
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. 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.
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. His past collaborations include artists Lindsey Stirling, Ingrid Michaelson, and Ben Rector, just to name a few. Dave's new album, “Featherbrained Wealth Motel” (October 20, 2023) is overflowing with feel-good vibes and throw-back melodies.
