Christmas Countdown! New Video!
Thank you SO much for all the love for "A December To Remember." I love this record so much and I'm so happy to hear you are enjoying it too!
Thanksgiving is over so it's now OFFICIALLY time for all things Christmas. For the next 4 weeks I'm going to be sharing things I love- a list of favorites if you will- about Christmas..making it a December to remember....;) (pun intended)
But business first- I'm beyond excited that we have already sold out the Christmas show on December 13th in Nashville, but I REALLY want all of you to be a part. We're partnering with Stage It to broadcast this to YOU. At home. (in your pajamas). There is going to be tons of special guests, so you don't want to miss it. Get your tickets HERE
and we MIGHT have shot something to help promote the Christmas Album
Since we're talking about Christmas music- here are some of my favorite Christmas albums you should add to your collection.
1. Russ Taff - A Christmas Song
2. Vince Guaraldi - A Charlie Brown Christmas
3. Michael Buble - Christmas
4. Harry Connick Jr - Any of His Christmas Albums
5. Amy Grant - A Christmas Album
Let the holidays begin!
PS If you don't have "A December To Remember" you can get it at iTunes or at my Store
A December To Remember
People of the world - or whirled, depending on who's juicing these days.
THE CHRISTMAS ALBUM IS OUT!! That's RIGHT. A DECEMBER TO REMEMBER is officially out and ready to be heard. I am SO excited about and proud of it. It makes for a GREAT early gift! (wink wink)
A couple of years ago, i asked my dear friend Al Andrews of Porter's Call to write and read a story at my Christmas concert here in Nashville. The only thing i really told him was i was going to play the song "mary and joseph" afterwards. This book is the story he wrote. SO amazing. He's read it at the show the last two years, and had enough requests that he decided to make a book of it - it's a BEAUTIFUL story. You can grab A DECEMBER TO REMEMBER and A WALK ONE WINTER NIGHT on my store. They make GREAT gifts (wink wink wink)
It's time for another Christmas Show! I am SO excited this year to be playing the Christmas show at War Memorial, a beautiful venue downtown here in Nashville. Come on out and bring your friends/family/that one awkward uncle. (wink wink wink wink)
VIP Tickets (includes premium seating, meet & greet, private pre-show acoustic performance, & autographed poster)
Early Merry Christmas! (wink wink wink wink wink)

Oh you guys - SO - LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS OF NEWS.
Yeah. That much. And many.
First - I'm officially independent - meaning - i'm on my own again - not signed to a label anymore - and that means a few things, which are awesome things - 1. I can release as much music whenever i want - so i'm hoping to be releasing more music more frequently - maybe that can be my new motto -
DAVE BARNES, MORE MUSIC, MORE FREQUENTLY.
