Golden Guitar finalist Casey Barnes returns with a highly anticipated new album and is ready to amp it up in 2018. With a fitting title, ‘The Good Life’, the album was released on March 9th and saw it instantly race up the charts to land at #1 on the iTunes Country Charts and #2 on the ARIA Country Charts.

Kicking off the album is chart-topping ‘The Way We Ride’, a song that is already familiar on the airwaves. The song debuted at #7 on the iTunes Country Charts and reached #1 on countless country radio charts across Australia including a massive 4 weeks at the top spot on the Country Tracks Top 40 Chart. The high velocity track also caught the attention of PBR Australia, which has seen Casey performing the song across the country for much of last year at their major bull riding events and will continue throughout 2018.

Lead single off the album ‘Ain’t Coming Home’ (released 16th February) is an uplifting feel-good party track that is welcomed as we near the end of summer and is a song that no doubt will resonate with fans and have them on their feet. Radio has welcomed the single which has seen it receive extensive airplay across the country and reaching #1 on various country radio charts.

Recorded in Melbourne and teaming up with acclaimed songwriters Michael Paynter and Michael DeLorenzis from MSquared Productions, ‘The Good Life’ proves that Casey is a force to be reckoned with on the country music scene. The album carves a path of contemporary country, delivering toe tapping songs that are destined to turn into favourite anthems.

Casey’s music has made an impact around the world. He’s had hits in Europe, written, recorded and toured in America, appeared in a top-rating TV show in Australia and played alongside many international artists including Mariah Carey and Bryan Adams and Lady Antebellum.
