Captivating singer-songwriter Casey Barnes is set to release a new single ‘Waiting on the Day’, which touches on the sensitive subject of the loss of a baby. Due for official release on 24th October, this beautiful, heartfelt ballad reunites Barnes with his good friend and songwriting partner, Rick Price where they penned the song in Nashville last year.
Drawing on personal experience Casey says ‘Waiting On The Day is a tribute to every parent who has endured the loss of a child whether that be before or after birth and the strength to face life again. This song is also for our baby Grace who we lost two years ago and will forever be in our hearts x’.
Casey is hoping that this song will provide support and comfort to any family who has experienced the loss of a child. It affects so many Australian families and is often a subject matter that people feel they can’t talk about. He hopes the track can offer other families hope through this time.
The clip made its debut on YouTube last night and the track is being serviced to radio from today.
2014 has been an outstanding year for Casey with previous singles ‘Valentine’ and ‘Flesh and Bone’ receiving regular radio airplay nationwide. In addition, both clips have been featured extensively on Foxtel’s CMC.
Previous single ‘Flesh and Bone’ reached #6 on the All Australian Top 20 Countdown and #34 on the CMC Country Charts.
In addition, ‘Flesh and Bone’ reached the finals of two prestigious US based competitions, International Songwriting Competition and Unsigned Only. The International Songwriting Competition alone had over 20,000 entries worldwide this year.
Casey continues to tour extensively throughout the country and will be launching into a full media campaign for the remainder of the year for ‘Waiting On The Day’.
In further exciting news, we can announce today that Casey will be special guest support to US superstar Mariah Carey when she returns to QLD on November 16th to perform at A Day On The Green at Sirromet Winery. Tickets can be purchased for this event at the link below.
