Casey Barnes is making a clear statement of intent today announcing his new single, Sparks Fly, new album, Town of a Million Dreams (Friday 17 April Chugg Music / MGM) and the Town of a Million Dreams Tour as the Gold Coast based artist lays out his plan to make 2020 the most successful he has ever had.
Sparks Fly is a romantically themed track from the Australian #1 County Radio artist. It follows hot on the heels of a run of hits including the Golden Guitar nominated, “A Little More” which generated over one million streams and peaked at #2 on The Music Network’s radio chart and “No Other You” (featuring Missy Lancaster). Both “No Other You” and “A Little More” appear on the new album with “Sparks Fly” and 7 other new tracks.
The Town of a Million Dreams Tour will give fans the chance to experience the album played live with the high energy and entertainment levels that Casey and his band have become well known for, supported by Missy Lancaster, Darlinghurst, Liam Brew, and Eight Second Ride.
Sparks Fly tells a story that most of us can relate to. A guy finds himself too shy to ask a girl to dance, looks are exchanged, drinks flow and eventually sparks fly. From its intimate and sultry opening vocal through to a chorus that has an almost pop feel about it, Casey Barnes continues to show that he’s capable of delivering genre bending country hits.
‘I was in Nashville on a whirlwind writing trip in 2019 and found myself inspired by the energy of folks at the many watering-holes across the city. ‘I don’t know if it was the music, the people or the whisky…but the result is a song which was one of my favourites to write on that trip.’
These new releases add to the momentum created from a successful 2019 for Barnes.
Signing a management deal with legendary manager and promoter, Michael Chugg helped propel the hard-working singer to career topping targets.
A headline performance at the Professional Bull-Riding World Cup Finals in Las Vegas, was followed by performances at Nashville’s Whiskey Jam and WME’s The Steps.
