Not that long ago I was not that wild about country rock – but that was before I realised that Australian country rock was doing a nice line in melodies and production that didn’t make everything sound like it was from the same cookie cutter. If, like me, you appreciate a good rock song, the melding of country music sounds and sensibilities with rock can be very satisfying. And so it is with the music of Casey Barnes, who has a new single, ‘Keep Me Coming Back’, and a video to go with it (see below). The song debuted at number 4 on the iTunes country chart. Previous single ‘The Way We Ride’ reached #1 on various Australian country charts, including four weeks at #1 on the All Australian Top 40 Charts.

Barnes’s current album is Live As One.
