Last year was quite a year Dave Barnes, and 2011 is well on its way to being even better. He’s already off to a great start as he kicked off this past weekend joining Brandon Heath’s Leaving Eden Tour, which is hitting a dozen markets across the southern U.S. into early April. Tour dates are listed below. Additionally, Barnes’ single “God Gave Me You” was not only a hit on CHR and AC radio but has crossed over to Mainstream AC. Officially impacting radio yesterday, the single had already obtained early adds with four stations.
“God Gave Me You” was one of the most played CHR and AC songs in 2010 and continues to be heard on radio stations across the nation. According to Billboard’s year-end charts, it hit top 3 and was the 15th most played song of the year at CHR.
Barnes’ vocal talents and songwriting abilities are also being shared by other popular artists. “Until You,” one of his first singles from his CD Brother, Bring The Sun, was recently cut by country artist Billy Currington, and Barnes also joined Francesa Battistelli to co-write and share vocals on “Emily (It’s Love),” which appears on her brand new release, Hundred More Years.
