Get To Know Dave Barnes!

May 25th, 2010

KRISTI LEIGH – I’ve been a Dave Barnes fan for years and am very excited that we’ve been playing his new song “God Gave Me You” on WJTL lately.   Dave is a pastor’s kid from Mississippi who went to college to further his drum-playing studies–and for fun, started playing guitar and writing songs!  He’s been at it for a while now, and is finally getting some national radio play!  (We used to play Dave Barnes on the Audiolab since his music has always been cool!)  This guy is full of life, incredibly silly and super talented!  Check out videos below to see Dave telling the story behind his new song and to see him play it acoustically.  But to get to know his silly side, I’ve also included a couple of his random videos…  Enjoy!
