Australian country rock artist Casey Barnes is roaring up quite a reputation in the country music scene. The Golden Guitar finalist had a solid start to 2018 when his current album, The Good Life debuted at #1 on the iTunes Country Album Chart and peaked at #2 on the Aria County Album Chart.  Radio has embraced a number of cuts from the album including, The Way We Ride, Set Sail, Be Mine, and his current single, Better Days. Lead single, Ain’t Coming Home also enjoyed consecutive weeks at #1 on the Country Tracks Top 40 chart.

Opening the gates of 2019 with a national tour, Casey’s impressive live performances also earned him a slot supporting The Davisson Brothers and then taking out Groundwater Country Music Festival’s inaugural public voted 'People’s Choice Award'. Casey smashed the competition, receiving double the votes to 2nd place. His latest release, Better Days, was the #1 Most Downloaded to radio, kicking P!NK off the top and currently has over 1.4 Million streams. Casey also branched outside of Australia this year with a U.S tour with shows in Kansas City, Nashville and South Dakota. He'll be heading back over again in November to perform at the PBR World Finals in Las Vegas.

His latest nominations such as Independent Country Music Australia’s 'Most Popular Male Artist' (Winner), Finalist in the Gold Coast Music Awards for ‘Song of the year’, ‘Album of the year’, ‘Artist of the year’, ‘Live Act of the Year’ and most recently 2019 APRA Professional Development Awards finalist, have placed Casey alongside some of Australia’s top artists.

With brand new music on the way Casey has grown his audience to over 134,000 listeners per month, and his recordings have generated over 5 million streams with over 40,000 fans joining in online to tell Casey they’re ready for whatever he’s got coming.
