Australian country megastar Casey Barnes has today released his energetic new single Come Turn Me On, a track that reminds us that there’s nothing better than coming home to the one you love. Casey has also announced a dynamic, thrilling, neon-soaked video to accompany the track.  To celebrate Come Turn Me On, he’ll be hitting the road, kicking off in Adelaide for the Fringe Festival (Today) on March 7, then moving through Prince Bandroom Melbourne, Mathinna (Tas), Winton’s Way Out West Fest, Gippsland Country Music Festival, Toowoomba, the Gympie Music Muster on August 26 and 27 and wrapping up at Savannah In The Round (Mareeba, QLD) on October 1.

With a bunch of chart-topping singles (and albums) already under his belt, Casey Barnes is headed straight to the top again with Come Turn Me On. Evocative of country/pop crossover masters Dan + Shay and Keith UrbanCome Turn Me On is a firecracker of a single, comfortably at home on both country and pop radio and playlists.  Written by Casey and Nashville-based songwriting duo Brown + Gray (who also co-wrote Casey’s number one singles Sparks Fly and We’re Good Together) and produced by production duo MSquared in Australia, a pounding beat and hooky guitars characterise this enticing track.  Speaking on the inspiration behind the song, Casey explains, I’d like to think that we’re trying to shape our own unique sound at the moment.  I don’t really want to sound like anyone else…. With this single, it has that blend of modern country meets commercial pop which I’ve really connected with over the last few years.  The song is about a guy who’s basically travelled around the world, seen his fair share of girls but nothing compares to coming home to the one he loves.”

The video for Come Turn Me On is a full-on production – shot as though all in one take, the clip takes the viewer through a nighttime hotspot filled with neon lights and dark, alluring bars, with clever choreography and fun piece-to-camera moments.  Reflecting on the process of making the video, Casey says “We’ve gone all out with this video and I think it’s easily the most expensive clip I’ve shot to date – but we wanted to make sure this one was pretty special.  My wife Michelle is a creative genius and the whole concept for this video has been her baby.  Colin Jeffs from Ten of Swords Media has brought it to life.  We found this incredible venue in Brisbane called Smoked Garage which is a multi-level event space where each floor has a completely different look to it, so it was the perfect place to shoot.  The concept is that it’s one big party and everything has been made to look like it was shot in one take within the venue, culminating in a big high energy finale out in the side street at the end.”
 

Despite the global pandemic setback, 2020 was an epic year for Casey Barnes, seeing him nominated for ARIA’s Country Album Of The Year with his ARIA #1 Australian Country Album, Town Of A Million Dreams.  And 2021 is set to be even bigger with Casey already lapping up four Golden Guitar nominations (2021 Toyota Album of the Year, Contemporary Country Album of the Year, Male Artist of the Year, Vocal Collaboration of the Year), as he prepares to take his high octane live show around Australia to celebrate Come Turn Me On.  Fans can expect to see the country luminary’s consistently impressive vitality and killer performance chops on full display, with a massive set including all of his chart-topping hits.  Casey says, “I can’t wait to add Come Turn Me On into the set for all our upcoming shows!  We’ve actually created a brand new live show for 2021, and it’s great to finally see some major festivals and events coming back after the pandemic, which we’re thrilled to be playing at in the weeks and months to come.”

Come Turn Me On is out now.

Casey Barnes Australian Tour with New Single and Video

My Style of Country/Rock and Bull Riding Seem to Work Well | Casey Barnes


It’s been such a great start to 2018 for Country Rock artist Casey Barnes. He’s a 2018 Golden Guitar Awards finalist, plays alongside great acts such as Brothers Osbourne, Luke Bryan, Kelsea Ballerini and Dan & Shay and when you throw in his upcoming appearance at the Gympie Muster, you know Casey is one artist you don’t want to overlook!

Australian Country Pop Singer Casey Barnes

 

MT: Can you briefly introduce yourself to the readers of Music Talks? Just a little bit on who you are, where you are from, what kind of music you do… etc.

Casey: Hey guys.. I’m Casey Barnes and am an independent country/rock artist based on the Gold Coast.

MT: What was the inspiration behind the song ‘Be Mine’?

Casey: ‘Be Mine’ is a track I co-wrote and recorded with both Michael Paynter and Michael DeLorenzis in Melbourne. The song is all about a girl who in the past has always been screwed around and treated poorly by guys. She finally meets a guy who promises he’s the ‘real deal’ and in for the long haul and he’s trying to convince her to trust again

MT: The Gympie Muster is coming up, is this your first time there? What can the crowd expect from your show? How did you feel when you were told you’d be playing this year?

Casey: This year will be our second year running playing at the Gympie Muster and we can’t wait! It’s THE most unique music festival in Australia (we think) and its just such a great weekend. We’ll be putting on a rocking show on Muster Sunday playing all the tracks off the new album ‘The Good Life

MT: Do you have any interesting / weird / funny rituals before going on stage that we should know about?

Casey: Ha ha well we do but you need to have a sense of humour. On the whole we’re not an overly religious band and we tend to play a trick on any new band members or players joining us on stage for the night… we normally get everyone in a circle and ask the new band member to lead a ‘prayer’ before going on stage. Gets them every time!

MT: Tell us about the Bull Riding and your involvement! What is that all about? What is it like being part of that community?Australian Country Pop Singer Casey Barnes

Casey: Well the PBR invited me along to sing at their event this time last year at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre which was an amazing experience and shortly after locked me in for the entire 2018 tour so it’s been a blast! My style of Country/Rock and Bull Riding seem to work well and they get some great crowds so I’ve been very fortunate to be part of the PBR family over the last 12 months

MT: What 3 things keep you sane while on the road?

Casey: Number 1 – COFFEE ha. 2 – Knowing my girls (family) are just a phone call away and 3 – normally I’m not on the road for longer than a few days at a time.

What is next for you? Anything cool to announce or news to share?

Casey: I guess we’ll be promoting the new album/single for the rest of this year. We’ve got tour dates booked all the way thru to December so that’ll keep me busy! And keep your eye out for one more new single before the year’s out… looking at a release towards the end of September!
