The Great Song Podcast

A Special 100th Episode with Dave Barnes (Valentine's Day 2020)


Happy Valentine's Day! We’re celebrating 100 episodes with a very special in-studio guest: artist and songwriter extraordinaire Dave Barnes! We had the privilege to pick the brain of one of modern Country and Christian music’s most prolific and successful songwriters (Blake Shelton’s #1 smash “God  Gave Me You” is among his bevy of hits, which inludes cuts from Lady Antebellum, Carrie Underwood, and so many more).
In this episode:
- Ed Cash and the importance of honest producers in the writing and crafting process
- Playing emotional songs live
- Getting the right cover art to convey your album
- The four songs Dave would choose to start his own Great Song Podcast
- Dave plays a new game called  “CCM or Superhero”
- GET DAVE’S NEW SINGLE, streaming NOW on all major platforms!
- HUGE thanks to Annie F. Downs, author, teacher, and host of That Sounds Fun, for allowing us into her studio to record with Dave in person. Give Annie a follow on Twitter at @anniefdowns, and subscribe to That Sounds Fun—it might just change your life!
As always, leave us a review to help the show get in front of more folks, and connect with us for Shenanigans, merch, and more.
