- IndieWorld Country Record Reviews
DICK BARNES - "NORTH CAROLINA ...THE PLACE TO BE" - Indie World Country Record Reviews This special song is a "Bluegrass Heaven" cut. Here's some of the best "pick'n" .. "sing'n" .. and "writ'n" in Bluegrass history! Look's like the political world's loss is the music world's gain. DeeJay's get ready for the phones to ring off the hook! It's real easy for I W to make a pick ... it's ... "North Carolina ... The Place To Be". On Comstock ...

Dick Barnes is 100% Country and has written all these wonderful tunes. There is something for everyone with songs ranging from Country to Bluegrass and good ol' Country Gospel. An extra bonus with Dick's writing is his ability to put down some real entertaining novelty numbers. A must CD for Country lovers.
Reviewer: Mark Trail Music A well produced and written track

Reviewer: Keith Brooks
This CD has great songs. My favorites are Make My Good Girl Bad, Fox Hound Boozer and of course Booze It & Lose It. This CD will reach many people by lyrical content and the variety of music it offers.
Reviewer: Chuck Hurley, CEO, Mothers Against Drunk Driving
Booze It & Lose It is a powerful message that we need to eliminate drunk driving.
We have made great progress since MADD's founding in 1980. But it still is the most tolerated, frequently commited violent crime in America. We need to support law enforcement, stop the "catch and release" approach by the courts, make ignition interlocks required for all convicted drunk drivers, and work for advanced technology that will not allow drunk drivers to start their vehicles in the coming years. Great song and it will help to save lives on the highway.
Reviewer: Jim Long, NC Commissioner of Insurance
The music is great and it brings a message of highway safety. The Booze It & Lose It song should be on every juke box in every bar and played before closing time to save lives. Roaring out of the Carolina dirt roads loaded with a humorous but serious message.
Reviewer: Jack Wood,
Dick captures the flavor of Carolina humor and the heritage of "southern" moonshine and politics to bring a serious message about "drinking and driving" in the Booze It & Lose It song. This high stepping country tune is bound to impart to the listener an entertaining reminder that "Drinking and Driving" is a recipe for trouble. A salute to the Law Enforcement Officers who keep our highways safe, "Booze It & Lose It" is a favorite I keep playing over and over. Great Job Dick! A Humorous approach to get your attention with a serious message..
Reviewer: Sheryl Great CD.
Booze It and Lose It should be played at EVERY high school game EVERYWHERE. It's a catchy tune and just may get them thinking. Great song, important message.
Reviewer: Reid Overcash
The Booze It & Lose It song is very well sung, well written and entertaining. The message is one that resonates throughout the music listening public, not necessarily just with country music fans. Love to listen.
Reviewer: Tracy Lee

Reviewer: C. Conner
The Booze It & Lose It song is a great country music song, and is very well written. The lyrics are also a very great way to get the word out about how drinking and driving is a bad thing. Great message!!!
Reviewer: Anna and Jim Citta
Good sounds, great beat,& message in the song Booze It & Lose It. Hope to hit home... A good message and the music is electrifying. Banjo sound is great.
Reviewer: Mazie Laurence
Booze It and Lose It is a message song with a country flair is very appealing. I really like the upbeat tempo and the sound of the banjo in the middle is a real plus. This is the kind of song that Hank Williams Jr. would do. Even Alan Jackson might do it justice with his kind of laid-back smooth presentation. The tune is unique and rousing. I like it very much. I like the message, but the music is outstanding. Great Song! ~ High Spirited and Straight Forward
Reviewer: John Minges
Booze It & Lose It tells the story in a comedic fashion yet addresses a serious subject that has gain national exposure. Congratulations on a great success! I loved this song because the people do drink and drive unfortunately.
Reviewer: Mrs. Mary Lou Fitzgerald
