DICK BARNES - "GOOD OL' COUNTRY"IndieWorld Country Record Reviews
Try this on for size ... the CD album includes country, western swing, bluegrass, and there's a humble man's lonely need, moonshiner, white lightning, troubled past, chasin' women, my gal's left me, my good girl needs to be a little bad, working in a coal mine, and drivin' under the influence!  Top it if you can, but I don't think I've ever heard as many sad ass and happy stories on one CD.  Way to go Dick!  Dick Barnes writes, performs and takes a hand in producing his own music.  So, if you wanta blame anyone for this CD being good .. just blame Dick.  Those musicians should be picking in Nashville. A great job by all!  It's on HSP (Hot Star Publishing).

 

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 ...

"Beautiful lyrics that are quite a tribute to the tarheel state. Dick has a very distinct voice that causes one to pause to enjoy the new sound."

Dick Barnes' Good Ol' Country, is one of the most delightful surprises, and album that is pure fun!

5 Star Review! Comstock Records, Great Country music with something to please every audience

Great Country music with something to please every audience

author: Comstock Records

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

The Booze It & Lose It song is reminiscent of the late great Sheb Wooley / Ben Colder.. A song with a serious message that anyone can relate too that the message is clear.. Keep up the great work!! Enjoyed the tune!! Message in the Music.

5 Star Review!  Chuck Hurley, CEO, Mothers Against Drunk Driving

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.

5 Star Review! Jim Long, NC Commissioner of Insurance

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.

 

5 Star Review! Jack Wood, Dick captures the flavor of Carolina humor

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..

4 Star Review! Reid Overcash This song is very well sung, well written and entertaining.

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: 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.

 

4 Star Review! Mazie Laurence,

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

 

5 Star Review! John Minges, The song tells the story in a comedic fashion yet addresses a serious subject

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.

4 Star Review! Mazie Laurence,

Reviewer:  Stuart Cameron

Outstanding music from Dick Barnes
Plenty of variety here from a man who knows what he's doing when it comes to performing music. His style is well-crafted and he feels very comfortable singing these songs. "Born That Way" is the single being promoted here in the UK and Europe and I am sure this track will be very well received by the DJs. There's a very nice variety of styles here to keep the interest going for the listener, and I am sure he will win himself many new fans thanks to this very good collection
