Casey Barnes played alongside Bryan Adams, Eskimo Joe and Vanessa Amorosi and had a number one song in Europe singing Marco Demark’s remake of Tiny Dancer. That was before he hit the stage of Australian Idol in 2009. Since that time, his career has continued to soar and this year has seen him return to Nashville, working alongside Australia’s Rick Price, to pull together a whole new album. Though he had the hit in Europe with a dance track, his style is now more Americana – country meets blues meets folk. In this episode, we talk about how his music has taken shape, his family life, and how touring life isn’t always all it’s cracked up to be.
