Our Song of the Day is the catchy single, Over All Over Again by Canada's James Barker Band. Penned by frontman, James Barker along with Gavin Slate, Travis Wood and producer, Todd Clark, Over All Over Again is their first single released after signing with Song Music Nashville. The songwriters were inspired by Ronnie Milsap‘s Smoky Mountain Rain and wanted to create a ‘2021 Beatles meets country music’ version of a song.
Barker says, “It’s got a similar vibe to what we released in the past trying to stay to what the James Barker Band sounds like. But it’s kind of a refreshed version of that.”
He adds, “Over All Over Again just felt like the right song at the right time. There’s a kind of blueness to it from the darkness of the chords and melody, but the tempo keeps it clear of any gloomy territory. I love the lyrics because there’s a little bit of that ‘I know this is going to hurt like hell tomorrow, but it’s going to be good tonight’ thing, done in a clever way that makes it a quintessential, heartbreaking country song.”
Formed in 2014 by James Barker (lead vocals/guitar), Taylor Abram (guitar/background vocals), Connor Stephen (drums), and Bobby Martin (bass), the James Barker Band released their debut LP, Game On in 2017, which lead to a string of hits on the Canadian Country charts, as well as a JUNO Award for ‘Country Album of the Year’ in 2018. Their second EP, Singles Only, was released in 2019, followed by JBB-Sides a year later.
