Since the release of their debut album "Game On", the James Barker Band has enjoyed a wildly successful year. Recently, "Game On" received the award for Country Album of the Year at the 2018 Junos. Their first single, "Lawn Chair Lazy", put them in the record books as the highest charting, debut single from a Canadian artist in Canadian Country Radio history. By their 3rd single, "Chills", they found themselves No.1 on the Canadian Country Radio charts and back in the record books as the only Canadian band to ever achieve a No. 1 on a debut album. Their latest single (Released January 2018) off their next EP, "Good Together", was the #1 most added on Canadian Country Radio and #2 most added on all formats. “Good Together” was also added to Spotify’s "New Boots" playlist during release week.
