James Barker Band Collaborates with Dierks Bentley On “New Old Trucks”

James Barker Band collaborates with Dierks Bentley on “New Old Trucks” out today, October 8th, on all streaming platforms. Learn more about the brand new track below.

Back in May, Platinum-selling Canadian group, James Barker Band landed their deal with Sony Music Nashville/Villa 40. The foursome have become ones to look out for here in the American country music landscape. Clearly artists and fans alike have taken notice. Today, the group released a new song with Dierks Bentley called “New Old Trucks.”

The collaboration between the band and Bentley flows effortlessly. Their seamless transition from one voice to another is both enticing and alluring. “New Old Trucks” is a song that screams nostalgia. There is nothing like singing about a truck that has been with you through it all.

“Never gonna find a new one like this // ‘Cause’ they ain’t making new old trucks // Can’t fake the fade or the rocker panel rust // Dent from a fence post I didn’t see coming // Scratch on the hood from her Levi buttons // Daddy hadda pull the first 100K // I drove the rest, wouldn’t sell or trade // That amount of miles or memories for a 1000 bucks because they ain’t making new old trucks”

The jam is one of those songs we are all going to relate to because of our own experience with irreplaceable and sentimental items in our lives. The clever wordplay that JBB and Bentley weave throughout the song is another layer that makes it special. Congrats to them on a great collab!

James Barker Band Inks Deal with Sony/Villa 40 and Release New Song

Platinum-selling Canadian group, James Barker Band has inked a deal with Sony Music Nashville/Villa 40 and released a brand new song to celebrate, “Over All Over Again”. Available now, May 14th, on all streaming platforms, take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new song.

“Over All Over Again” is a song about two people that keep finding themselves back together, in one of those ‘never really over’ relationships. It always starts the same way, talking and flirting over drinks at their spot and one thing leads to the other like it always does to neither of their surprise, like they’re not over all over again. Then when the morning comes, they go back to being over all over again. The cycle comes and goes like clockwork and neither of the two seem to resist the inevitable each time they see it coming. 

“Here we are again who would’ve guessed // In the same old bar, our friends they all left // when the beer switched to whiskey and we couldn’t stop // you leaned in to kiss me, it sure feels a lot // like dejavu, our old song comes on, baby right on queue // it sure don’t feel wrong, all caught up in this moment, don’t care how it ends // feels like we ain’t over all over again”

The track marks the first release with their Sony Music Nashville/Villa 40 team. Although the band, formed in 2015 by Taylor Abram, James Barker, Bobby Martin, and Connor Brock Stephen, have had previous success in Canada with their #1 and platinum-certified hits, “Chills” (2017) and “Keep It Simple” (2019), this new release establishes a brand new chapter for the foursome. As they consistently build their massive fanbase in Canada, James Barker Band introduces themselves in the U.S. with this new music that continues to reflect their unique sound and style. Many of their songs have given a very laid-back vibe paired with upbeat music and effortlessly flawless vocals. “Over All Over Again” is no different, although it speaks to a relatively more serious situation than the happy, upbeat, summer-vibe they’re used to. We look forward to hearing more from the group!
