Featured Songwriter Of The Week: Aaron Barker

Aaron Barker was born in San Antonio, Texas, and began his musical career in a “variety band”. He stayed with his band for many years and played everything from Bob Wills to Bob Seger. Driving his bus from place to place, he began playing with original melodies and lyrics hoping to create his own songs. His first attempt, “Baby Blue,” recorded by George Strait on the If You Ain’t Lovin’, You Ain’t Livin’ album, went number one in Billboard. Not knowing what this meant to his future, Aaron continued to work in the band and played songs for anyone who would listen.
Aaron began developing his own sound, and refining his original material in small clubs and cafes where he would play on weekends. One night after a long father and son talk, he wrote”Love Without End, Amen.” Believing this would be a song that he would play for his family, Barker decided to see what would happen if he sent it to George Strait. Strait recorded it and it stayed at the number one position in Billboard Magazine for five consecutive weeks.
Aaron Has had many other songs recorded by artists like Clay Walker, Neal McCoy, Doug Supernaw, Lonestar, Willie Nelson and many other artists.
Aaron says “These are real stories about real life, I’ve lived a lot of life and I also drawn on the lives of people I have crossed paths with.” His background and the knack for honest, heartfelt communication has molded Aaron Barker into a songwriter of depth and power, as well as making him a dynamic entertainer.
