#1001 Danny Barnes

…not your typical “Dueling Banjos” style at all. Country Fried Rock chatted with Danny Barnes about his recent album Pizza Box and his mathematical, but not mechanical, songwriting style.

Pizza Box streams live on his site, and can be purchased digitally or via CD. Barnes explains his motives for creating and following his own lead in the music business. Our conversation is for the non-musician, new to his music, and looking for songs of substance.

When Country Fried Rock began, we had not yet developed the radio programs or posts. Enjoy this early start to the show, including our Twitter stream from Danny Barnes’ showcase at the Station Inn during Americana Festival 2010.
