Sam Barber's Blue Collar Tales Continue In The Intoxicating New Song "Streetlight"

The young superstar is back with another painfully relatable tale.

Sam Barber - Colton Kramer

Let's get one thing straight, Sam Barber is a once in a lifetime artist. An old soul oozes out of the 20-year-old Southern Missouri native, captivating fans with themes that make him seem like he has lived many lives. On the heels of his wildly popular song S.O.B.Sam once again dives deep into the psyche of man in "Streetlight."

Narrating the tale of a man who wants to see the world, yet realizing what he had is truly home, Sam taps into the vagabond dreamer in us all with such maturity. "Where does the sun go when you're not around," Sam questions with his signature Midwestern grit. Grappling with his life altering choice, Sam ponders, "I was fine when I left, but I can't stand this now, How many nights do I have alone? Beforе I feel, before I feel whole. Bеfore I feel whole"

As one of country music's most authentic songwriters, the salt of the Earth songs' narrative that proves that Sam is truly wise beyond his years. The Missouri native strikes, a chord, with anybody that has struggled with the feeling of finding their place, admits the chaos of the world.

Sam doesn’t need to rely on over production and heavy instrumentation to get his point across. Maybe that’s why his music connects with his audience so well. A simple story and a simple strum is really all we need. Sam's deeply personal approach to his songs, make him a superstar in the making.

Barber will spend much of his time on the road in coming months, highlighted by his biggest headline run thus far and his Stagecoach debut in April on the Palomino Stage. The epic Till I Return Tour gets underway February 22 with a sold-out show at Chattanooga, TN’s Barrelhouse Ballroom and then travels North America through mid-May. Most dates are now sold out, including shows at such legendary venues as Brooklyn, NY’s Music Hall of Williamsburg (March 23), West Hollywood, CA’s The Roxy Theatre (April 30), and Vancouver, BC's Commodore Ballroom (May 19).

In addition to Stagecoach, Barber is set to perform at a number of upcoming Bulls, Bands & Barrels events, bringing together rodeo and live music in arenas across the United States, as well as at festivals such as Lexington, KY’s Railbird Festival (June 1) and Sacramento, CA’s Golden Sky Country Music Festival (October 18-20).
