Max T. Barnes


Claremorris Town Hall Theatre Presents:

Straight from Nashville

Max T. Barnes

And His All American Band in Concert with “3’s Country”

Sunday, June 9th

Doors: 7pm    Show: 8pm


Max T Barnes and his All American Band will play in the Claremorris Town Hall Theatre and Concert Hall in a benefit Concert for Western Care Association on Sunday, June 9th as part of his 2019 Tour of Ireland, coming to Claremorris directly from Nashville.

Max T. Barnes is a Country Music hit writer who is the son of a hit writer. He wrote his first hit song at the age of 19, Vern Gosdin’s “Way Down Deep”. And he’s been topping the charts ever since! Writing “Let Go of the Stone” by John Anderson – “At the Sound of the Tone” by John Schneider – “Before You Kill Us All” by Randy Travis – 3 Weeks at #1 with “That’s How Your Love Makes Me Feel” by Diamond Rio – and 3 Weeks at #1 with “Love, Me” by Colin Raye, to name a few.

Later that year “Love, Me”, the career launching hit For Colin Raye, also took Max T. to the CMA awards as a CMA Song of the Year Nominee. But Max T. Barnes did not win it that time around … among other greats, he was up against his dad, legendary songwriter Max D. Barnes! His father took home the award that night with “Look At Us”, a song written by him and Vince Gill. ‘My poor mom didn’t know who to root for’, Max T. remembers. ‘I am proud to have been a part of the only father/son competition in CMA history’. His father, Max D., had also won in 1989 with “Chiselled In Stone”.

Between Max T. and his late father they have written 33 #1’s and hits and sold nearly 70 million records. Max T. is branching out by doing live dates singing his hits and his favorites of his dad’s. ‘I love singing “Who’s Gonna Fill Their Shoes” ‘cause everybody knows it’ Barnes states. ‘”Chiselled In Stone”, “Joe Knows How To Live”, “This Ain’t My First Rodeo”, these are the meat and potatoes of country music’ he says. It’s safe to say that when he plays live, he doesn’t run out of material. Among his latest hit singles were two Joe Diffie hits, “A Night to Remember”, “Tougher Than Nails” and “Biker Chick” by JoDee Messina.

In the past 2 years Max T. has toured Australia twice, Ireland six times, Belgium, Scotland, England, Sweden, Norway, Canada and the U.S., doing shows and his songwriting seminars. He just signed a new publishing deal with Eleven Eleven Music in Nashville, and scored a cut on Trace Adkins new album called I’m Gone. Max T. released a single in Ireland, a duet with Irish Super Star Jonny Brady, titled “The Craic” (which means a good time in Gaelic). The pair enjoyed great success on radio and received a nomination for Single Of The Year at Irish TV. In 2018 Max T Barnes won the International Artist Of The Year award by Hot Country TV. He recently just finished producing a new album for Bobby Bare. It features all new songs and an appearance by Chris Stapleton on an amped up new version of Detroit City.

Crossmolina-based band, 3’s Country, will kick off the proceedings on the night. Their female vocalist, Teresa Canavan, is a Western Care Staff member (see This promises to be a sell-out Concert so early booking is advisable.
