New York, NY (Top40 Charts) JUNO and Canadian Country Music Award winners James Barker Band are excited to release their sophomore EP, Singles Only, today through Universal Music. The seven track EP includes their anthemic love song, "Good Together" which was the most spun Canadian Country song in 2018 at Country radio plus their latest single "Keep It Simple" which is the most streamed domestic song in country music so far this year. Today, James Barker Band release the video for a new track, "There's A Drink For That", which premiered exclusively on Billboard, commenting on the track specifically, "hand snapped rhythms, sunny guitar parts and a sing-along chorus make 'There's a Drink For That' the ideal song for the live setting."

On Singles Only, the band comments, "It feels like our sound has matured, but it still stays true to what we want. Whether it be our traditional country influences, our pop influences, or anything in between, it's still just has that JBB stamp on it that we hope all of our fans are gonna be really excited about."

James Barker Band have been on a meteoric rise since the four burst onto the scene with their major label debut just three years ago. Along with their national awards and record-breaking metrics, JBB have a list of international accomplishments unprecedented for a domestically signed band - over 100 million global streams on their debut EP, the only Canadian signed country act to play CMA's C2C Festival this year in London, UK & Germany this year plus the recent Country Music Association (CMA) nomination "Global Country Artist of the Year".

The release of Singles Only follows James Barker Band's debut EP "Game On" (April 2017). Their first five singles have all reached the top-10 on Canadian country radio, already achieving 1 Platinum and 5 consecutive Gold singles. The James Barker Band has had the most spun song by a Canadian artist on Canadian country radio in both 2017 (Chills) and 2018 (Good Together). "Game On" was awarded "Country Album of the Year" at the 2018 JUNO awards. Their first #1 Canadian country radio hit "Chills" also reached #46 on the American Billboard Country Chart, they are the first domestically signed act to do so. The band have made history with the SOCAN Songwriter Prize nomination for their song "Chills", which is the first ever country music nomination for this prestigious all-genre award. This record-breaking single was also awarded "Single of the Year" and "Best Selling Canadian Single" at the 2018 Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) Awards.

The band have also announced a direct support slot to Tim McGraw at the Calgary Saddledome in July, among a list of exciting Canadian summer festivals. Stay tuned to more show announcements on the James Barker Band website.
