James Barker Band are back with new music.
Fresh off their party anthem “Summer Time”, the boys are back with a new heartfelt track titled “Mama’s Cooking”.
Co-written by “God’s Country” co-writer Hardy during a writing session in Nashville, the ballad is the first release from the band’s new project JBB-Sides.
“I wrote this one way back in 2014, back when I was still farming full time, and would make trips down to Nashville once I had enough money saved up to go for a couple weeks at a time,” says lead singer James Barker.
“Right before I left for this trip, my grandma on my mother’s side had gotten sick, and had to have a procedure done, but the doctor assured us it was a pretty common procedure. A couple hours after I landed in Nashville my mom called to tell me that there had been serious complications during the procedure, and she likely only had a few hours, making it impossible for me to get back in time.”
Barker wasn’t able to get a flight back in time and went into a writing session with Hardy and co-wrote the song the same day his nana passed away.
Fans can expect a new JBB-Sides track every Friday for the next three weeks.
