Arkansas Native and The Voice alumnus, Barrett Baber, sponsored by Bad Boy Mowers
Beginning today, Arkansas native and Top 3 / Season 9 of The Voice alumnus, Barrett Baber, joins forces with the heavy duty mowing machine giant, Bad Boy Mowers. Based out of Batesville, AR, Bad Boy Mowers specializes in zero-turn lawn mowers along with other high-quality commercial and residential lawn care equipment. Barrett's soulful singing and showmanship grabbed Bad Boy's attention early on and the Arkansas home-based partnership naturally fell into place.
"We're extremely excited to sponsor Barrett Baber," said Lennie Foree, Director of Marketing for Bad Boy Mowers. "From being a top contender on The Voice television show to the top of the charts, Barrett has been a class act from the get-go. We're excited to see where he takes his talent from here...and we're excited to play a small part."
The new partnership will kick off at the Bad Boy dealer meeting in Little Rock on September 24th, with a full band show from Barrett and a meet and greet with guests. Barrett shares, "It's a perfect fit! Bad Boy Mowers is a company built from the ground up by good people working hard and that's exactly the thing I'm striving to do in the music business. I'm proud to represent Bad Boy Mowers and look forward to what we can do together as our relationship grows."
Barrett's latest release A Room Full of Fighters, produced by Nashville veteran Kenny Lamb and co-produced by Barrett, was released direct to Wal-Mart stores nationwide in partnership with Coca-Cola's summer program. Barrett co-wrote nine of the 14 tracks on the album that includes Coca-Cola's summer anthem "Your Name," and the song "Still Stands" which Rolling Stone calls "A powerful song – an emotional tribute to a fallen soldier."
NBC's The Voice finalist Barrett Baber gave millions of viewers an unforgettable introduction to a rising new artist and entertainer on the country music scene. Blake Shelton says, "Barrett sounds like no one else on country radio. He can be a star in country music." On the heals of a successful US tour, Baber's recently released full-length album A Room Full Of Fighters debuted in the top 10 on iTunes Top 100 Album Charts and will be featured in Wal-Mart stores nationwide as part of Coca-Cola's summer campaign for 2017. An Arkansas native, Barrett's inspiration for singing and creating music started with frequent visits to Memphis TN, only a few miles from his hometown in Marion, Arkansas. On Beale Street and the corners of downtown Memphis, his exposure to street performers and artists steeped in Blues, R&B, Country and Rock would become the influence for his vocal style. From Sam Cooke to Levon Helm, you can hear the past in Barrett's tone, all wrapped in a fresh sound delivered by one of the Southeast's hottest artists.
