Max T. Barnes

Vern Gosdin’s “Way Down Deep". He’s been topping the charts ever since. Writing “Let Go of the Stone” by John Anderson 

“At the Sound of the Tone” by Dukes of Hazard's John Schneider and   “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. Further credits include the complete score to 

“A Letter From Death Row” for HBO starring Martin Sheen and Charlie Sheen.

That’s  nine #1's   and hits, and dozens of album cuts with album sales nearing 20 million.


         “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.  did not win it that time around. Among other greats, he was up against his dad, legendary songwriter and Hall of  Fame member, the late Max D. Barnes. His father took home the award that night with  “Look At Us”, a co-write with 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 “Chiseled In Stone”.

Bobby Bare,  Shelly West,  Joe Sun, Linda Davis and Tanya Tucker to name a few. He did tours with Reba, Garth Brooks, The Judds, Merle Haggard, George Jones and too many more to mention.


    In the past 18 months Max T. has toured Australia twice, Ireland four times, Belgium, Scotland, Canada, Norway and Sweden. He has done his shows and songwriting seminars in Denver, Dallas, Birmingham, L.A. and at home in Nashville. He just  scored a cut on Trace Adkins new album called “I’m Gone”. In 2015 Max T. released a single in the UK, a duet with Irish Super Star Jonny Brady, titled “The Craic” (which means a good time in Celtic) The pair enjoyed great success at radio and received a nomination for “Single Of The Year” at IrishTV. 2017 Found Barnes releasing "Hen Party" and "Way Back In The Mountains", a duet with Marty Haggard.
