PERRYVILLE – Perry County native, Sam Barber, is set to play at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville this Saturday.
Sam is from the Brazeau/Frohna area.
“I was raised on a farm in a small town in Perry county,” he recalls. “I’ve always been surrounded by a supportive family and an abundance of friends. I was always the kid that never participated in music class or music performances.
“My music journey has been completely unplanned and my success continues to astound me. When I was 16 I picked my great grandfather’s Gibson…. out of tune and with five strings, I fell in love with the art of playing. I soon learned that I also had the God-given talent to sing along. I want to deliver songs that make people feel them in their soul. Above all I want to stay true to my faith, the man I truly am, and the type of music I want to make without boundaries or conforming.”
“The opry to me has always been a staple in music and a place where real musicians go to show their most meaningful words and lyrics. I remember watching the opry with my parents growing up and always being in awe of the people who stood on that stage and sang their hearts out. Therefore getting the call and hearing that I have the chance to do what so many talented and prestigious people have done before is just a feeling and honor that I believe my brain has yet to process.”
“I just want to say thank you to everyone who has supported me and made this at all possible. This is an experience that I will definitely never forget!”
