SABS 7th Birthday Salute from Jason Barry

Posted: July 14, 2017

This might be the most.... 'countrified' of our #SABS7 Birthday Salutes...
so far!

And isn't it lovely that it comes courtesy of multi-award winning producer, musician and songwriter, New Brunswick's own Jason Barry.

Enter his name and you'll be eligible to WIN a CD copy of BEAUTIFUL FREAKSHOW signed by both Dean Brody & Jason Barry as the daily prize for July 14th, 2017 (click on the picture to read more about the album) and qualify for our HEAVENLY STAY grand prize draw.

Today's prize makes perfect sense - what with Jason being an official member of Dean's band The BRODEO and all! Jason and Dean also teamed up for a tune on this new album. "Memory Lane" marks the follow up to their top ten co-write on CROP CIRCLES, "Another Man's Gold" which scored them a CCMA Nomination for Single of the Year in 2014. WATCH...

And while we're on the subject of Canadian Country Music Association nominations - congratulations are in order - Jason just received another nod for Recording Studio of the year for his Barrytone Studios in Ontario. It should be noted Barrytone has taken home the trophy for the past two years.

This year, however, marks the first in 5 years that Jason hasn't been nominated for Guitar Player of the Year. That's because he's like Oprah!  See you can only take home the title 5 times - then you're distinguished with the CCMA Hall of Fame Honour! That seems perfect for a fella who's played with everyone from Jason McCoy to Jason Blaine and Terri Clark to Michelle Wright, and so many more.  And not to brag, but I was even lucky enough to have Jason by my side on a gig or two way back in the day.

All I know for sure is the man's gonna need a bigger mantel - after having just scored his 4th consecutive Ontario Country Music Association award for Producer of the Year! Amazing right?! But the honours don't stop there.

Jason was just presented with a Certificate of Distinction by Mayor Adam Lordon in his hometown of Miramichi, New BrunswickJason also served as the Grand Marshal for the city's 150th Canada day parade, and played a sold out show for his friends and family.

"I've have been very fortunate to have been raised by a loving and supportive community that shaped my work ethic and 'treat how you wish to be treated' values. I've said it before and I'll always say it again - thank you so much and I love you mighty Miramichi!!" Jason Barry

We're certain they love you right back Jason and will be thrilled to welcome you and your wonderful wife Melissa when you both return to perform for 99.3 The River's Summer Deck Series on July 25, 2017.  For more details on the show click here.

And rest assured we love you too Jason Barry - for always making time to check in with SEA AND BE SCENE and allowing us to share your tremendous successes over the years.  Thank you for this truly cool #SABS7 Salute - we're truly grateful to ya! SABS
