James Barker Band Get ‘Lawn Chair Lazy’ in New Video [Exclusive Premiere]
James Barker Band sure know how to throw a backyard party! The Canadian country group get their summer groove on in the brand new video for "Lawn Chair Lazy," which is premiering exclusively on Taste of Country.
The Ontario-based group consists of James Barker, Taylor Abram, Bobby Martin and Connor Stephen. They formed in 2013, and shot to prominence in 2015 by winning the Boots and Hearts Emerging Artists showcase, which landed them a deal with Universal Music Canada and an all-inclusive trip to Nashville. They also got to open for Thomas Rhett.
“The overwhelming support of our fans during the voting process was one of the biggest surprises of the whole competition,” says Barker. “You don’t realize how many supporters you have until something like that comes along. It’s like our whole local community just blew up."
The group released their debut single, "Lawn Chair Lazy," early in May, and have already reached No. 21 at Canadian country radio.
"We’re very excited for the release of 'Lawn Chair Lazy' and we think it’s going to be on country fans’ playlists all summer," Barker adds.
The band throw the ultimate summer party and jam session in the sunny, fun video for the song, which features plenty of good times, girls and of course, as the lyrics put it, "beer, beer, beer." The group are playing the song poolside as the musical accompaniment for the summer merriment, and the melody is one of those that gets stuck in your head and just doesn't leave, like a particularly fun guest who ends up staying all summer and becomes a friend for life.
