SOCAN Creative Executive, Nashville and Los Angeles, Liam Russell presented two SOCAN No. 1 Song Awards to James Barker, co-writer of two chart-topping country songs by the James Barker Band: “Meet Your Mama” and “Over All Over Again.” Russell awarded the trophies to Barker on Oct. 30, 2023, in Nashville.

“Meet Your Mama” scaled the peak of the Billboard Canada Country Chart on May 8, 2023, while “Over All Over Again” topped the same chart on Sept. 25, 2021. Both songs are co-written by Barker with fellow SOCAN members Todd Clark, Gavin Slate, and Travis Wood, and published by Trash Man Songs.

All of Barker’s co-writers were previously awarded for “Over All Over Again,” and will be honoured at a later date for “Meet Your Mama.”

SOCAN congratulates them all for two more chart-topping songs in their string of hits – another great achievement!
