Album Notes
Booze It & Lose It is one of numerous songs created and recorded by North Carolina songwriter and musician Dick Barnes. It is a novelty country genre song with a strong bluegrass crossover sound. Although humerous, it sends a clear message. "Don't Drink And Drive" This song was given limited release in North Carolina to gauge public reaction. The results were very positive. The song is now being released nationally.

Dick Barnes has been performing since the age of three. Coming from a family of 12 children that made up two gospel quartets and a duet, Dick's early years in music were spent performing in many churches throughout the south. His deep musical roots broadened over the years to include performing country western and bluegrass music. His extraordinary gift for writing and performing songs is evidenced by the works on this CD. Dick's future plans include the release of more songs he has written. Dick Barnes is a former member of the North Carolina State Senate and North Carolina State House of Representatives.

Dick said "The greatest accomplishment of any songwriter or musician, is the gift of a song that has a positive impact on the lives of those who hear it. I am confident the Booze It & Lose It song will continue to save lives on our highways by encouraging those who have had one drink to many to think twice before driving.

Jim Long

Great song and it will help to save lives on the highway
The music is great and it brings a message of highway safety. This song should be on every juke box in every bar and played before closing time to save lives.

Comstock Records

Great Country music with something to please every audience
Dick Barnes is 100% Country and has written all his these wonderful tunes. There is something for everyone with songs ranging from Country to Bluegrass and good ol' Country Gospel. An extra bonus with Dick's writing is his ability to put down some real entertaining novelty numbers. A must CD for Country lovers.


Great Traveling Music
Perfect CD to listen to while traveling. Easy to listen to, sing along with music. Nothing like good ol country!


Message in the Music
Great CD. Booze It and Lose It should be played at EVERY high
school game EVERYWHERE. It's a catchy tune and just may get them thinking.

Mrs. Mary Lou Fitzgerald

I loved this song because the people do drink and drive unfortunately
This song should not only be played on Holidays that the roads are heavily traveled but everyday.

John Minges

Great Song! ~ High Spirited and Straight Forward ~
The song tells the story in a comedic fashion yet addresses a serious subject that has gain national exposure. Congratulations on a great success!

Mazie Laurence

A good message and the music is electrifying. Banjo sound is great.
A nessage song with a country flair is very appealing. I really like the upbeat tempo and the sound of the banjo in the middle is a real plus. This is the kind of song that Hank Williams Jr. would do. Even Alan Jackson might do it justice with his kind of laid-back smooth presentation. The tune is unique and rousing. I like it very much. I like the message, but the music is outstanding.

Jack Wood

Roaring out of the Carolina dirt roads loaded with a humorous but serious messag
Dick captures the flavor of Carolina humor and the heritage of "southern" moonshine and politics to bring a serious message about "drinking and driving". This high stepping country tune is bound to impart to the listener an entertaining reminder that "Drinking and Driving" is a recipe for trouble. A salute to the Law Enforcement Officers who keep our highways safe, "Booze It & Lose It" is a favorite I keep playing over and over. Great Job Dick!

Anna & Jim Citta

Chuck Hurley, CEO, Mothers Against Drunk Driving

Booze It & Lose It is a powerful message that we need to eliminate drunk driving
We have made great progress since MADD's founding in 1980. But it still is the most tolerated, frequently commited violent crime in America. We need to support law enforcement, stop the "catch and release" approach by the courts, make ignition interlocks required for all convicted drunk drivers, and work for advanced technology that will not allow drunk drivers to start their vehicles in the coming years.
