10/22/2012 - Warren Barfield Returns with Triumphant Redbird
Warren Barfield, one of Christian music’s most acclaimed singer/songwriters and in-demand touring artists, returns with Redbird, his first studio recording in four years. Produced by GRAMMY® Award-winning songwriter/producer Wayne Kirkpatrick; Platinum-selling recording artist Bryan White; Bo Rinehart, Bear Rinehart and Seth Bolt of NEEDTOBREATHE; and Barfield, Redbird features 10 songs written or co-written by the artist.
“It was a privilege to tap into the expertise of producers I’ve been such a big fan of through the years,” Barfield says. “I have so much respect for Wayne, and admire his ability to make the right choices with a lyric and a melody. Bryan and I have written together in the past, and this project provided an opportunity for us to collaborate on a higher level. And what was initially planned as a songwriting endeavor with NEEDTOBREATHE turned out to be an amazing studio session where we played and sang together as these songs came to life.”
Redbird is highlighted by “The Time Is Now,” written by Barfield and Kirkpatrick as a plea for honest dialogue and communication on each side of the political spectrum, while encouraging listeners to give voice to their beliefs and convictions. In addition, “Just Let Go” and “Last Try,” collaborations with members of NEEDTOBREATHE, showcase a musical spontaneity and authenticity rarely found in studio recordings. And “For Now,” “Redbird” and “Once You Find Love,” the latter a poignant duet with Barfield’s wife Megan, pay tribute to the importance of family.
Concert-goers across the country will be able to hear music from Redbird at numerous Barfield tour stops this fall. In addition to his own solo dates, Barfield will join David Crowder for a series of concerts in November. Also in November, he will join Kirk Cameron for “Love Worth Fighting For” Marriage Events in Virginia Beach, Virginia; Richmond, Virginia; and High Point, North Carolina.
1/18/2012 - “Love Worth Fighting For” Event Featuring Kirk Cameron and Warren Barfield Returns for Third Season
After two successful nationwide tours, “Love Worth Fighting For” is returning for a third year of events backed by popular speaker Kirk Cameron (“Fireproof,” “Left Behind” series and “Growing Pains”) and singer/songwriter Warren Barfield. Beginning in Montgomery, AL on Jan. 20, “Love Worth Fighting For” will span the entire year. Markets have been announced through April, and include Tallahassee, Fla., Des Moines, IA, Charlotte, NC and Indianapolis, Ind.
The “Love Worth Fighting For” conference focuses on all areas of relationships including one’s relationship with God. The conference encourages people in all stages of life to attend as the event applies to teenagers, single adults, newly married couples and longtime spouses. Tickets range from $20 to $35 each and are available as reserved seats or general admission for singles, couples and groups of 10 or more.

“We have received emails and letters from couples saying this was the last ditch effort that they were going to make. Before they signed the papers, they were going to give it one last shot,” says Cameron. “They walk out of these events holding hands. It is awesome to see what has happened.”
“The 'Love Worth Fighting For' event is a combination of humor, music, honesty and biblical insight focused on encouraging men and women to find the victories on the other side of the battles they face in their relationships,” explains Barfield. “Husbands and wives leave empowered to fight for each other rather than against. After every event I am amazed at the stories that pour in. The event is literally changing family trees. I am grateful to be fighting for love alongside of Feed Your Faith and Kirk Cameron. We all believe it is worth it.”
