Known by his friends and fans as “The Bear,” Ward derives the inspiration for is songs from his experience growing up in the heart of rural America. His singing and songwriting are a tribute to Western traditions and lifestyles that he shares with his heart.
As a fourth-generation farmer and rancher, he writes of the men and women whose lives are entwined with the seasons, the land, and the will of God. Barry began his life’s journey as a Kansas farm boy with cow manure on his boots and diesel fuel on his jeans.
From those humble beginnings, his journey has included performing at the Cultural Olympiad at the 2002 Olympics and Carnegie Hall in New York City.
Along the way he has recorded eight CDs of mostly original music. On Sunday (Feb. 3) he was presented with the Academy of Western Artists’ Will Rogers Award for Outstanding Song Of The Year, “Eli Crow” from his “West Of Dodge” CD.
The Western Music Association honored him in 2012 with four nominations: Western Album of the Year / Songwriter of the Year / Male Performer of the Year / Song of the Year.
