Who sings that "God Gave Me You" song?

I get asked that question about once a day. Who sings "God Gave Me You"?

So I thought I'd give you an answer!

It's Dave Barnes!

OK, so now who is Dave Barnes?

Well, he's a little bit of everything:

Steely Dan jazz-pop, The Blind Boys of Alabama-style gospel, lighters-in-the-air sing-along chorus, delicate, cello-laced ballad...It’s all here.

Amy Grant and Vince Gill made guest appearances on his album, "Chasing Mississippi".

And a little bit of the '80s! Dave Barnes: "I’ve been on a massive Toto kick lately." He also likes Phil Collins’ melodies in Invisible Touch-era Genesis.
