Aaron began development his own sound, and refining his original material in small clubs and cafes where he would play on weekends. One night after a long father and son talk, he wrote â€œLove Without End, Amen.â€ Believing this would be a song that he would play for his family, Barker decided to see what would happen if he sent it to George Strait. Strait recorded it and it stayed at the number one position in Billboard Magazine for five consecutive weeks.
After a recording deal with Atlantic Records, Aaron continued his writing again and landed two number one singles in a row on George Straitsâ€™, â€œEasy Come, Easy Goâ€ album, â€œIâ€™d Like To have That One Backâ€ and the title cut. In addition Strait included â€œDown Louisiana Wayâ€ and â€œIâ€™ll Always Be Loving Youâ€ on his album â€œLead On.â€ Aaronsâ€™ â€œHonky-Tonkinâ€™ Foolâ€ was the first single from Doug Supernawsâ€™ BNA debut album. Doug also released â€œNot Enough Hours In The Night.â€ George Strait released â€œI Know She Still Loves Meâ€ which can only be found on his box set along with four other great songs of Aaronâ€™sâ€™. â€œI Can Still Make Cheyenneâ€ was released by George Strait and went straight to the number one position. Aaron made the charts his home again with Clay Walkersâ€™ release â€œWatch Thisâ€, and â€œYouâ€™re Beginning To Get To Me.â€ Neal McCoyâ€™s â€œLove Happens Like That,â€ Aaron Tippinâ€™s â€œIâ€™m Leavinâ€™â€ and Lonestarâ€™s single â€œWhat About Now.â€ â€œThe Questionnaireâ€ on Tracy Lawrenceâ€™s â€œStrongâ€ Album is being considered for the next single.
Aaron says â€œThese are real stories about real life, Iâ€™ve lived a lot of life and I have also drawn on the lives of people I have crossed paths with.â€ His background and the knack for honest, heartfelt communication molded Barker into a songwriter of depth and power, as well as making him a dynamic entertainer.

March 3rd of 2002, Aaron released a gift book written about his #1 Hit â€œLove Without End, Amen.â€ The book carries a simple, timeless and universal theme â€œA parentâ€™s Love for a child is truly unconditional.â€ George Strait was kind enough to add an elegant introduction and included a CD of the recording tucked in the back.
Of special interest to people in the Southern tier of the United States Aaron also writes and sings the Blue Bell Ice Cream Commercials. Such as, â€œHave Yourself A Blue Bell Country Dayâ€ and â€œThe Good Olâ€™ Daysâ€.
