CMA Fest – Shane Owens

 caught up with Shane Owens at CMA Fest in NashvilleTennessee. Check out what Shane had to say


Shane Owens:

A staunch country traditionalist, Shane Owens built a following in nightclubs of the Southeast for a decade. He opened shows for dozens of major stars, and word from them trickled back to Nashville’s music executives. A new label approached him and in 2005, his album titled “Let’s Get On It” briefly made waves. Its single, “Bottom of the Fifth,” was a hit in Texas and was halfway up the national charts when the label folded. Producer James Stroud (Chris Young, Clint Black, etc.) took him under his wing. A second album was recorded and ready for release in 2009 when Stroud’s record company also went under. There was a silver lining in his second album’s demise, however, as he was able to maintain ownership of the songs he’d recorded with Stroud. These now form the basis of his new album for Amerimonte Records, along with several newly recorded tunes with the esteemed Ed Seay (Martina McBride, Collin Raye, etc.). In 2017, Owens was named by Rolling Stone Country as one of their “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know” and was named “Independent Artist of the Year” at Music Row Magazine’s Country Breakout Awards. His latest single, “Lie,” was released in April of 2018, with a full album coming later this year. Rolling Stone County named the single to its “10 Best Country and Americana Songs of the Week.”
