Shane Reunion

Shane is former middle school teacher turned dreamer... a 2017 "CMA Emerging Artist" and Songwriter with a grass-roots following that is growing like wildfire. "I grew up in a working class family living paycheck to paycheck, and it taught me something about appreciating people and working hard," Shane says. And Shane does truly appreciate people. It's why he puts on they type of concert that leaves him sweating head-to-toe from giving it his all. Between his performances and "real-life" songwriting, Shane is now catching NATIONAL attention... with over 600,000 online views of his "Tattoos" music video and national TV airplay on GAC & Country Network, we'd say he's striking a chord. "Tattoos" climbed the country radio charts... becoming a nation wide Top 40 hit! Now Shane is using his platform to give back to young folks and their communities... he did a 30 city "Drug Free Tour" for high school students this past Spring. "It must be the old teacher in me," he says. Shane is bringing it full circle by giving back to the types of communities that have helped him get where he is today. While he's regularly performed on the most famous stages in country music, like being a house band at the 2,500 seat Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville, Shane enjoys returning to perform in the small towns he loves so much. Needless to say, this is not a show you want to miss!
