Shane Owens’ latest single release, “All The Beer In Alabama,” leaves little doubt why he was recently named by Rolling Stone Country as one of the “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know.” With this new release Owens continues to prove his vocal ability to rightfully rub shoulders with the legends.
All The Beer In Alabama” is the third single release from his highly acclaimed “Where I’m Comin’ From” CD and is gaining instant connectivity with both radio and listeners.
Written by Owens, Dan Murph and Phillip Douglas, “All The Beer In Alabama” offers an alternative to the party songs that proliferate in modern country today. It acknowledges the pleasures of “drinkin’ with the boys” and “shootin’ that 8-ball” but affirms that loyalty, integrity and faithfulness for the one he loves are his greatest priorities.
Everything has been moving so fast since we released “Where I’m Comin’ From,” Owens observes. “The early response from radio on my brand new single has been unbelievable. And with helping to honor Randy and open for Gene, this week especially has been a humbling but joyous ride.”
Feedback from country radio has been overwhelmingly positive so far…
Shane Owens has country in his blood…and I’m not talking about that manufactured “country” that’s coming out of Nashville right now. This is true country, reminiscent of Strait, Randy Travis and Clint Black!” – Kelly Green, WEIO The Farm
Along with his radio success, Owens enjoyed several major milestones this past week. On February 8th he joined an all-star lineup onstage at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena to pay tribute to one of his greatest influences, Randy Travis.
In his performance of “Heroes And Friends,” Owens paid homage to Travis, who served as executive producer for “Where I’m Comin’ From”. The Country Music Hall Of Fame member had previously noted that “Shane has successfully merged yesterday and today to remind us that country will always be in style.”
Following on February 10th, Owens was honored to open for another traditional country giant, Gene Watson, at the legendary Nashville Palace.
