Shane Owens Donates 100% Of Proceeds Of His Single “19” To TAPS

As a country that still grieves the aftermath of 9/11, there is not a day that we do not remember…Shane Owens’ patriotic tribute song “19” is out now and reminds us all how important it is to never forget. Shane has decided to donate 100% of the net proceeds of this single to the TAPS organization. 

It was a traumatic time for Americans, and for me as a songwriter, I wanted to write a song that would help people faced with emotion and grief to try and help make sense of the tragic event,” Owens states.

The TAPS organization offers help, hope, and healing to all those grieving the death of a loved one serving in America’s Armed Forces. Our overall goal is to increase awareness for the song “19” and generate funds for TAPS.  The single is connecting with audiences everywhere, getting high praise from military families. Nearly every live performance of “19” has  Owens’ hearing another story of personal loss reminding us this story is being lived out in cities and small towns all over this country.

The lyrics are a sobering reminder of the dangers our military members face every day…

But on the day those Twin Towers came down/his whole world turned around he told them all I can’t play ball there’s a war on now/ he marched right in with a few good men and joined the marines at nineteen
