“With a pure-country baritone and a stubborn love of timeless, gravel-road themes, Alabama native Shane Owens has been waiting on his big break for a damn long time. It may have finally arrived with his new album, Where I’m Coming From..”
-Chris Parton, Rolling Stone Country
"If you're wondering where all the 'old school' country twang has gone, Shane Owens has it in spades right here. If actual country music doesn't turn your crank, better look elsewhere."
- Chris Diestler, KQBA-FM
"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

About Shane Owens
Recently named by Rolling Stone Country as one of “10 New Country Artists You need To Know,” Shane Owens has been building a strong following in nightclubs across the Southeast for more than a decade. His powerful vocal range combined with the emotional lyrical content of his songs has made him a favorite of fans, critics, and his fellow artists alike. After starting his career by opening shows for dozens of major stars in the mid-2000s, the baritone performer attracted the attention of Nashville music executives, and he soon landed a record deal. However, with all the changes in the music industry at the time, his album was shelved and never released. Just like the ‘Never Give Up’ mantra of his lyrics, Owens picked himself up and moved on, thanks to famed producer James Stroud (Tim McGraw, Aaron Lewis, Clint Black), who produced his new album, Where I’m Comin’ From with Country music legend Randy Travis and industry executive Steve Popovich, Jr. as executive producers and mixed by Ed Seay (Blake Shelton, Martina McBride, Alabama).
