Mineral Wells native up for four CMA awards

“I have gotten to work with so many people in the last year, it’s hard to say favorites,” Shane said when asked who he has most enjoyed working with. “It’s just a matter of people finding what you do interesting enough to pull you into their world and let you sort of influence them. It’s hard to say. Country music singers and musicians are all such down-to-earth, great people. They’re people you’d be friends with anyway. There’s just not a bad one in the bunch.”

Shane even lets his mom run in his star-studded circles. Just a few weeks ago she said she met Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Luke Bryan and Jake Owen.

“They’re just all great people,” she said. “They’re just like me and you.

It’s really exciting for Shane. And all of Nashville loves Shane. He is so loved and has so much support there.”

Adding to his growing repertoire, this Renaissance man of country music is now also in the process of opening a new Broadway musical.

Shane has co-written the music for “Hee Haw” the musical, loosely based on the famous television show. It’s a love story with familiar characters that Shane has been working on for over a year.

The first table reading was this past week and Shane hopes the show can be on the Broadway stage by 2015. Before he visited New York for that first reading, he told the Index he is so new to the process of Broadway productions that his trip would feel like “country comes to town.”

“It’s a super exciting process I have loved,” he said. “It’s a totally different part of my brain. It’s a completely family oriented show. I really have the best of hopes for the show. It could be great.”
