He’s the man behind the most heartwarming country hit in recent memory – the lump-in-your-throat anthem to step-fatherhood, “My Boy.” The road ahead is rarely a straight shot, and with Backslider, his full-length album debut on Wheelhouse Records, he gives that truth a soundtrack. Like “My Boy,” Shane co-wrote each of the 15 tracks on Backslider, painting a sonic “bigger picture” of not just himself, but life in small-town America – just as gritty as it is graceful. “I Will Run” kicks the album off with an epic blast of classic rock optimism, working like a preamble. Unlike “My Boy,” with Shane stepping into the role by choice, his new song, “Miles,” traces a different route to coming of age – but that same country wisdom applies. Always forward, never straight.
