Shawn Lane releases New Single "One More" on July 31
July 30, 2020
Shawn Lane of supergroup Blue Highway is releasing a solo single called "One More" on Friday, July 31. The song penned by Shawn Lane and Ronnie Bowman is Shawn's third single from his upcoming album on Cat Town Music, "Shawn Lane: Family & Friends."
The new single features Shawn on guitar and lead vocals, sons Grayson and Garrett Lane on harmony vocals, Gaven Largent on Dobro, and GRAMMY Award winner Barry Bales on bass.
Of the single, Shawn writes:
"One common thread we all share in this journey of life that we’re on is that we will be knocked down to the ground several times, by several different things. When that happens, we have two choices: either to stay down, or to get back up. This song is about getting back up, no matter how hard it may seem. With God's help, you can, and it'll sure feel good when you do. I was proud to get the opportunity to write “One More” with one of my best friends, Ronnie Bowman. I hope this song helps someone who may be down to get back up again."
