" Audience demand has always been an unstoppable force in the music business... Such is the story of Shawn & Gracie Lane.. who developed a following without ever intending to on Facebook. Shawn is well familiar to bluegrass fans for his 23 years with Blue Highway ... He is widely understood to be one of our most gifted songwriters as well as a powerful tenor vocalist, on top of his mandolin, fiddle, and guitar playing...." ~ John Lawless, Bluegrass Today
Shawn Lane is a 3-time GRAMMY Nominee and 28-time IBMA Award winner with Blue Highway.

Shawn recently appeared with Dan Tyminski on CBS-TV on The Late Show in support of Tyminski's new album "Southern Gothic."
