Shawn Lane # 1 for 7 Weeks with
"I Met the Man!"
Shawn Lane has turned heads and garnered cheers since last Summer with a single relaying the true story and miracle of his dad coming back from 17 days in a coma with a supernatural story to tell. The song driven by Lane's songwriting and vocals has been a force on the Bluegrass Today Gospel Chart.
The powerful song I Met the Man exploded into the Top 10 only two weeks after its release on May 15 ... topped the chart at #1 by June 15 ... and shined brightly in the #1 spot for 7 weeks. On a chart known for its continual updated rotation of songs, the staying power of the truth-driven song to hold strong for ** 28 weeks in the Top 10 ** has been almost miraculous.
The song dropped ahead of Lane's third solo album scheduled to release in 2019 called Shawn Lane: Family & Friends. Vocalists and instrumentalists will range from his gifted sons Grayson and Garrett, to Grammy-winning AKUS bass player and long-time friend Barry Bales, to Shawn's beautiful wife Gracie whose angelic vocals and Facebook video posts opened doors to unexpected skyrocketing exposure via social media for the Lane family.
