" 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 multiple 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." As explosive on fiddle as on mandolin, the lead and high tenor vocalist has also appeared frequently with Grammy-winning Jerry Douglas and the Earls of Leicester, as well as in annual All Star performances with good friend Barry Bales of Alison Krauss & Union Station. His first pro gigs were in the bands of 15-time Grammy winner Ricky Skaggs and Hall of Fame legend Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, prior to co-founding supergroup Blue Highway in 1994.
