Please allow me to introduce Country Music’s next rising star, Shane Morgan. Shane has a sound of his own and is ready to hit the road with his amazing musical talent, and awe inspiring stage presence that will leave the fans breathless. Shane has been featured in "Music's Rising Stars Magazine" and is being played on radio world wide. We are very excited to see Shane explode in the music scene.
Shane was born in Rochester, New York and grew up in Duluth Minnesota, a long way from Nashville, Tennessee where he now makes his home. Shane’s journey towards his love of music began when he was 6 years old and started playing piano. By the time he was 9, he was playing violin in his school orchestra. At 13 he proved to himself and everyone who knew him, that his gift for music extended to singing. When he was 17 he performed “I Cross My Heart” at the Central High School Pop Concert to an audience of 3500. Thus began his dream of becoming a country music star. His Grandpa Charlie had a band during the 1970’s and 1980’s and was a tremendous influence on Shane. He taught himself to play guitar and spent many hours perfecting his style. During this time, he was offered a spot on a local radio talent show and was spotlighted on the local news, where he performed an awe inspiring rendition of “The Cowboy Rides Away”. It is no wonder that George Strait remains his favorite country star.
Shane enlisted in the United States Air Force where he continued his passion for music and did several live performances for the troops, before receiving an honorable discharge.
He immediately moved to Nashville and began his quest to become a country music star.
Shane has performed at several well known Nashville locations, including, Douglas Corner, Bluebird Café, Tootsies Orchid Lounge, Norm’s River Road House and the Nashville Palace, and was also featured at the 2009 CMA Festival, signing autographs and performing for his fans! Add to that, his feature article in “Music’s Rising Stars” magazine earlier this year.
Shane’s music is being played and enjoyed by fans throughout the world. His song “A Little Rain” was at #1 on the country charts and #15 in all music categories in September on the Independent Charts.
Shane will be taking to the road in 2010 to Tour the midwest and raise money for his charity St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, where he recently met a 5yr old little girl battling AML Leukemia. Shane has made a few return visits, singing for the children and there families, listening to each of there story's. Shane also has a charity benefit scheduled for June18,2010 in Iowa.
