NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Neo-Traditional Country singer and Alabama native Shane Owens is re-releasing his holiday tune “Christmas In Dixie,” a song originally sung by Country Music Hall of Fame members, Alabama. Originally released in 2017, Owens blends his rich and bold baritone voice over a mixture of contemporary and classic country music sounds that wraps the notes around the listener’s heart in this classic Alabama inspired holiday song.
“The song ‘Christmas in Dixie’ has always been my favorite Christmas song – not to mention it was recorded by one of my all time most admired bands, the group Alabama,” said Owens. “Since I am an Alabama native it makes it even that much more special to me!”
Owens is also set to help raise money and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis by participating in the Cast For A Cure charity event on October 5-6, 2018 at Lake Guntersville State Park. The event is benefiting the Children’s Hospital of Alabama. Owens will perform a FREE, open to the public acoustic concert, on Friday, October 5 at 7:00 pm CT during the anglers meeting at the Beach Pavilion at Lake Guntersville State Park. Donations benefiting Children’s Hospital of Alabama are tax deductible and greatly appreciated. More information can be found at facebook.com/castforacurecf or ChildrensAL.org.
“I am so honored to be a part of this event this year,” said Owens. “It is a wonderful cause helping our children. My wife and I have been donating for years, and having two kids of our own, we understand the importance of this organization! Can’t wait to see y’all there!”
Shane Owens released his latest musical project, It’s A Southern Thing, earlier this year with six tunes that remains consistent with Owens’ traditional country sound, blended with a modern edge. The first single, “Lie,” garnered positive reviews from outlets such as Billboard and Rolling Stone Country. It’s A Southern Thing can be purchased or streamed here.

About Shane Owens:
Recently named by Rolling Stone Country as one of “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know,” Shane Owens has been building a strong following across the Southeast for more than a decade. His powerful vocal range combined with the emotional lyrical content of his songs has made him a favorite of fans, critics, and his fellow artists alike. After starting his career by opening shows for dozens of major stars in the mid-2000s, the baritone performer attracted the attention of Nashville music executives, and he soon landed a record deal. However, with all the changes in the music industry at the time, his album was shelved and never released. Just like the ‘Never Give Up’ mantra of his lyrics, Owens picked himself up and moved on, thanks to famed producer James Stroud (Tim McGraw, Aaron Lewis, Clint Black), who produced his album, Where I’m Comin’ From with Country music legend Randy Travis as an executive producer. Additionally, it was mixed by Ed Seay (Blake Shelton, Martina McBride, Alabama). For more information about Shane Owens, visit www.ShaneOwensCountry.com.
