Country pop artist Shane McAnally started writing songs when he was six, and performing at the age of 12, in his hometown of Mineral Wells, TX. By age 15, he was a featured performer at the Texans Theater in Branson, MO. After his run at the theater, he went back to Texas where he performed at the Johnny High Music Review, as well as at various festivals. He realized, while studying accounting at the University of Texas at Austin, that music was his passion, and he relocated to Tennessee. Soon after his arrival in Nashville and an appearance on the famed Bluebird stage, McAnally signed with Curb Music Publishing. There, he continued to work on his songwriting and was introduced to producer Rich Herring. The two collaborated on the demo of McAnally's song ''Just One Touch,'' which eventually earned him a publishing deal and a recording contract. Along with Rich Herring, famed producer Brian Ahern (Emmylou Harris, Anne Murray) and Mark Bright were also part of McAnally's musical team for the recording of his 2000 self-titled debut. The singer/songwriter is influenced by the vocals of Marty Robbins, Ronnie Milsap, and the Judds, as well as the popular entertaining style of Barbara Mandrell, making him an enjoyable mainstream country performer. ~ Zac Johnson, Rovi
