Shane Owens To Re-release “Christmas In Dixie” Single For Holidays; Set To Help Raise Funds For ‘Cast For A Cure’ Charity Event
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
new album, Where I’m Comin’ From with Country music legend Randy Travis
and industry executive Steve Popovich, Jr. as executive producers and
mixed by Ed Seay (Blake Shelton, Martina McBride, Alabama). For more
