Reba McEntire. Luke Bryan. Kelly Clarkson. Kenny Chesney. LeAnn Rimes. Florida Georgia Line. The Band Perry. These are just a few of the artists/duos/groups for whom Shane McAnally has written songs.
In 2014 alone, Shane has already taken home two Grammy Awards (for Best Country Song: “Merry Go Round” and Best Country Album: Same Trailer Different Park), and now, you can add another trophy to this sensational songwriter’s shelf. Today, The Academy of Country Music Awards announced the winners of the awards that will not be presented during the live television awards show (April 6th live from Las Vegas), and Shane was named the ACM Awards Songwriter of the Year.
Recipients of Special Awards, Industry Awards, Studio Recording Awards and Songwriter of the Year honors will be celebrated at the 8th Annual ACM Honors event on September 9th at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee.
Congratulations to Shane McAnally on another milestone in Country Music. We are so thankful for the creativity, passion, and talent you bring to the industry!
