Amerimonte Records recording artist Shane Owens’ acoustic music video for “19” will premiere on CountryRebel.com tomorrow, in celebration of Veterans Day.
“19” tells the story of a local football star signing up for the military straight out of high school following the terror attacks on September 11, 2001. In the end he pays the ultimate sacrifice as the song describes a life tragically cut short.
But on the day those Twin Towers came down
his whole world turned around
he told them all I can’t play ball there’s a war on now
he marched right in with a few good men
and joined the marines
(Tom Hambridge, Jeffrey Steele, Gary Nicholson)
A portion of Owens’ Veterans Day pre-order album sales will go to The Journey Home Project, a non-profit organization co-founded by Country Music Hall of Fame member Charlie Daniels to support active military, veterans and their families. “The Journey Home Project is thankful to Shane Owens for his commitment in giving back to our veterans. This young artist is very promising and it’s an honor to be brought in on the forefront of his career,” David Corlew, Co-Founder and Chairman of The Journey Home Project.

About Shane Owens
A fan of Country music long before he became an artist, Shane Owens has been building a loyal following in nightclubs 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 since he launched his career as an opener for dozens of major stars in the mid-2000s. The baritone performer soon attracted the attention of Nashville music executives, and landed a record deal. He cut an album – but it was 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.
