article imageReview: Shane Owens soars on new country album 'Where I'm Comin' From' Special

By Markos Papadatos     Dec 9, 2016 in Music
Singer Shane Owens is back with his new country album "Where I'm Comin' From," which has a neo-traditionalist vibe to it.
Owens' album opens with the mid-tempo "Where I'm Comin' From," where his baritone vocals are reminiscent of country musician Easton Corbin. It is followed by the fiddle-driven ballad "All the Beer in Alabama."
"Country Boy Can" is more mid-tempo and a neat country love tune. It continues with the acoustic ballad "Blame It on a Woman." In "Alcohol of Fame," the listener can recall Joe Nichols, and "Country Never Goes out of Style" is reminiscent of early George Strait.
After the ballad "God and the Ground She Walked On," veteran country star John Anderson duets with him on the up-tempo "Chicken Truck." "Nashville You Ain't Hollywood" is wittier than the other songs on the record. His album closes with the ballad "19," as well as an extended version of the opener "Where I'm Comin' From."
The Verdict
Overall, Shane Owens soars on his new studio effort Where I'm Comin' From. There is a lot of variety on this project, and the songwriting is raw and authentic. It is country to the core, and all 11 tracks on here stand out by a mile. His music is recommended for fans of such country artists as Alan Jackson, George Strait, Joe Nichols, Easton Corbin and William Michael Morgan. This CD garners an A rating.
His album Where I'm Comin' From is available on Amazon.
