Musical artist and Alabama native, Shane Owens, will host the world famous Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree at the Troubadour Theatre on Saturday, February 22nd. Shane will take the airwaves by storm with a wide variety of songs from the classic sounds of country music, to brand new songs featured on his latest album, Thankful For Country Music.
The Ernest TubbMidnite Jamboree tapes at 10 P.M CT, airs live on 650-AM WSM, and worldwide online at Midnight CT. Saturday will mark the 3,801 broadcast of the Midnite Jamboree, the second longest running live radio show in history, following only the Grand Ole Opry.
“I am so excited to be appearing on the legendary Midnite Jamboree,” Owens declares. “This will be my first time hosting the historic radio show. I can’t wait to share our music and experience the atmosphere of great country music and the tradition that lives on in that theatre. Many of the greats have played on the Midnite Jamboree such as Loretta Lynn, Alan Jackson, Marty Stuart, Garth Brooks, and even Elvis. Now, I get to be a part of this show that is still going strong after seven decades.”
As part of the historic evening, Owens proudly announces his special guest to be none other than fellow Alabamian and previous ACM nominee, Ashton Shepherd.
Shepherd is as country as they come,” Owens remarks. “I have always loved her music and am so excited she can join us Saturday night!”
While participating in the Country Radio Seminar, Owens continues to promote his latest single “Hard Luck Girl,” as well as his new album Thankful For Country Music.
Known for being one of the few modern day country artists who still pays homage to the old-school classics, Owens is committed to keeping the true sounds of country music alive.
During CRS, Owens surprised radio programmers with the announcement of “Love Me To Death” as the next single to be released from his latest record.

About Shane Owens:
Named by Rolling Stone Country as one of the “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know,” and awarded 2018 Music Row Independent Artist of the Year, 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), country music legend Randy Travis, who co-executive produced his first album, Where I’m Comin’ From, and Amerimonte Records. Never one to sit still for long, Owens followed up with his most recent release It’s A Southern Thing and is currently impacting at radio with his latest single “Hard Luck Girl” from his latest album, Thankful For Country Music.
