Shotgun Shane's Take Over Tour
Shotgun Shane's Take Over Tour
Shotgun Shane is from a small town, known as Morristown, Tennessee. He was born on November 29, 1991. He grew up as an aspiring athlete, playing multiple sports throughout school, such as, basketball and football. He then decided to do away with sports and put his focus towards his music. He has always been a fan of country music, and even had a great uncle by the name of “Eugene Seal” that has written for country stars like “Travis Tritt”

After reaching high school, he began hanging out with different crowds, which ultimately led him on discovering new genres, such as ‘Rap and Hip-Hop’. In early 2007, he began to write and record numerous ‘Hip-Hop’ songs, that he uploaded to various sites on the internet. He entered competitions, such as, the T-Pain contest on ‘ourstage.com’ and placed in the Top 10, he even won multiple times on a website named ‘dabeetz.com’.

Making a buzz for himself, he began to do shows around the ‘East Tennessee’ area. He has opened up for the “Country-Rap’ Artist known as “Big Smo”, artist “JellyRoll”, and other known artist from the Tennessee area.

Reaching #1 for his hometown on the site, ‘reverbnation.com’, he began to get all sorts of attention from labels, which in 2013, led him to featuring on two singles on the “Ronnie Hudson - Westcoastin’ ablum”, Those two songs were “Don’t Throw Your Life Away” featuring E-40’s cousin “B-Legit”, and “Let The Party Begin” featuring a North Carolina artist named “Canary Julz”.

After writing and recording ‘Hip-Hop’, he then discovered that wasn’t the path he wanted to take with his career. He was always thinking outside the box, and with “Country-Rap” becoming the new “In” thing, he decided to give it a whirl. He then began to write and record the more traditional ‘Country-Rap’ music. He said, “I believe it suites me as a whole, and let’s me reach the fans in a whole new aspect,” and “Since times are evolving, so shall I, I like to have a fresh new sound for the fans.”

As he was writing and recording and adjusting to the new genre ‘Country-Rap’ he was then approached by “DM Nashville”, “Mark Watson, and David Watson’s newly developed record label. He then recorded a demo for them and they seemed to love it. That struck a newly developed relationship between the three, that later on led to him signing to their label, “DM Nashville,” in early February 2015.

Currently, Dilan and the Watson brothers are developing an album in which is arranged of the new “Country-Rap” sound that the people seem to love, but with a whole, brand new twist to it.

Sabin Sharpe grew up hunting and fishing with his father and family in Swansea, SC. Sabin was a well-known athlete, who played on the 12U state championship team from Lexington SC and continued to excel all the way through high school as a recruited pitcher. After finishing high school Sabin joined the U.S. Army and that is where he really began singing and writing songs with his friends and fellow soldiers during their down time. When Sabin got out of the Army he started trying to support his family by landscaping on the side.
Sabin’s grandma saw musical talent in him and nurtured him along, getting him whatever he needed to teach himself to sing, this consisted of using a Karaoke machine, CD’s and a small PA. Practicing everyday people began to notice. However, he never was interested in singing in front of folks but his grandma wanted him to sing in church, so he learned and did eventually do so.
In 2011 Sabin’s dad entered him in the Texaco Showdown singing contest in Orangeburg on a whim, Sabin won the semifinals and came in second in the finals the first time he ever sang on stage. The director of the event pulled his father to the side and told him that he had been in the radio business for close to 30 years and that Sabin had something special. He said that he had the voice, the look and was the right age to do great things. He advised them that Sabin was just green on stage and needed to get a band and become more seasoned. Afterwards, Sabin told his dad that he loved being on stage and wanted to see how far he could go in the music business. So they made a pack to work together and started figuring out how to build a band. In late 2012 they had a band together and they called it the Sabin Sharpe Band.
The Columbia based band hit the stage running in January of 2013 when they played their first show. Powered by the raspy vocals of Sabin, they were on fire playing in your face type of country music that their fans loved. Sabin and his band played over 70 show’s their first year out and never looked back.
