Big Shane Thornton

Shane is just a good ole’ Arkansas boy who loves to get behind his bass guitar, piano or an old flattop acousitc, and let his heart pour out. Shane has been singing and performing as long as he can remember. At age 12 he used to sneak in to set in with his step-dads band; Shane was hooked! Not long after, he started writing his own songs. Shane is the kind of writer that puts his heart into every song not only because he feels the song deserves it, but he shares his heart with the rest of the world!
