USO Tour

Shannon joined James Otto on a “life changing” USO Tour to Iraq and Kuwait in April 2011. Here’s a couple of videos from James Otto’s collection that shows a little about their trip, so you can hear it in their own words. More videos coming soon! Keep posted.

Happy Memorial Day, and thank you again to all who are serving our country, all who have served, and those who have given up their lives to preserve our freedom. We appreciate you.

Shannon Lawson interviewed on The Tony Rose Show on February 25, 2011

This interview preceded The Galoots show that took place on February 25, 2011. It was the first time that Shannon Lawson & The Galoots played a show in Bowling Green, KY for 12 years. The event was held at the Sloan Convention Center in Bowling Green. After twelve years, the fans in Bowling Green proved to remain a faithful bunch- we sold out our VIP tables and packed the room.

Thank you again to our sponsors: White Oak Hill Music Production, Allied Energy and The Great Escape. We couldn’t have put on such a great show without your help!

Thanks also to our many media partners, including Tony Rose at SAM 100.7FM and his awesome intern Nick Garrison, who recorded the audio for this video.

Thank You For Visiting

Blending country and bluegrass with healthy side portions of blues and rock & roll, singer/songwriter Shannon Lawson was born in Taylorsville, KY. Lawson’s family was full of amateur musicians who had frequent picking sessions at home, and he first began trying his hand at his uncle’s guitar at age four; three years later, he got a nylon-string acoustic of his own.

In high school, Lawson formed a rock band, but along with a slew of hard rock covers, he threw in twangier numbers by John Anderson or the Eagles to the setlists. After graduating from high school, Lawson relocated to Louisville to attend college and in his freshman year, he scored a gig with a local blues act (all of whom were African-American, except for Lawson), first playing lead guitar and then adding lead vocals to his resumé.

The Galoots released two successful self-distributed albums.

While in the Galoots, Lawson began writing songs for the group, and his tunes won him a deal with a Nashville publishing house, though his move to Music City also forced Lawson to leave the band. After hearing Lawson sing on one of his publishing demos, an A&R man from MCA Records’ Nashville office became curious and after a showcase solo gig in Nashville, Lawson scored a major-label deal in 2001. His debut solo album, Chase the Sun, was released in the spring of the following year. He joined Muzik Mafia in 2004 and toured with the collective group of talented artists while continuing his songwriting.

Lawson currently plays locations across the country and plans on releasing his next album in 2011.

Goodbye on A Bad Day can be found on the Chase The Sun album.
