Shane is the type of artist that is so creative and versatile; on a recent radio interview the jock opened the mic to let listeners call-in, and one caller says; hey Shane I really love your band’s music; who does the writing for the band? and Shane replied, well let see why don’t You and I write something right here and now, on the spot; the caller says I’m not a writer, I just love what you guys do, so, Shane says, give me 3 to 4 words, lets see what we can do together… you wouldn’t believe the song they came up with on the air, on the spot; the radio stations phones lit up and people were calling in to the radio station like crazy…the jock loved it!
