Elvie Shane finds salvation with ‘Baptized’

Country star shares personal visual for track co-starring his wife

BBR Music Group/Wheelhouse Records singer/songwriter Elvie Shane shares his new song “Baptized,” co-written by Shane with Dan Couch, Luke Preston, and Oscar Charles. Shane finds salvation in the here and now, feeling like a gritty blast of gospel pop which features a shadowy, electro-soul thump with an eclectic influence ranging from Steve Earle and The Who to Mac Miller. Shane also released a visual component to the track, co-starring his wife Mandi.

“Baptized” follows up Shane’s recently released track, “Forgotten Man.” An anthem for those chasing the American dream with calloused hands and a weary, but still-believing heart, it’s another example of Shane’s deep-feeling take on country, as a new blue-collar generation arrives.

Meanwhile, Shane is coming off a Best New Country Artist nomination at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, and will spend this spring and summer back on the road, with headline shows and appearances at CMA Fest, Country Fest and more, as well as joining select dates with The Cadillac Three.
