While the music ultimately decides whether an artist becomes successful or not, the package that an artist, particularly an indie one, presents for their album is sometimes even more important when their fans search the music aisles or iTunes. If they truly love music, they’re willing to take a chance on an ‘unknown’ artist. Shane Wyatt’s debut album “The Last Cowboy” not only contains good ole country music but it also features a simple but eye catching album cover.

Produced by Mike Noble, “The Last Cowboy” features eleven self-penned tracks that are stronger than many of the committee songs that are routinely turned out in Nashville. Fans of deep baritone vocalists like Jason Michael Carroll, Aaron Tippin and Tracy Byrd will dig Oklahoma-born, Minnesota-based Shane Wyatt’s voice. The album features what you’d expect in a modern country album with some steady ballads like “Fly Away,” and “Just Married” and up-tempo fare like “Whole Lotta Love” “The Big Bad Dog” (listen) and “Waiting For Forever” but if you dig into the album and give the songs more than a cursory listen, you’ll find that “Just Married” is a Jamey Johnson-like song filled with fiddle, steel guitar and a achingly sad story about a couple who were happy but, over the course of time have fell in and out of love but are too scared to break from the only thing they’ve known, even if the love they had at the beginning is no longer there. On the surface “Princess” is nothing but another in a long-line of songs about a girl gone away but instead, the princess Shane’s singing about is the beautiful glass of whiskey that never gives him pain. It’s an interesting twist to the ole drink my life away song as he sings about a guy who ‘finally found one who won’t leave him.’

“She Could Do Better” is the kind of song that twists a man’s words to make an interesting story song about a woman who is with a man she loves despite there being many men (including the narrator) who would treat her better. “Happy Hour” too twists traditional thoughts about what happy hour means and rather than cry his beer, Wyatt sings “it’s my happy hour, I don’t waste it on you.” With a strong set of songs, fans of good, honest country music (nothing on here would be considered pop), the kind recorded by Jamey Johnson and artists in Texas like Jason Boland. If you like your country music country then you should really check out “The Last Cowboy" as it truly is an album worth paying your hard-earned dollars on. - www.roughstock.com


My friends I have got to tell you that I am in love. I recently got my hands on the latest album from Shane Wyatt called “The Last Cowboy”. I was instantly hooked at track one “Waiting For Forever”, and through to the, last track, “The Big Bad Dog”.

One of the biggest questions I get these days is “when did country music stop being country?” A lot of people feel a deep void that they are longing to fill with the country music that they used to know and still love. Shane Wyatt fills that void with his original style, Shane somehow combines who he is along with sounds of Tracy Byrd, Dwight Yokam, and George Strait to make his own original sound.

Shane wrote every song on the album by himself which is another thing I love about this album. It is consistent all the way through. If you haven’t picked up “The Last Cowboy”, I strongly urge you to do so. Shane Wyatt is the one of the best new artists that I have heard in a long time. He is a true talent in every sense. I am keeping my eye on Wyatt, because in my opinion Shane Wyatt is here to stay. Thank you Shane for producing such a great album! - Got Country


Rising Country singer/songwriter Shane Wyatt is now being sponsored by Farm Boy and Farm Girl brands. Wyatt had a rural upbringing and has a down-home musical style, so the sponsorships seems to be a good fit for both.

“We’re very excited to partner with Shane Wyatt and look forward to joining in the fun as he travels the country this year. As a former 4-H member and an FFA officer in his hometown in Oklahoma, Shane is a natural fit to represent Farm Boy & Farm Girl brands. Shane’s raised cattle and raised horses and his infectious energy on stage raises the roof with audiences too,” said Dan Adamson, Partner and Creative Director of Farm Boy and Farm Girl brands.

Farm Boy & Farm Girl brands is supporting Wyatt’s ongoing radio tour promoting his debut release, The Last Cowboy. Farm Boy and Farm Girl brands are also providing clothing and accessories for listener giveaways and other special events during the tour.

Wyatt said, “My whole team and I are excited about the partnership. The Farm Boy & Farm Girl brands perfectly embody the country and small town spirit that I strive to convey in my music and in my shows. These clothes are the coolest way to show that you love the farming lifestyle, agriculture, and the country way of life, and I am proud to bring them out on our radio tour and show tour this year.” - www.musicrow.com


Nashville singer/songwriter country from Shane Wyatt will give any country-music fan an experience they'll never forget. Nothing short of a sensual hick experience, The Last Cowboy leads listeners on an adventure through the depths of Wyatt: exploring what it is that makes a "real cowboy". Love, it seems, is essential.

But real cowboys have problems expressing their love. And Wyatt may be failing, writing an entire album of love songs about drinking. A stripped down Garth Brooks comes to mind when listening to this. Cowboy indeed.

Discography

Robert K. Oermann of Music Row magazine reviewed Shane’s first single, “The Big Bad Dog,” and declared Shane “the most commercial and creative songwriter of the bunch.” Early radio success was fueled further when world renowned choreographer Jamie Marshall created a custom line dance for the song.

Between stage shows, Shane promoted his singles via a whirlwind media tour. In 2009 alone, Shane visited over 80 radio and television stations across the South and throughout the Midwest giving on air interviews and live performances.

Shane’s second single, “Whole Lotta Love,” received an even better welcome; it was added to playlists on over 200 radio stations and spent several weeks on the Music Row Breakout chart, an impressive feat for any independent artist on their debut album.

Word of Shane’s soulful songwriting and rich, baritone voice has continued to spread throughout the industry. Shane recently relocated to Nashville to pursue the next stage in his music career.

Bio

A NEW BREED OF COUNTRY MUSIC ENTERTAINER

The star of this show is Shane’s booming, powerful voice. His voice has drawn comparisons to his childhood heroes Randy Travis and Keith Whitley and newer artists Trace Atkins and Josh Turner. But the similarities with these artists end at the microphone.

Shane’s live performances are fueled by 100% high octane energy as Shane and his band prowl the stage and whip the crowd to frenzy. He puts his heart and soul into every performance, because for Shane, every performance was years in the making.

Shane started his musical career as a teenage fiddle playing sensation in southern Oklahoma. Playing Charlie Daniels tunes in honky tonks across his home state whetted his appetite for high energy shows. He quickly added guitar and mandolin to his arsenal and studied the live shows of any artist that he considered a true crowd pleaser. In particular, it was the high flying stage antics of Hank Williams, Jr., Garth Brooks and Chris LeDoux that fostered his love for a big stage show that can be seen in every Shane Wyatt performance today.

Shane’s band of first class musicians is an extension of his raw Southern country attitude. They command the stage with stunning musical ability and showmanship, and dazzle crowds with a rock solid sound perfected over years of playing in hundreds of shows across the Midwest.

While the crowd favorites are still his turbo charged versions of Charlie Daniels, Johnny Cash and Chris LeDoux numbers (and his own boot kickin’ trucker anthem “The Big Bad Dog”), Shane still finds time in his show to bring down the music and get intimate with his audience, paying tribute to his classic
country roots with his own heart-felt ballads, and an occasional homage to smooth vocalist like Keith Whitley and George Strait.
