Marking the first new music since BBR Music Group/Wheelhouse Records singer-songwriter Elvie Shane’s acclaimed Backslider album debut, Shane shares his new song ‘Forgotten Man‘, available to listen HERE.
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, co-written by the rising star with Dan Couch, Luke Preston, and Oscar Charles.
With his big-hearted Platinum Number One, ‘My Boy’, Shane showed fans the kind of man he is – one who’ll step forward and stand for what he believes in. He calls ‘Forgotten Man’ “the song I’ve been trying to write since I started all this,” and it finds him representing those hard-working, willing-to-sacrifice folks he’s met around the nation. But while that mission has been taken on many times before, it’s never been done quite like this.
“There’s been a lot of attempts to recognize that group of people in country music, but sometimes it feels like it’s not a very honest representation of the angst that’s involved,” Shane explains. “It doesn’t ever really touch on how p*ssed off you can be, just trying to find the American dream.”
“I’m wearing that patch, too,” he says. “I’m out here trying to give an honest account of who I am and put an honest effort into what I do. I actually do give a sh*t, and I will place my bet on those people I’m singing about in this song against all odds.”
