Shane McAnally is a multiple GRAMMY Award winning singer, songwriter, and record producer who has earned 26 No.1s to date. McAnally was named Songwriter of the Year by the Academy of Country Music in 2014 and Hot Country Songwriter of the Year by Billboard in 2015. McAnally co-produced Kacey Musgraves 2012 award-winning debut album, Same Trailer Different Park (including the GRAMMY Country Song of the Year “Merry Go ‘Round” and CMA Song of the Year “Follow Your Arrow”), and her 2015 follow-up Pageant Material. He’s also produced debut albums for Sam Hunt (Montevallo), Old Dominion (Meat and Candy), Midland, Walker Hayes and more. In 2016, McAnally arranged and produced “Forever Country,” a collaborative song featuring Luke Bryan, Faith Hill, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood and more to commemorate the CMA’s 50th anniversary celebration. “Forever Country” debuted at No.1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, making it the third song to debut at No.1 on the chart since the chart began in 1958. McAnally earned his 26th No.1 with “Body Like A Backroad,” written by Sam Hunt, McAnally and Josh Osborne. The single made history as the longest reigning No.1 on the Billboard Hot Country Song chart, spending 28+ atop the chart. Earlier this year, McAnally announced his co-presidency of Monument Records (with industry veteran, Jason Owen) in conjunction with Sony Records, adding label head to his impressive list of accomplishments.
