Shane & Shane Have Changed My Life

About 15 years ago I was on a mission trip to Peru when I was first introduced to the music of Shane Barnard and Shane Everette. I don't always have the best memory but I can specifically remember hearing one of their songs and instantly being hooked. The combo of guitar style and vocals they were doing at the time were not like anything else I had heard anyone else do before. In fact, fast forward to present day and it's still the same thing. There just isn't anyone who sounds like they do. In my opinion, they are EASILY two of the most talented vocalists in human history and, IF they wanted to, could have gone for fame and fortune in the secular music industry and made it big. They are that gifted. BUT, they instead choose to remain simple and humble. They don't dress in rockstar clothing or go out partying. Most of their concerts take place in smaller venues. And as enormously talented as they are, when you see them live you never once feel like they are performing for their own fame or self glory. And at every show they usually ask the audience to stay seated. Who does that??

Anyway if you think a lot of Christian music sounds weird, well.....you're right. A lot of it does. BUT...I hope that you will give these guys a fair shot and listen to a few of these songs. And I also hope that their music will do as much for your life as it has for mine. I mean that whole heartedly.

Shane & Shane - All The Poor And Powerless

Can't say enough about what the music of Shane Barnard and Shane Everette has done for me over the years. Two of the most talented but also humble guys around. With so much of the world these days being about self glory, they have always strived to put God first in all of their success.

Shane & Shane - Though You Slay Me

To anyone out there who may be currently enduring pain or some sort of hardship, this song/video by Shane Barnard and Shane Everette has always helped me get through difficult times and so I thought I would share it with you.

I know I can never hear it enough.

Though You slay me
Yet I will praise You
Though You take from me
I will bless Your name
Though You ruin me
Still I will worship
Sing a song to the One who's all I need

Happy Father's Day | Shane & Shane - The One You Need

Happy Father's Day to any other dads out there that follow me. Just wanted to share a song by two of my favorite musician/singers Shane Barnard and Shane Everette that gets me choked up every time I listen to it.

Being a dad of two daughters myself, it reminds me that no matter how hard I try to be their number 1 hero by teaching them to brush their teeth, ride their bikes and one day drive a car, the most important thing I can teach them about is Jesus. The Hero of heroes.

Enjoy.

Hey, hey sweet daughter
I’m so proud to be your father 
Each day is like a gift from God 
Hey, hey sweet daughter 
There’s no music like your laughter 
And your smile is like the rising sun 
You know I’ve loved you from the start 
So come in close, take my hand 
While Daddy shares his heart 

I wish that I could be your everything
Be the one to give you all the things you need 
Sometimes I’m gonna let you down 
There’s Someone if you just believe
He’ll be your hero like He’s always been for me 
Darling, Jesus is the one you need 

No matter what you walk through He will always love you
Just the way you are
For there's nothing in this world 
That I want for my baby girl 
Than to be happy ever after 
The story of your life is still untold 
I pray the King of all the universe 
Would make your heart His home

I wish that I could be your everything
Be the one to give you all the things you need 
Sometimes I’m gonna let you down 
There’s Someone if you just believe
He’ll be your hero like He’s always been for me 
Darling, Jesus is the one 
Who will never leave
He’s been there all along
Oh, when you’re ready you can find true love

It's Not With My Eyes That I Can See

All I know is that I believe it's not with my eyes that I can see. I'm a blind man fighting the world swinging back at me.

I hope this song finds you well.

I don't know which way to go
But my eyes are on You
I don't know which way to turn
But my ears are to the ground
You say that I can hear Your voice
So I am listening

All I know is that I believe
It's not with my eyes that I can see
I'm a blind man fighting the world
Swinging back at me
There's a vision now in another eye
You've given sight to a man inside;
Of a blind man fighting the world
Swinging back at me

I still don't know which way to go
But my eyes are on You
I still don't know which way to turn
But my ears are to the ground
As long as You are lifted up
I don't have to understand

All I know is that I believe
It's not with my eyes that I can see
I'm a blind man fighting the world
Swinging back at me
There's a vision now in another eye
You've given sight to a man inside;
Of a blind man fighting the world
Swinging back at me

The battle is the Lord's
So I'll walk towards You in the dark
Cause I know that in the end we win
So I'm all in
Lead me I'm Yours
