SHAWN BYRNE

Shawn Byrne moved to Nashville in 2003 and began washing dishes at the Bluebird Cafe. He was surrounded nightly by some of the best writers in the industry and these connections eventually led to his first major cut. His song "Ol' Cook Pot" was recorded by Americana band The Duhks on their Grammy nominated album Migrations and earned Shawn a SESAC writers award. Since that first cut, Shawn has gone on to have songs recorded by artists from Nashville to Australia.

 

He has also earned the reputation of being one of the go-to guitar players in town, touring in the past with acts such as Rodney Atkins, Ashton Shepherd, Kelleigh Bannen, and Mark Collie. It was while on tour with Rodney Atkins that Shawn met the woman that would later become his wife at the Alabama National Fair.
