Shane Everett and Shane Barnard formed the duo Shane & Shane after meeting in College Station, Texas in the late 1990s. Since then, the pair has logged countless hours on the road, garnered multiple Dove Awards, enjoyed numerous A-list tour slots, and sold millions of tracks. Now husbands and fathers, the two men have set their sights on a more ambitious project—The Worship Initiative.
As they were touring, they always made time to invest in the development of other musicians, worship leaders, and songwriters. They recognized a need for formal training and encouragement in this community, so they constructed a plan to mentor from afar, challenging others to consider their calling, consider their craft, and consider creating.
They started by gathering some of their favorite musicians to record 100 songs, shooting video tutorials of each instrument. Add to that some powerful worship devotionals and a 14-week songwriting class, and you have something groundbreaking. At the heart of it all is an unwavering commitment to God’s Word. In their own words:
Logos Bible Software has changed the way we study God’s Word. We are so grateful for their commitment to making the Word of God and resources surrounding it available to us and the church.
Shane & Shane is just the latest in a string of musicians to acknowledge they use Logos Bible Software in their songwriting process. As we’ve often said, serious Bible study demands serious Bible study software; and songwriting at a high level definitely demands serious Bible study.
