Difference Media recording artist Canton Junction announces the addition of celebrated vocalist Shane McConnell to its acclaimed lineup. Shane joins Matthew Hagee, Aaron Crabb and Tim Duncan, to round out the popular quartet. He replaces Michael Sykes as baritone.
Matthew Hagee issues this statement: “Shane is a remarkably talented and incredibly gracious individual, who greatly complements the idea that Canton Junction is where good things come together. We are extremely blessed to have him and look forward to what the future holds for Canton Junction.”
Shane has been a Nashville studio vocalist since 1998 and has performed on recordings by Garth Brooks, Wynonna, Kenny Rogers, Steve Green, Sandi Patty, Andy Griffith and Bill Gaither, among countless others. In addition, his voice has been heard on recordings for Walt Disney World and SeaWorld. Since 2006 he has been part of the Gaither Homecoming family, performing on Homecoming videos, live events and studio projects.
He said, "I’ve enjoyed all the opportunities I’ve had in the studio through the years, but now as a member of Canton Junction, I’m especially looking forward to being able to interact with live audiences. I’ve always loved quartet harmonies, but I also have a heart for praise & worship, so Canton Junction seems like a great home for me. I believe it’s going to be a fun journey!"
Canton Juncion is based at Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas. Their initial album was very well done and received, so I look forward to seeing great things with this lineup in the future!
