Win Shane & Shane’s New Album “The One You Need” Before You Can Buy It

I have some great give-aways today.  Today’s BIG give-aways include some cool stuff from some friends of mine, christian artists Shane and Shane. If you are not aware of their music, you should be, these guys are the real deal.  We recently hung out and I just love these guys genuine hearts and passion to share their gospel and impact the community.

Shane and Shane has sold over a half a million records and now they have a new project which is their first studio release in two years, The One You Need. Available Oct. 4, the project’s debut single and title track is quickly becoming a hit.  As a matter of fact just yesterday, on my way to an client appointment, I had to sit in the car and finish listening to “The One You Need” before on The Message satellite radio station before going into the meeting.

After a brief hiatus from recording, Shane Barnard and Shane Everett have returned to the studio with two years worth of new material, all self-written and self-produced. The duo, who has been playing together for 13 years, has joined efforts with Fair Trade Services, home to top artists including The Afters, MercyMe, and Derek Webb, for this new album.

The Shanes, now both married with children, created this latest record through the lens of fatherhood and community. In fact, Barnard penned the title track—a poignant letter from daddy to daughter—a week before his daughter Lucy was born. Having also recently assumed the role of worship pastors at their local church, The One You Need additionally contains songs intended to minister to those hurting around them.

Although it doesn’t release until October 4th, I already have the new album in my iTunes (I got the hook up… keep reading, you can also get the hook up).  It’s an awesome project that really compliments the Shane’s unique style and unique sound.  Some of my personal favorites include: Grace Is Sufficient, Your Love, Praise Him, Miracle and the title track “The One You Need” which is featured in the above video.  As a parent it will break your heart and make you re-focus at the same time.

Do You Want The Hook Up? We are giving away 4 different prize packages, click here to check out what is included in Package A, B, C & D.  Package A includes everything from a signed copy of the alum to 2 FREE tickets to any ticketed Shane and Shane show and more.

    • What would you doooo, for a new cd of shane and shane? (sing to Klondike bar song) I would jump up and down a couple times. I would hug the nearest bunny rabbit. I would show appreciation to them for their creativity and their apparent love for the gospel in their songs. I might even jump off of a bridge if it was a small one that led into the same kind of water that little john in men in tights jumped in. I don’t know. I listen to their last cd “everything is different” all the time. I love the powerful lyrics.

  • YES! The shanes are my heroes, I patterned my worship after them, gungor, and John Mark McMillan. If I had a choice, I would like Option A, simply because I want the “organic acoustic” version of the album. I love their acoustic versions, sometimes I feel those are better than the originals.

  • Dearest Scott and his blog,

    I shall alas admit to the fact, and indeed resign to it, that this winning is solely determined upon random chance, and luck of the draw. However, this does not, nonetheless, deter my declarations that winning this Shane & Shane CD would be positively delightful if it were to happen to myself. I shall, therefore, state all the more excitedly and with full joy that if I were to be chosen, I would be quite delighted and forthcoming with shouts of adulation. I, once again, have submitted yet another post, and shall send virtual bird songs through the twittersphere of your musical drawing.

    Sincerely, Andrea

  • Victor Cifuentes

  • Physio

    Have tweeted. so excited for tonight!

  • Did the last tweet for the contest, can’t wait to see who the lucky winners are. They’re gonna be blessed!

  • I “yearn” to win this CD. It would be “the answer” to making all my “bad days better” as I work away in this “barren land” of cubicles. I “beg” that I win Package A because “I want it all”.

    “This is who I am”,

  • I did it again, I am super excited for this.

  • “This is my last entry
    to win the CD.
    I would be really excited
    if Mr. Williams picked me!”

    Steve 🙂

  • Stephen

    Pray for me – I’m not on Facebook, Twitter or Google+.

    But…I do love me some Shane & Shane. I’ve been a huge fan of Shane & Shane since before they were Shane & Shane. Anybody ever heard of the band “Turning Circles”…or how ’bout “Shane & Caleb?” If there is any doubt about how much I love Shane and Shane…I even named my son “Everett” (after Mr. Shane Everett of course). I REALLY want to win this! Pick me please!

    • Yes, I have heard of both. However, I doubt I would name my child after them. That is the epitome of fandom. you beat me.

  • I love me some Shane & Shane! Pick me!

  • Joshua Simpson

    It may sound simple, but I have always loved Shane and Shane as well as the new song “the one you need” is the most perfect song for my feelings toward my daughter who just turned 4. Its simple, I love you this much but I understand I will fail you but Jesus will never fail you.

  • Dearly Beloved,

    We are gathered here today to behold which of these fine commenters shall be bestowed a copy of the new Shane & Shane CD. (of which I hope to be chosen!) Everyone who wishes to win a cd, speak now or forever hold your peace.


    May peace follow you all the days of your life, and may you dwell in the house of the LORD forever. Amen.

    I will re-post asap – I really hope it’s not too late to be entered. I cannot have enough of them to worship along with, in my car with my kids.

    Hey Shane & Shane…
    I thought you might be interested in knowing how one of your shows changed the trajectory of my life.
    In the Spring of ’09, Austin, TX.- I saw an FB ad for a free Shane & Bethany D.concert that took place in a school, hosted by Ecclesia Austin, I believe. My husband & I went & sung along to many familiar songs. I cried at many of them but esp. when I heard “Turn down the music”, & then again when they played a promo video @ intermission for Stop Child Trafficking Now. I had no idea this was happening in the US.

    I went home, researched it more online, watched ‘Taken’ & ‘Human Trafficking’, and then was invited to an SCTNow ‘More than a Tea Party’, where I met, with a hundred other ladies, the founder, Ms. Lynette Lewis and heard some terrible stories of US – and Austin cases. At that point, I knew to much to do nothing. God had been preparing my heart for years for this very cause, seeping in me…sowing in me the knowledge of his potential given to every little girl and boy. This potential, among many other sacred attributes, has been stolen from millions of children, US & abroad. I shake my head in disbelief and frustration that selfish addiction and the love of money could drive humans to this low – could drive them to steal a child’s God-given destiny & enslave them in sexual servitude. At the Tea Party, I signed up for my first “Stop Child Trafficking Now” Walk in Austin & walked that 5k with 600 others in the fall of ’09…quite an empowering & impacting event for me.

    Spring of ’10 came around & my family of 4 was looking at the possibility of moving back up to Oregon where I’d lived & loved for 30 years. I looked up Portland SCTNow on Facebook and saw the admin’s contact info, called her and asked her about getting involved in Portland’s chapter…maybe even in a leadership position. She was so excited, as she said “that would be perfect. I am moving up to Seattle soon and have no one to take my place yet as Portland Ambassador”. The only kind of leader I’d been before was a cheerleader (and “mommy”), and with great intimidation, and the fear of God that had risen in me, I applied for the volunteer Portland position.

    My husband had no solid business leads as a web designer & I hadn’t heard back from SCTNow, when we sold everything of ours that couldn’t fit into or on top of our Scion XB toaster of car, and we moved from our 2k sqr-ft home in Austin to Portland in June ’10. Stayed with my parents, & then an apartment, replying on God alone to provide finances & wisdom to plan & organize 2010’s main fund raiser, The SCTNow Portland Walk.


    It was the toughest adventure, and the most rewarding job I’ve ever taken on. But 526 people decided to join me that day and together we raised $19,660 that went toward programs & missions that lower the demand for child trafficking.

    The predators here in the US – the #1 destination for trafficked children- that are looking for our most vulnerable kids to exploit and rape – their days are numbered. As SCTNow has officially partnered with Homeland Security and with Facebook, we are not just tracking hundreds of new predators every month in high-risk cities, but pulling down new facebook profiles every day – profiles that were created to network & grow their child sex rings.

    We’re now getting ready for the 2011 Walk/Run – telling everyone we can to register for free…and to raise at least $100 for this crucial cause that is taking the target off the backs of little ones. I’m more pumped than ever about it – when I think about this year’s event being at Oaks Park, the incentive prizes, live music, Whole Foods fruit, PopChips, guest speakers & a beautiful trail course that parallels the majestic Willamette River & the natural habitats of Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge!!

    Here is the Portland Reg. link with all the details:

    In short, I knew that God had a calling on my life, but didn’t realize that it would be an ever growing burden – one that is in fact, light with supernatural vision and PROvision from my God almighty – the one true God of Justice.

    Thank you for staying true to your calling as musicians & worshipers & creative artist-leaders of the body of Christ. Your talent inspires me, as a singer myself. Your message of truth, grace and justice overflows on all your audience, infecting some – choice few- with a passion for God they’ve never experienced before and never want to shake! May this continue to happen with every show, and I pray that He blesses you immensely in all you do for His glory, Shane & Shane. “
