Shane not only had the opportunity of promoting numerous #1 songs for his artists but also helped develop many new artists.
Around 2000 Shane began to come out from behind the scenes to front and center on stage. What began as just a fill in singer when needed for a few groups (Divine Purpose, The Joyaires, Kyla Rowland & Deliverance, The Rowlands). Shane began to craft his vocal talent and use it more for the Lord. In 2004, Shane along with his Brother In Law, Tony McGee, formed the Southern Gospel Trio Tony McGee & New Covenant. Before the group disbanded in 2010 they enjoyed several top 40 songs.
In November 2013 Shane began singing and traveling with Evidence Ministries from out of Columbus, Oh. Mike Blanton & Evidence is a full time ministry that consists of Evangelist Mike Blanton, his wife Teresa and Shane. Shane says "This ministry is something totally different for me. It's not just going to different venues to sing. We are involved in numerous campmeetings, revivals, and crusades around the country. We sing and Mike preaches. I am so glad God has placed me in a ministry like this that has such a heart for the lost." Mike Blanton & Evidence averages around 350 services a year.
