We are very excited to welcome Texas music legend Shake Russell back to our home. Shake has been entertaining audiences for many years with his unique, Americana style of folk-rock. His repertoire consists of a blend of love songs, ballads, and waltzes, skillfully balanced with lively rockabilly tunes and soulful rhythm and blues pieces. His lyrics are imbued with beautiful imagery, catchy phrases, and inventive similes and metaphors. But it is the rich, melodious voice of Shake Russell that breathes life and spirit into the lyrics. A prolific songwriter, Shake has written or co-written hundreds of melodies. His songs and albums have frequented the Billboard charts, with many, including “Deep in the West,” “You’ve Got a Lover,” “Put Yourself in My Shoes,” “One More Payment,” and “Our Kind of Love” being recorded by such distinguished artists as Waylon Jennings, Jessi Colter, Ricky Skaggs, Clint Black, and Carolyn Dawn Johnson. Shake is a two-time recipient of the BMI “Million Air” award for Clint Black’s recordings of “Put Yourself in My Shoes” and “One More Payment,” both of which he co-wrote with Clint, and a four-time recipient of the BMI Writer’s Award. In 2004, 2008, and 2011, The Texas Music Association named Shake the Texas Music Awards Entertainer of the Year and in 2007 nominated his new song, “Cowboy Coffee,” for the Texas Music Awards Best New Song. In 2013 he was awarded the Texas Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award.
