Shane & Shane is a Texas based, Christian band known for acoustic praise and worship music. The band consists of Shane Barnard (vocals, acoustic guitar) and Shane Everett (vocals, backing acoustic guitar).

Christianity began to play an active role in the life of Barnard when he was in ninth grade, when he began to attend a Bible church youth group. He began leading worship soon thereafter. During his junior year as a student at Texas A&M University, Barnard began a recording career.

Prior to joining Everett, Barnard teamed up with friend Caleb Carruth to release an album. Entitled “Salvation Still Remains,” it was released in limited numbers. Barnard and Carruth were rumored to have recorded the album in only two days due to the fact they had to pay for studio time themselves and wanted to make the most of it. Barnard and Carruth later agreed to end their partnership amicably, stating “they were just moving in different directions.”

Everett was born in Dallas, Texas and later moved to Rowlett, a nearby suburb. Everett also attended Texas A&M University. One night after playing with his band in a bar, Everett claims he experienced an encounter with God, which led him to quit his band and start attending church regularly. Shortly thereafter, he met Barnard, and became part of a weekly student-led praise and worship service at Texas A&M.

The band originally began with Barnard performing solo acts, but Everett increasingly played a major role in his performances. With the release of their 2003 album, entitled “Carry Away, “the band became officially known as Shane & Shane.

There 2004 album, “Clean,” reached #5 on Billboard's Christian Albums chart. In 2011 they released the album, “The One You Need,” via the Fair Trade Services label.
