Elvie Shane shares brand new song “Forgotten Man” out now, March 31st, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the new track below.
A year and a half after his debut album, Backslider, Elvie Shane is back with more original music. Like everything that came before it, Shane’s new song “Forgotten Man” is an ode to his upbringing and his country-rock roots. The new single is the perfect addition to the hitmaker’s growing catalog.
Written by Shane with Dan Couch, Luke Preston, and Oscar Charles, “Forgotten Man” is the ultimate song for the hard-working people who do whatever it takes to make ends meet, while still standing up for what they believe in. According to the singer this song is “the song I’ve been trying to write since I started all this.” He also shared that the American dream is something that evokes a lot of feelings, adding, “I’m wearing that [Forgotten Man] patch, too. I’m out here trying to give an honest account of who I am and put an honest effort into what I do. I actually do give a sh*t, and I will place my bet on those people I’m singing about in this song against all odds.”
“I got a little white house with a flag in the front // Way that it is, is the way that it was // Dirt turns to mud here, steel turns to rust // The color of my neck’s still the same as my blood // Daddy spent his whole life working for a dollar // Name on his patch, more like a badge of honor // Sent me off to school, tried to turn me to a scholar // Can’t unpaint the blue on my collar”
Shane is a unique talent in country music right now. It will be exciting to see what this new era of music brings!
