Shawn and his fellow musicians have performed at the Carolina Country Music Festival (CCMF), an annual event held in North Myrtle Beach. Shawn has been the opening act for very popular musicians, such as Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Thomas Rhett and many more. Shawn says that he has appeared at the festival for the last four years. The different bands are on stages all over the property and rotate to other stages throughout the event, usually performing twice a day. Shawn writes his own music and also collaborates with two other musicians with whom he has found success in the past. He recently released “This Dirt Road” and “Turn the Radio On”. Although he loves writing and performing his own songs, he still enjoys singing today's hits that belong to other musicians. He loves to see the crowd get energized and enjoy the show. “We have been really busy in the studio lately,” said Shawn. “ We just finished two more songs, and have a few more still in progress. I hope to get the next album out this fall, or early spring.” Shawn's next big music adventure will be in November. The owners of CCMF have organized an event called Carolina Country Music Cruise. Shawn was hired to perform on the cruise, which is from November 16-21. The cruise will go from Charleston to the Bahamas. Musicians such as Lee Brice, Cole Swindell, Chris Lane and many more are on the schedule to perform. “My dreams to become a country music performer are consistently growing with each new experience,” said Shawn. “These amazing people in this industry are the most down to earth friendly people ever, willing to listen and give advice. We are gearing up for the music cruise next month, and always looking forward to the CC Music Festival next year at North Myrtle Beach. We will also be performing at the Island Bar & Grill on August 16 in Pawley's Island, and at the Tin Roof on August 20 in Myrtle Beach. I would love to see familiar faces from Manning in the crowd.” For more information, please go towww.shawnbiltonmusic.com and www.reverbnation.com/shawnbilton.
