Shane McAnally (born October 12, 1974 in Mineral Wells, Texas), is an American country music singer, songwriter and producer. He signed to Curb Records in 1999 and released a self-titled debut album the following year. This album produced three singles for him on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts, including the number 31 "Are Your Eyes Still Blue."
In 2012 he produced Kacey Musgraves' major label debut Same Trailer Different Park with Musgraves and fellow songwriter, Luke Laird. He co-wrote nine of the album's twelve tracks including the first three singles, "Merry Go 'Round", "Blowin' Smoke" and "Follow Your Arrow".
McAnally and music producer Rich Herring recorded a demo of a song that McAnally had written. The song, "Just One Touch", earned McAnally a publishing deal as well as a recording contract with Curb Records.
In 1999, McAnally signed with Curb Records and began recording his first album for the label as well as his first single.
