American Contemporary Christian music singer-songwriter and guitarist Shawn McDonald was born in Eugene, Oregon, the United States in 1978. His early life was very far from his contemporary status. He lived on the street, sold drugs for money, used too much alcohol and had problems with law. His friend Chris and his grandmother began inviting him in a church though he had never attended it before. After reading a Bible, he changed his life dramatically and got rid of all drugs. He began his music career in 2000 and a debut album Simply Nothing was released in 2004. In total, he has released five albums including two live ones. Shawn plays acoustic guitar and creates epic story-like songs. His last album Roots was released in 2008. You can download Shawn McDonald’s debut album in mp3 from our site.
