Guest: Christian artist Shawn McDonald
Verne and Tami from the WBFJ Morning Show will dig deep with Shawn McDonald this week on Sunday @ 5 on WBFJ.
BIO background: Shawn has been on an interesting journey. His life has been marked by a string of heartaches, bad breaks, and personal mistakes, events that have landed him both in trouble with the law and in love with the Lord – in that order.
Shawn grew up in Eugene, Oregon, an angry, rebellious teen who was a drug addict and a drug dealer always getting into trouble. Shawn accepted Christ at age 20. He got into the music business in 2004. Perfect life? Not really… After several painful years together, Shawn and his wife officially ended their marriage in April 2010.
McDonald says he and his wife both made mistakes from the start, and they never found unity they’d longed for. “I was too young when I got married. I had no clue what I was doing. My parents were never in my life, so marriage had never really been modeled for me. I had no idea how hard it was going to be.”
Shawn McDonald’s new project “CLOSER” comes out this Tuesday.
