Shane LailKyle Cantrell in a posting on New Music on XM highlights the "Greater Storm" album of Asheville-based bluegrass band High Windy, whose members include Shane Lail.

Cantrell, of Nashville, is program director of XM Satellite Radio's Bluegrass Junction/Track 14.

The band's bio of Shane Lail aays:

Shane Lail was born in the foothills of Burke County, NC and raised in the mountains of Madison County, NC. He began playing guitar when he was 15 years old. Shane traveled and had a lot of good times in his first band The New Asheville Grass. This band went west to Grass Valley, CA and opened for the Tony Rice Unit. Later Shane joined Hazel Creek and focused on his singing skills. This group opened for such well-known bands as Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver, IIIrd Tyme Out, and Blueridge.

A highlight of Shane's musical career was joining Alison Krauss and Union Station on stage at East Tennessee State University. Shane enjoys spending time with his wife and children when not on the road. Music occupies most of his time, but when he is home in the mountains, he tries to make some time to search the hills for Native American artifacts.
