Shawn McDonald's 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. The street-tough but tenderhearted McDonald has never shied away from telling his story - of growing up in Eugene, Oregon, as an angry, rebellious teen who was a drug addict and a dealer, looking for any and every way to escape his pain and a dysfunctional home. His honesty continues on his newest album Closer, released in 2011. Most of the songs were written by McDonald, but he shares several writing credits with Brandon Heath, Joy Williams, Ben Glover, and Josh Garrels. His hope for the record is that it “can be a redemption story for people, that God can use it to speak and bring hope. Because that's what He's done for me."
