His industry peers in the Academy of Country Music recently voted him the Top Percussionist/Drummer of the year.

Shannon is also known for his popular sessions at the Modern Drummer Festival, demonstrating groove playing and what is required in the recording studio, as well as getting drum sounds, engineering, producing, and home studio concepts. The festival also gives him a chance to stretch out and play everything from Bluegrass to Modern Rock, a new direction he is looking at in his studio work.
