"Shine On" tells the story of Sancy Shaw and the tragic accident that took her life. Sancy was driving on Interstate 70 near Genesee on Christmas Eve when a drunk driver drifted, crossed the median and spun into them, investigators said. Her daughter Charlee was also in the car and suffered serious injuries. The newly released song also talks about how the mother of 4 lived her life to the fullest.
