Best Male Vocalist

Shawn Roland

Singer for Post Road, a local cover band that plays "today's Top 40 party country," Shawn Roland has a rich baritone that's well suited to singing tunes by the likes of Kenny Chesney, Luke Bryan, Eric Church and Jason Aldean. The Twinsburg-based group regularly performs songs by those country stars in its sets. On "That's My Road," a somber ballad about the beauty of living in the sticks that's the band's first original tune, Roland's husky vocals sound sharp as the song begins with little more than the sound of his deep voice.
