Based in Massachusetts, Shanna is an award winning singer-songwriter and powerhouse entertainer, who entered the country music scene back in 2009 and has been featured with many national recording artists since. Most known for her performances singing the National Anthem for local Boston sport teams and giving back to many charity and Military events, her style is centered in country, but with roots in rock, pop and soul. Shanna's first Nashville recorded EP in 2013, includes original songs that take a personal look into her life and experiences. Shanna’s latest single, Answer the Call, combines both her passions: music and her long career as a Public Safety Dispatcher.

Boston Bruins Hold National Anthem Auditions
August 8, 2018
"Rene is a legend," said candidate Shanna Jackman. "It's hard to imagine anyone could fill his shoes, but to be able to connect with Bruins fans just as much as he did would just be really an honor."
Jackman has worked as a 9-1-1 dispatcher for more than 14 years and has filled in for Rancourt in past seasons. The Douglas, MA native, who performed passionate renditions of the Canadian and American anthems at the tryouts Wednesday night, has also performed the anthem at Fenway, for Celtics games and at NASCAR's Sprint Cup in New Hampshire.
"There's a lot of excitement around being here and for the Bruins," said Jackman. "The Bruins take a lot of pride in the anthem, so it's exciting to just meet people and see friends here."

Boston's Country 102.5 "Catch of the Week"!
May 9, 2018
"Shanna Jackman packs a punch in a petite package. Her vocals are strong, her presence powerful and her passion off the charts. It seems she was born to perform. But performing is not enough for Shanna. Her love of this country and respect for our military has lead her to a life of service, as well. Working full time as a public safety dispatcher is still not enough. Jackman often donates her time volunteering, and performing our National Anthem at many Military events."

"We Can't Live in Fear"
Local Artists React to Vegas Shooting
October 3, 2017
Jackman, who grew up in Milford and Uxbridge, imagined what it would have been like if her niece, a concert-goer, were in the crowd. She also thought about the 911 dispatchers who received the first, frantic phone calls, and about the concert singer who had no control over the safety of his fans.
But the attack won’t stop her from performing. “We can’t live in fear,” Jackman said. She is scheduled to sing the national anthem before a Boston Bruins game later this month.

Shanna Jackman may be from the North but sings with the South in her boots!
February 6, 2016
"Shanna Jackman may have a bit of an accent from New England, but her singing voice is all Southern. Making a return to the Charlie Horse in West Bridgewater, Massachusetts was certainly a homecoming. The venue has an open stage where only a step separates artists from fans."

PAPPALARDO: Album Review - Shanna Jackman EP
September 27, 2013
The first thing that struck me when I was listening to Central Massachusetts native and 2010 Cat Country 98.1 WCTK Country Idol Shanna Jackman’s eponymous debut EP was her affection for Martina McBride, a point driven home as much by her vocal delivery as the sonic direction of her music. I was transported back to the Martina era, adn the guitar work from "this One's For the Girls."
