This caught the attention of the award winning Las Vegas show, “Legends in Concert” where for many years he starred as ‘Elvis’ in their Myrtle Beach, Las Vegas, Branson and Atlantic City show rooms. Each January, he stars in the Elvis Birthday Tribute Tour, an extravaganza with Elvis’ own musicians, singers, and friends, in major venues in multiple cities.

Shawn was then named the 'World’s Greatest Elvis' by 6.5 million international viewers on BBC1 Television in the United Kingdom. Finally, on August 16, on the 30th anniversary of Elvis’ passing, Shawn was named the First Ever Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist by Elvis Presley Enterprises in Memphis.
