Shotgun was The Octaves' second consecutive hit, a fact proven by its 3 CARA nominations, including Best Male Collegiate Album and the runner-up for Best Male Collegiate Arrangement (Ben Mertz for "Come Clean"). Shotgun features "Lonely No More," which was nominated for Best Male Collegiate Song and selected for the 2007 Best of College A Cappella compilation (BOCA). The eighth album from the group out of the University of Richmond, Shotgun covers a wide array of music, including songs from Guster, Jamie Cullum, and The Killers. Highlights include Coldplay's "Fix You," Hilary Duff's "Come Clean," and Gavin DeGraw's "Chariot." Once again incorporating collaborations with a cappella experts James Gammon and Dave Sperandio, Shotgun is a more-than-worthy successor to The Oct?ves' previous hit, Corner Pocket, and it shows the guys continuing to push the envelope in a cappella music.
