In 2007, Shawnee and the actress Missi Pyle, formed the country rock duo Smith & Pyle; they met while filming a pilot episode for the ABC sitcom “Travelling in Packs”. The duo released their debut album entitled “It’s OK to Be Happy” in July 2008, produced by Chris Goss. Shawnee and Missi soon founded their own record label, called Urban Prairie Records, but disbanded in 2011, Shawnee stating that the reason was her desire to focus on motherhood and acting work.

In 2019, she provided vocals for Eagles of Death Metal’s cover of Steve Miller Band’s song “Abracadabra”.
