CMA Fest Artist Spotlight: J.D. Shelburne

by Missy Wolf / 410 days ago / Comments

From Kentucky to Nashville, CMA Fest Artist Spotlight feature J.D. Shelburne continues to turn heads and gain fans everywhere he goes. This recently engaged artist seems to know exactly what it takes to be successful with his music career. Managing himself and working hard has proven to pay off. 

At 3rd and Lindsley, we were able to catch Shelburne at a benefit hosted by Clay Walker for an on-camera interview to catch up on all he has been up to since our last conversation. Watch now to here this talented artist share that and more. 

Here is a sneak peek of his bio directly from his website.

"In 2002, Kentucky fell in love at first sight with Shelburne, then college student/ small-town country boy with a wide smile, natural singing voice and a love of faith, family and his hometown of Taylorsville, KY. But that small-town image is merely a fond memory now that he has moved on to Nashville down the path to music stardom.

 Now find him soaking up the music scene, touring cities, building a fan-base and celebrating a decade of success playing venues all across the southeast trying to get his big break. Today he’s among the most hard working and relevant country singers in the business. They say Nashville doesn’t work that way anymore – that talented musicians with very few connections don’t stand a chance. But J.D. Shelburne proved that Music City’s engine still runs off of talent and persistent driven antics. Critics find him credible. Fans pack his shows. Venues strive to book him. There are very few new artists recording songs today about whom that can be said."

For more on Shelburne, please follow him on social media, download his latest album release Farmtown, share him with your friends and make sure to send him a shout out. Tell him I sent you. Until next time...Missy

About Missy Wolf

Missy Wolf Co-Founder, Editor, Journalist

From an early age I knew music and entertainment were in my blood. I have always been enamored with the idea of being in this industry, though I never wanted to be a front and center "Star". Taking the audience behind the scenes for up close conversations with the artists they love is where I want to be. Life in lyrics has always been my style, so as my favorite country artist Wade Hayes sings, I am living my life and chasing my dreams! Conducting interviews, meeting talented people and sharing stories and adventure are my passion. My new favorite hashtag is #iaskyouanswer, so stay tuned for more interviews, articles and adventures!
