CRS 2018 with Laura: T.G. Sheppard

by Laura Lou / 241 days ago / Comments

Having the opportunity to catch up with legends in country music is always a humbling experience for me and I think I tend to say all the time, "I can not believe I get to do this".  Another perfect example of that is talking with T.G. Sheppard during the Country Radio Seminar in Nashville this year.

First, I know I always say you have to watch the video, and I am saying it again here.  There is no way for me to properly express in words what Sheppard shares from his heart about so many things, mostly, the love of his life, Ms. Kelly Lang.

While Sheppard jokes that Lang calls him her "Uber driver", as you watch him talk about her and how he asks himself every morning "How did I get so lucky?", there is a tenderness in his heart that only talking about Lang can bring out.  It is definitely something to see.

Sheppard is currently working on a new album, with the help of Lang, and is making sure that he stays true to himself and what he wants to write and sing about.  He gave us a hint of a new song about Elvis that he admits is an emotional one for him about his good friend and mentor.  

The new album is expected to be available in July or August and I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy. We will be sure to share all the information with you on how to get your hands on a copy as well.

Make sure you keep up with Sheppard on all social media platforms and find out what is so very special about this artist.  His humble spirit and sense of humor along with fashion advice, are just a few of the many reasons this was absolutely one of my favorite interviews.

About Laura Lou

Laura Lou Journalist

Beginning about age 13, music always been my “safe place”, my “escape”, it became a part of who I am. My background includes being a photographer/journalist for newspapers, magazines and radio stations and more recently I have been an artist manager. What I continue to strive to learn is, what is important to the fans/readers? I find that the answer is always that they want to feel close to the artist they are supporting. The human contact that we all need is something that I want to deliver to anyone that happens to read something I write or see a photograph I shoot. It is important to me to provide that experience, because I am, after all, still always a “fan” and that giddy 13-year-old girl is simply amazed! I never imagined that my passion and love for music would lead me where I am today! I use the hashtag #iamtheluckiestgirliknow because I cannot believe how blessed I am! I’m excited to see “what happens next” and take you all along with me! This is going to be amazing…
