JD Shelburne Joins Lewis Capaldi and Billie Eilish
Nashville based country music artist JD Shelburne was raised on a tobacco farm in Taylorsville, Kentucky, just outside of Louisville. JD was 19, when he found a guitar after the death of his grandmother. With a natural talent he quickly learned how to play it, and began writing and singing songs on his own. By his sophomore year of college, JD had found a few gigs at some local bars in Louisville & Lexington, Kentucky area venues, developing a large base of fans along the way.
Fast forward to today, JD’s latest album "Two Lane Town" is fast becoming a key building block upon his blossoming career as a modern country singer, songwriter and performer. His debut single and video for “One Less Girl” world premiered on CMT in 2018, and then went on to become a Top 30 Music Row charted song at country radio. CMT again world premiered his second song and video for “She Keeps Me Up Nights” in April of 2019, which peaked at #3 of their 12 Pack countdown series. JD is wrapping up a busy 2019 with more than 200 shows performed and a new album on the way in 2020.
JD gave featured performances at Hometown Rising Music Festival, CMA Music Festival, NASCAR's Quaker State 400, Kentucky Bourbon Festival, 50th Annual Street Rod Nationals at Freedom Hall, World Chicken Festival, and Somerset's Moonlight Festival. The CMT Music world premiere of his song "She Keeps Me Up Nights" reached #3 on the CMT 12-Pack Countdown.
The Nashville-based singer continues currently in the studio working on new music with famed songwriters Mark Nesler, Carson Chamberlain, Phil O’Donnell and Marty Dodson. Much like he did in 2018, JD will release the new album in the summer of 2020 with another FREE show for his fans in his hometown of Taylorsville, Ky.
"Looking into 2020, I can't wait for the release of my new album, and to share more music with my fans," said Shelburne. "Each year, I continue to build upon my loyal fan base, meeting them in person and performing in cities that I have never been to before. The momentum for next year is already being built, yet I still have many goals to reach and new ground to cover. I anticipate 2020 to be the biggest year of my career yet, and would like to thank everyone around me who has supported my career to this point!"
JD Shelburne was also recently announced as a "Fan Favorite" by Bandsintown’s Year in Review: 2019 High Notes. The top global concert discovery platform shared the news to their over 50 million live music fan registered platform that Shelburne took the top spot for most shows played throughout the year.
