Thursday, November 7, 2019, 7:30 PM


In releasing his latest album, Two Lane Town, JD Shelburne feels he has recorded the album that could take him to a whole new level. Ive been working really hard on this album. I think it is my best collection of songs that Ive released thus far, he says of his fourth project. He says that hes definitely learned a lot since he released his first disc that was self-titled, back in 2012.Its all about writing and recording great songs, he says. It all boils down to just a great lyric. I try to write/record songs that I can relate to, ones that are catchy and have a great melody that I feel my fans can relate.Of the tracks from the new album, JD says theres one in particular that has a special place in his heart. I co-wrote a song on the record called Born For This. Its the first song on the record, and it talks about picking up guitar and adapting to a new venture in life while attending college and just running with it I was nineteen, when my grandmother passed away. My life turned around in an instant when I found that guitar after her death. I didnt realize until early in college that music was my true passion in life. I had played three different sports growing up, and just led the simple small-town life. I picked up the guitar, and my life hasnt been the same since. Its kind of the title track of my life. When I was about to finish college, there was a point when I realized I was about to be an adult and wondered what I was going to do with my life. Where I was going to go? I honestly felt like I was born to play music and entertain people. It was just something that I gravitated towards naturally. Nashville, Tennessee was my next destination and I havent looked back since.J.D. began that gravitation while growing up on a tobacco farm in Taylorsville, KY, a tiny town southeast of the Ohio River near Louisville KY. At age 19, he found a guitar after the death of his grandmother and began learning to play and sing on his own. By his sophomore year of college, he had found a few gigs at some local bars in the Louisville/Lexington, KY area and developed a fan-base that eventually landed him on some of the biggest stages in the business, opening for some of the nations hottest stars. Eventually, Shelburne was adding original songs into the set mix, in addition to producing songs of his own material.In 2002, Kentucky fell in love at first sight with Shelburne, then college student and small-town kid 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 hes among the most hard working and relevant country singers in the business. They say Nashville doesnt work that way anymore that talented musicians with very few connections dont stand a chance. But Shelburne proved that Music Citys 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.During his whirlwind career explosion, he has performed with over 50 national acts ranging from stars such as Montgomery Gentry, Craig Morgan, Jamey Johnson, Kellie Pickler, Steve Wariner to Clay Walker and Johnny Lee, performed at some of the regions most famous venues such as the Historic Ryman Auditorium, Rupp Arena, Murphy Center, KFC Yum Center, Freedom Hall, Churchill Downs and Old Cardinal Stadium which recently drew the Kentucky State Fairs largest crowd of the concert series. Shelburne performed God Bless America prior to the 2016 Quaker State 400 NASCAR race at Kentucky Speedway to over 100,000 attendees. In September 2017, Shelburne made his NBC Network Television Debut
