J.D. Shelburne co wrote Straight from Kentucky, now an anthem at all University of Kentucky games. Listen to the inside story on this popular anthem. JD Shelburne is the best of both worlds. He rocks a crowd like nobody’s business, and
tears at your heartstrings with ballads that cut to the core of life and love.
Shelburne does both more than two hundred times a year in venues ranging from packed
clubs to huge festivals. Shelburne has opened for Miranda Lambert, Craig Morgan, Chris Young,
Marty Stuart, Jamey Johnson, and Montgomery Gentry. Including sharing the stage with 50
national acts, Shelburne has logged over 2,500 performances to date.
The approach is genuine and simple.
 “I give them ninety minutes of high energy,” Shelburne delivers, “but at one point I’ll
break it down with a couple of acoustic ballads, sit on a barstool and tell a story or two.”
 Those stories give listeners more insight into his musical beginnings in Taylorsville,
Kentucky, as all become aware of the dreams that took Shelburne from the family-farm, to small
home-town clubs, to Nashville, Tennessee.
It’s this relentless drive that is gaining Shelburne national attention that has been earned,
one audience, and one record at a time.
 Shelburne has appeared on CMT, which premiered videos for his single “One Less Girl.”
This single has earned thousands of online views, aired on dozens of country radio stations
nationwide, and appeared on Nashville’s prestigious Music Row Chart. Another single, “She
Keeps Me Up Nights,” topped charts on the CMT 12-pack Countdown. Shelburne has also
debuted as the #1 trending artist on CMT.com
