J.D. Shelburne

Not so many years ago, he was singing for tips at college bars in Louisville and Lexington Kentucky, focusing on graduating from the University of Kentucky, and meeting anyone he could to help advance his career. Now he is soaking up country music, touring cities and showing fans what JD Shelburne is all about. Today he’s among the most hard working and relevant country singers in the business. They say Nashville doesn’t work like this anymore – that talented strivers with no connections don’t stand a chance. But J.D. Shelburne proved that Music City’s engine still runs and that as a place for education, inspiration and validation, it has no parallel. Critics find him credible. Fans pack his shows. Venues strive to book him. There are very few new artists recording hits today about whom that can be said.

Shelburne’s kind of country has never been straight-up-the-middle. Instead, the Taylorsville, Kentucky -native grew up on a potent hybrid of honky-tonk, gospel, singer/songwriters, modern country and rock & roll, forging his own sound along the way.

JD has had enough recognition to land him in Country Weekly Magazine in 2009, numerous radio/television appearances, an appearance at the Grand Ole Opry with Steve Wariner, a USO Troop Tour at Camp Shelby in Mississippi, countless gigs that include KFC Yum Center!, The Wildhorse Saloon, CMA Music Festival in Nashville, Fourth Street Live, The Bluebird Café, Churchill Downs - Home of the Kentucky Derby and Louisville Slugger Field to name a few. JD Shelburne was also invited to be apart of the first ever HullabaLOU Music Festival at Churchill Downs with Bon Jov/ Kenny Chesney and many other national artists in July of 2010. JD Shelburne has also been highlighted at hundreds of award winning fairs and festivals all across the region.

JD Shelburne has also shared the stage with many national country acts. He has opened for Kellie Pickler, Aaron Tippin, Easton Corbin, Josh Kelley, Johnny Lee, Cowboy Troy, Mark Wills, Josh Gracin, Bryan White, Jeffrey Steele, Trent Tomlinson, Sam Bush, Gloriana, Colbie Caillat, The Kentucky Headhunters, Steve Wariner, Joey & Rory, The Harters, Adam Gregory, Daryl Worley, Crystal Shawanda, Jeremy McComb, David Frizzell, Joe Nichols (2007, 2009, 2009), John Michael Montgomery, Shannon Lawson, Halfway to Hazard and Juice Newton.
