A huge thank you to the sponsors for hanging in there with us and making it happen this year.”
Shelburne kicked off 2020 with the release of the album’s first single,“Straight From Kentucky.” Shortly after the single was available, the live entertainment industry came to a screeching halt.

Shelburne has been a force in the music industry, with features from CMT, GAC, Newsmax, and NBC, and his busy tour schedule proves his fans always want more. He graced the cover of the 2020 Kentucky Tourism Visitor’s Guide which shares travel tips, stories, and regional highlights for tourists and visitors. With the easing of pandemic restrictions, the Kentucky native and new father is ready to hit the road. After building close bonds with fans through live interactions through virtual performances during quarantine, he is highly anticipating all of his 2021 tour dates. Shelburne has a lot in store for the upcoming months that country music fans will not want to miss!
“Straight From Kentucky was produced by Phil O’Donnell and features eleven songs total, four of which I co-wrote with some of Nashville’s most successful writers,” said Shelburne. “I honestly feel like this is my best collection of songs that I have recorded yet! I am stoked to get to see my fans again in person and to play these songs for them for the first time live!”
