NASHVILLE, TN (July 16, 2023):
Country riser and one of Nashville’s best kept secrets JD Shelburn is bringing his classic croon to a cultural classic with the help of country royalty. Today the Kentucky native teams up with The Oak Ridge Boys for their power take on Amazing Grace.
While the iconic song may scare some away, JD takes on the song with ease and conviction. The seamless marriage of JD’s tone and the recognizable grit and baritone that Oak Ridge Boys provide, make this song a spot on rendition and less a cover.
“I am thrilled to release my gospel cover of ‘Amazing Grace’ with special guests, The Oak Ridge Boys! It’s been the opportunity of a lifetime to spend time in the studio recording with The Oaks,” JD told All Country News. “I never dreamed I would get the chance to sing with country music royalty… For many years, my fans have asked me to record a gospel song, and it’s finally ready for the world to hear!”
Shelburne has been honing his craft for a long time now and I believe this project will launch him into a whole new level of success …. and big time success is what this guy deserves … He is the real deal,” says Joe Bonsall the lead singer of The Oak Ridge Boys.
JD’s music channels his small-town roots amid his journey from regional star to the national stage. Blending those roots and unafraid to ask help from friends along the way, opens up a whole new list of opportunities for the rising star!
