J.D. Shelburne's Debut Single "One Less Girl" Gaining Traction At Country Radio
Shelburne's debut single off 'Two Lane Town' picks up adds by 15 Country radio stations throughout the U.S.
Nashville recording artist and Country crooner J.D. Shelburne has been very busy lately promoting "One Less Girl," the first single from his 4th studio album, Two Lane Town. "One Less Girl" made its world-wide premiere on CMT in September (click here to watch), and is now starting to gain traction and make an impact at Country radio, with a growing number of Program Directors adding it to their station’s regular rotation.
"As an artist that has been in this town for 10 years, I can finally say I have a song on country radio! I have been working around the clock, touring non stop, meeting as many fans along the way as I can and making connections," says Shelburne. " I just picked up my 15th add on Country radio last week! I am thrilled for this and to see where it takes us. I truly feel the sky is the limit."
Stations which have added “One Less Girl” to their regular programming include: KAIR (Horton, Kan.), KQKI (Bayou Vista, La.), KRGI (Grand Island, Neb.), KWHW (Altus, Okla.), WMCI (Neoga, Ill.), KFAV (Warrenton, Miss.), WGGC (Bowling Green, Ky.), WEIO (Huntingdon, Tenn.), WMEV (Marion, Va.), WOOZ (Harrisburg, Ill.), KHBZ (Harrison, Ark.) KCNY (Greenbrier, Ark.), KRRV (Alexandria, La.), KCLQ (Lebanon, Mo.), and KXOX (Sweetwater, Tex.).
With a reputation as one of the hardest working independent artists in Nashville, Shelburne performs at more than 230 live events per year, and is a regular feature on Nashville’s famous downtown Broadway corridor. Big stages are no stranger to Shelburne, who has opened for many household names in country music like Miranda Lambert, Jamey Johnson, Montgomery Gentry, Clay Walker, and many more.
