About the Artists
Elijah Wise from Cosby, Tennessee has a very traditional country sound with an outlaw flare about him. Elijah gives credit to his greatest influences Keith Whitley, Tracy Lawrence, Travis Tritt, and George Jones, as they shaped the way he sounds today. In the early years of life, Elijah grew up singing with his father. It wasn’t until Elijah was right around 20 years old when he picked up the guitar and quickly fell in love with it. Elijah took guitar lessons from bluegrass legend Wyatt Rice at East Tennessee State University to add a whole new dynamic to his sound. After being put into a financial bind and leaving the university, he decided to start his journey as a professional musician. After just a few months Elijah began playing anywhere from 5-7 nights a week as a full time musician in some of the biggest venues in East Tennessee. He now lives in Nashville, and is chasing the dream of becoming a country star. Elijah released his first single back in September of 2020 called “She’s Movin’ On”. The song was written by Wyatt McCubbin and Carson Chamberlain and has had several radio plays in the local area. Elijah has some big things planned for the rest of the year. A couple things include on August 21st 2021 at the Cocke County fairgrounds in Newport, Tennessee, Elijah will be opening up for “The” Larry Sparks and will be back in the studio in November with Kenny Royster at Direct Image Studios in Nashville to finish up his EP. One of Elijah’s favorite venues to play at is Ole Red because there is always a great crowd and an incredibly helpful and dedicated staff to make the experience top notch for the artists and the audience. Elijah says, ” I just knew I wanted to play Ole Red because the crowd that it draws in is insane and I wanted to be a part of that kind of exposure and such a great team.” Fans can purchase Elijah’s music anywhere music is sold and can find his handles for social media at the links below.
Nashville-based country music artist J.D. Shelburne was raised on a tobacco farm in Taylorsville, Kentucky, just outside of Louisville. When JD was 19, he found a guitar after the death of his grandmother. He quickly learned how to play it and began writing and singing songs on his own. By his sophomore year of college, he had found a few gigs at some local bars in Louisville & Lexington, Kentucky area venues, developing a large base of fans along the way. Building upon his blossoming career
as a modern country singer, songwriter and performer, his debut single and video for “One Less Girl” made its world premiere on CMT in 2018. It then went on to be a Top 30 Music Row charted song at country radio, with more than 30 adds. CMT again world premiered his second song and video for “She
Keeps Me Up Nights” in April of 2019. Shelburne is considered one of the hardest working artists in the business, playing over 2500 shows in his career. JD Shelburne’s new album “Straight From Kentucky,” was released in June of 2021. His debut single Straight from Kentucky, a modern-day anthem
to the state he holds dear to his heart, was featured in Texas Roadhouse Restaurants Nationwide in May. “Church Pew Bar Stool” reached #1
on the CMT 12-Pack Countdown during its first week and the single “Bottoms
Up Sundown” was just exclusively premiered on American Songwriter. Shelburne’s latest single “Hometown In My Headlights” was premiered by
Newsmax and People.com and was featured on CMT.
