About Elvie Shane
A native of small-town Kentucky, early touchstones like Dwight Yoakam, Steve Earle and John Fogerty joined Wheelhouse Records’ Elvie Shane’s Gospel roots to form the bedrock of his taste – along with R&B classics like The Temptations and modern superstars like Eminem. Shane has celebrated multiple milestones with his hit single “My Boy” topping the charts at country radio and being certified PLATINUM by the RIAA. “My Boy” is taken from Shane’s debut full length album BACKSLIDER. Shane co-wrote the set that embodies the crunchy hooks of classic rock, the nostalgia of country music as well as the emotional electricity of Gospel and R&B. Critics were quick to praise the cohesive set with the album landing on 2021 “Best Of” lists including Billboard, Rolling Stone and Nashville Scene. “If you listen to just one major-label debut by a dude this year, consider Elvie Shane’s” declared Rolling Stone, while Stereogum noted the record “forces you to rethink anything you think you know, or assume, about the genre’s Music Row bros.” Billboard also determined Shane is “making the case for a new mainstay in country music.” The singer/songwriter undertook his first-ever headlining run this year, with his MY KINDA TROUBLE TOUR marking some of Shane’s first live performances of BACKSLIDER. Shane’s picture-based lyrics and knack for storytelling has led to opening slots on the road with Darius Rucker, Jason Aldean, Toby Keith, Brothers Osborne, Brooks & Dunn and Lady A, to name a few.
