“When spending the early part of Fall listening for a Christmas tune to record, I knew The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire) had to be in my holiday collection,” shares Shelburne. “It’s honestly been one of my childhood favorites growing up in Kentucky. It’s one of those 1940’s Classic Christmas tunes that immediately takes me back to the family farm and so many great Christmas memories surrounded by my family. I have so many favorite holiday songs and this one has been in my top five since I was a kid, so I knew I had to record it eventually. I am excited to share this song with my fans in hopes that I can put them in the spirit a little early this year. Also, I wanted to make the album cover a little more special this season by using my mother’s handwriting to write the title “The Christmas Song” – the cover is a photo of my brother Tommy and I back in 1987.”
Shelburne continues to make positive impressions in the music industry with his most recent album Straight From Kentucky which reached #9 on the iTunes charts in 2021, and features from CMT, GAC, People, Newsmax, and NBC.
