T.G. Sheppard Celebrates 40th Anniversary Of #1 Hit “Slow Burn”

Sheppard’s “Nothin’ On But The Radio” Available For Streaming


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Country music legend T.G. Sheppard celebrates the 40th Anniversary of his #1 hit single “Slow Burn” which was released in September 1983 and was the title track of the hit album as well. “Slow Burn” became Sheppard’s thirteenth number-one hit, spending fourteen weeks in the Top 40. The album also included the popular singles “Somewhere Down The Line” and “Make My Day” with Clint Eastwood which was added to the record for a re-release in February 1984 and used in the hit film ‘Sudden Impact’ starring Eastwood. Produced by Jim Ed Norman and written by Charlie Black and Tommy Rocco, “Slow Burn” remains one of Sheppard’s most requested songs to date.

“Back in the day, I had one of the greatest record producers ever, Jim Ed Norman,” smiles Sheppard. “He had worked with my favorite group, The Eagles and when it came time to add harmonies he knew exactly what the record needed to go #1. He was and still is one of the best in our great business and “Slow Burn” is still my favorite out of all the #1’s I’ve been blessed to have!”

Sheppard’s 1997 album, ‘Nothin’ On But the Radio,’ was recently released to all streaming services for the first time ever. Throughout his career, Sheppard had assembled a collection of songs he loved and always hoped to record, holding on to some for quite a while, by his own admission. By 1997, he finally had the opportunity to record them, resulting in ‘Nothin’ On But The Radio.’ The album was released by StarVista Retail and can be streamed HERE.

In 2021, StarVista Retail digitally released nine of Sheppard’s albums which featured several of his #1 hits and many all-time fan favorites including ‘Finally!,’ ‘T.G.,’ ‘I Love ‘Em All,’ ‘One Owner Heart,’ ‘Smooth Sailin’,’ ‘Slow Burn,’ ‘Perfect Stranger,’ ‘3/4 Lonely‘ and ‘Iconic Duets.’
