Elvie Shane Kicks Off 2024 with New Track “What Do I Know”

Elvie Shane shares brand new track “What Do I Know,” out now, January 5th, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the new track below.

As fans gear up for the release of Elvie Shane’s sophomore album, Damascus, the singer is plugging away at releasing new music. To kick off 2024, Shane is adding to his impressive catalog of tunes with a head-turning, new song called “What Do I Know.”

In true Elvie Shane fashion, “What Do I Know” is full of truth-telling and personal lyrics. Much like the singer-songwriter’s previous releases, the song highlights Shanes’ hard-working and country upbringing. Once again, the singer expresses how proud he is of his roots and being a son of an average Joe. The song portrays an effortless confidence without trying too hard, something we have come to love from Shane’s music.

“I think red lipstick on a woman’s lips look sexy // I think coke’s okay, but it’s way damn better with jack // I think the outlaws, Waylon and Johnny are gone forever // I think Jesus // He’s coming back // Oh, but what do I know // what do I know // I’m just a hard-working, beer-working, son of an average Joe // Like to think there ain’t nothing that I can’t fix with a hammer and crescent wrench, oh, but what do I know // what do I know // what do I know”

Shane continues to showcase his staying power, song after song. “What Do I Know” is a perfect addition to the singer’s repertoire.

Elvie Shane Adds to Music Catalog with New Song “Pill”

Elvie Shane shares brand new song “Pill,'” out now, September 29th, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the new track below.

With each and every release, singer-songwriter Elvie Shane cements his staying power in country music. He continues to create music that is both meaningful to him and his fanbase, while keeping his feet firmly planted in traditional country sounds. His newest song, “Pill” is the perfect addition to his growing music catalog.

Shane’s new song is one of his most personal to date. “Pill,” a heart-wrenching song about battling addiction is both a musical truth and a reminder to others that they are not alone. According to Shane in a recent TikTok, the song hits close to home. “My last one dropping this year, 2023. It’s very close to the ticker as they say, a very personal story,” he begins. “I wrote this song. It was inspired by some struggles that I’ve had along the way and from the perspective of a letter to myself from little brother during some of my darkest days. I hope that it reaches somebody who needs to hear it and just makes them want to go back home and try to change things a little bit.”

The four and a half minute song might be Shane’s best song to date. Country music thrives when honesty is at the forefront, and that’s exactly what is apparent on “Pill.” This is a must listen to song!

Elvie Shane Shares Brand New Song “Jonesin'”

Elvie Shane shares brand new song “Jonesin'” out now, July 28th, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the new track below.

A year and a half after his debut album, Backslider, Elvie Shane is back with more original music. He recently released his new song, “Forgotten Man” and “Baptized.” Now the singer-songwriter is following up the release with his new song, “Jonesin’.”

In a recent press release, Shane shared, “”Jonesin'” is all about our vices and failures in the pursuit of satisfaction and happiness. It came with the realization that you could have everything you’ve ever dreamed of and still be left feeling empty at times. That’s just life. But that void can be a beautiful thing when used as fuel. It can piss you off enough to quit the bad habits or fire you up enough to chase the seemingly unattainable.”

“Jonesin’ puts all of Shane’s talents to the forefront. The country-rock anthem feels honest, dark, and enticing. With each lyric and complementary instrumental, the singer shares a compelling story about life, habits, and everything in between. While the song is definitely relatable, Shane’s vocals are a standout on the new track.

Shane is a unique talent in country music right now. It will be exciting to see what this new era of music continues to bring for the rising star!

Elvie Shane Releases New Song “Forgotten Man”

Elvie Shane shares brand new song “Forgotten Man” out now, March 31st, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the new track below.

A year and a half after his debut album, Backslider, Elvie Shane is back with more original music. Like everything that came before it, Shane’s new song “Forgotten Man” is an ode to his upbringing and his country-rock roots. The new single is the perfect addition to the hitmaker’s growing catalog.

Written by Shane with Dan Couch, Luke Preston, and Oscar Charles, “Forgotten Man” is the ultimate song for the hard-working people who do whatever it takes to make ends meet, while still standing up for what they believe in. According to the singer this song is “the song I’ve been trying to write since I started all this.” He also shared that the American dream is something that evokes a lot of feelings, adding, “I’m wearing that [Forgotten Man] patch, too. I’m out here trying to give an honest account of who I am and put an honest effort into what I do. I actually do give a sh*t, and I will place my bet on those people I’m singing about in this song against all odds.”

“I got a little white house with a flag in the front // Way that it is, is the way that it was // Dirt turns to mud here, steel turns to rust // The color of my neck’s still the same as my blood // Daddy spent his whole life working for a dollar // Name on his patch, more like a badge of honor // Sent me off to school, tried to turn me to a scholar // Can’t unpaint the blue on my collar”

Shane is a unique talent in country music right now. It will be exciting to see what this new era of music brings!

Elvie Shane: ‘Backslider’ – Album Review

Elvie Shane’s debut album Backslider is out now, October 29th on all streaming platforms. Check out our full review and listen to the brand new music below.

Earlier this year, we were introduced to a brand new recording artist in country music, Elvie Shane. We were blown away by his debut EP County Roads, which featured six country-rock songs that showcased his artistry and grit. Today, the singer-songwriter released his debut album, Backslider. The record boasts fifteen original songs that traditional and modern country fans alike will fall in love with.

The album kicks off with a stunning song called “I Will Run.” The powerful track depicts all of the instances in our lives that we normally run away from. Instead, the beautiful thing is, what we run towards. Shane has a way of flipping a poignant word on its head and making you rethink it, proof of his incredible songwriting.

Another common thread on Backslider is Shane’s ability to showcase his personal story through fun and alluring songs. His number one single “My Boy” depicts his unconventional road to fatherhood, while “My Mississippi” is the personal story of his life. Similarly, Shane brings the nostalgia on “Love, Cold Beer, Cheap Smoke” and the EP’s title-track, “County Roads.”

Shane slows things down on his previously-released “Sundress.” One of our favorites from his debut EP, “Sundress” portrays the singer’s sensitive side.  The sensual lyrics are both vulnerable and touching. Of course, the singer’s vocals also shine on the track. Proving that the artist is just as talented as a songwriter as he is a vocalist.

“We snuck off just around midnight // Threw a little red dust in her tail lights // Drove far enough to get real close // Pulled off on a no-name road // I still think about her now and then // How the night looked on her skin // Ain’t never seen a sunset like // her sundress sitting in the moonlight”

Similarly, we cannot help, but to love Shane’s song “Rocket Science.” Although somber, the new song is relatable and beautiful. The singer professes that understanding the one he loves is like learning “rocket science.” After just one listen, it is clear the singer knows a thing or two about heartache. Shane continues to break himself right open for fans on his killer collaboration with Tenille Townes, “Nothin’ Lasts Forever” as well.

Of course, Shane makes sure to double down on the country-rock elements of his artistry on his full-length record as well. “Saturday Night Me” depicts the slower elements of rock, while “Heartbreaks & Headaches” and “My Kinda Trouble” are the best of the country-rock genre!

However, the record culminates with another intricate ballad called “Miles (with my Mama).” The song is deeply personal, as it portrays the singer’s struggle with losing his father and the emotions that come from that pain. A tribute of sorts, the song digs into the good and the bad of loving and missing someone. Similar to the vulnerability of the hit, “My Boy,” “Miles” is another example of why Shane has cemented a place in country music.

Overall the fifteen-track debut is one of the best of the year. Shane is unapologetically himself. He can write, sing, and convey a story like no one else right now. Backslider is everything we hoped it would be and a must-listen for all.

Who Is Elvie Shane? The Story Behind His Journey to Country Music

Who is Elvie Shane? The singer-songwriter joined us to chat about his journey to country music. Get to know the rising star here…

Elvie Shane

Elvie Shane

This week our spotlight shines on Broken Bow Records recording artist, Elvie Shane. The singer-songwriter released his debut EP County Roads last month and his debut single “My Boy” just broke into the top 25 on the country charts. We chatted with the singer about his whirlwind few months and all the work he has put in to get to this point.

A Kentucky native, Shane never lived a day without music in his life, yet never dreamed that it would be his career. “My mom likes to say I was born on a Sunday and the following Sunday she had me in church,” adding, “The first week out of the hospital I was exposed to music on a weekly basis, or even a daily basis, listening to 90s country in the car with my mom.” As the singer reminisces about his childhood he labels those Sundays as probably “the most monumental days as far as music goes in [his] life.”

Shane quickly found a love for 90s country, but he credits his family for his diverse musical taste. His dad introduced him to classic rock, the grittier side of country music, southern rock, and even The Temptations. “I was just exposed to a lot of different stuff from R&B to Rock and Roll, to Country, to Gospel music, and that was pretty much in one Sunday, every Sunday of my life.” Specifically, the singer shared a love for John Fogerty, Steve Earl, and even appreciates the harmonies in groups like Boyz II Men, a group his mother took a liking to.

Eventually, his love of music and his faith led him to play in a band with other churchgoers until he left home to attend college. While in college, the singer played gigs at bars and remembers writing music, but after meeting his now wife, he admits he hung his guitar up for a few years. Thankfully, the singer got back out on the music scene a few years later, after he met some of his wife’s friends, who had a band. Shane ended up opening up for them early in his career.

Despite his clear talent and the encouragement of his friends and family to head to Nashville to write and try to ‘make it,’ the singer was hesitant. “I wasn’t really connecting with what was going on in country music at a time,” he begins, before sharing the event that actually changed his mind, “But one night Chris Stapleton and Justin Timberlake ended up on stage together at CMAs and I’d been a Stapleton fan forever ’cause he’s another Kentucky boy. […] It’s probably one of the most incredible performances that we will ever hear.”

Shane went on to share his internal dialogue after watching the iconic performance, which solidified his desire to head to Nashville. “If these two different worlds can blend in such a way then there has to be a place for me in country music somewhere,” he thought. Moments later, his buddy, who has been trying to convince him to come to Nashville to write called him, and he finally agreed to take the leap.

Shortly after coming to Nashville, Shane scored a publishing deal; however, after he wrote his now debut single “My Boy,” record deals started calling. The singer eventually signed with Broken Bow Records, and just recently put out his debut EP County Roads. The record was inspired by the coming of age years in life. “What better way to relate to people is to try to focus on those years, the first loves, love lost, love found, where I grew up, how I grew up.”

Although all the songs on the record are spectacular in their own rights, “My Boy” is the current fan favorite. Written during what Shane calls “a God moment,” the single went viral on Facebook and then viral on TikTok three years after it was initially written. Ironically the singer was worried about making “My Boy” his single, but eventually, he came to his senses realizing, “What better time in history in music to put a song about love and family than a time when were stuck in the house together, so we put it out, and here we fit.” We agree!

At the end of our conversation, Shane made sure to let us know that he will be hitting the road as much as possible this year. He even hinted at touring with both male and female artists in “the same realm as [he] is in country music.” It is only a matter of time until Shane is on a stage near you and releasing even more new music!
