'Farmboy' Shelburne to appear on country networks

J.D. Shelburne J.D. Shelburne

SPENCER COUNTY, KY (WAVE) - He hopes to be the next Tim McGraw or Blake Shelton and he's from Taylorsville, Kentucky.

Many people have heard the singing of J.D. Shelburne around Louisville. He's played everywhere from King Pin Lanes and Bearno's by the River to the new Manny and Merle on Market Street.

Now, Shelburne has a video called Farmboy that is going to get shown on two big country channels – CMT and GAC.

That much success may be hard to believe for a guy who started playing at the age of 25 after he found a guitar in his grandmother's closet after she passed away.

The humble guy from Spencer County, who has already opened for acts like Clay Walker, hopes to someday play at the KFC Yum! Center and the Grand Ole Opry.
