Multi-City Run Follows Major Recent Milestones For Shane Including His Hit “My Boy” Topping The Radio Charts And Being Certified GOLD
Wheelhouse Records singer/songwriter Elvie Shane announced he will launch his first-ever headlining run, with his MY KINDA TROUBLE TOUR set to kick off on February 17, 2022 in Chattanooga, TN. The multi-city stint will see Shane play major cities including Chicago, IL, Nashville, TN and more, and will mark some of Shane’s first live performances of his debut record Backslider. Joining him on tour will be Country newcomer, Frank Ray. Tickets for the tour will go on sale beginning this Friday (11/19) at 10am local time at elvieshane.com.
Shane’s tour announcement follows the recent celebration of his No. 1 debut hit single “My Boy” topping the charts at Country radio and being certified GOLD by the RIAA. “My Boy” is taken from Shane’s just-released 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 have already been quick to praise the cohesive set with Billboard declaring “Shane’s debut album, smartly keeps the singer-songwriter’s church-bred vocal tone front and center, lifting up tracks like “I Will Run” and “Sundress” and making the case for a new mainstay in Country music.”
“I’ve never been more ready to break the chains!” shared Shane. “Getting to go out on the road for my first headlining tour is something we’ve been plotting for a while, and feels like just the kinda trouble I could get into. I can’t wait to get out there and play this record live.”
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. And after a fateful Baptist revival came through town, he joined a band as a front man full of wild-eyed charisma. Shane initially captured attention with a viral social media moment with “My Boy,” that has since become his signature smash and debut No. 1 single. Shane’s debut EP, County Roads was released earlier this year. His picture-based lyrics and knack for storytelling lead to his signing with UTA and he has since opened for Jason Aldean, Toby Keith, Brothers Osborne Brett Young and Lady A, to name a few. Shane also just wrapped a stint on the road opening for Brooks & Dunn on their 2021 Reboot Tour. For more information, visit elvieshane.com.
