In addition to the “Run Rudolph Run” release, Shelburne was recently honored with his own exhibit at the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame. These exhibits serve as an effort to highlight artists who have made a lasting impact on the music industry. On their official website, visitors will find more information about each artist and when their exhibit will become available for public viewing in the museum. All unveiling ceremonies will follow social distancing guidelines. Shelburne expresses his gratitude and love for the state that set a fire in his heart.

“As a fellow Kentuckian, I am humbled to know that I will have an exhibit in the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame," said Shelburne. "I am grateful and honored to know that I have achieved enough success in my career to achieve something of this caliber. I cannot put into words what this means and what the Commonwealth, the fans, my hometown, my family all mean to me. My roots still run deep down an ole dirt road that traces back to Taylorsville, KY for generations and beyond.”

As part of a special unveiling of his exhibit at the Kentucky Country Music Hall of Fame, Shelburne was presented with a formal acclamation from Governor Andy Beshear of Kentucky, honoring JD Shelburne for his accomplishments in country music. “What an incredible honor from the Governor of Kentucky to acknowledge my career and issue this wonderful acclamation recognizing it. Thank you to the Governor and staff,” shares Shelburne.

Shelburne constantly reveals his thankfulness for being a Kentucky native. If you know JD, you know that he was born and bred in the hill country and raised to live and breathe the bluegrass state. From appearing on the cover of the 2020 Kentucky Visitors guide, being awarded with the titles of the University of Kentucky’s 2016 Alumnus of the year, awarded the Official Kentucky Colonel and Honorable Admiral by the Governor, and graduating with 2 degrees from Lexington Community College and The University of Kentucky in 2005 and 2007; that young college kid who picked up a guitar and taught himself to play can hardly believe the blessings that he has received to date. Performing at multiple fairs/ festivals & stadiums across the United States including performances with over 50 National acts including Tim McGraw at Hometown Rising in 2019, NBA games, MLB Baseball games, NASCAR Races, the Kentucky Derby, and having multiple singles featured on CMT leading up to the release of his 2021 album, Shelburne now holds the high honor of his very own exhibit alongside other Kentucky native stars who influenced his music career such as Montgomery Gentry, Dwight Yoakam and more.

“Everything about my everyday life, my songwriting, my albums, my fans, family, and friends all go through Kentucky. I am thankful for this honor and I can't wait for my fans to see what we have chosen to display in the exhibit for the feature.”
