ELVIE SHANE PREPS FOR THE HOLIDAYS WITH SPECIAL RENDITION OF “BLUE CHRISTMAS”
Shane Will Also Be Featured On Forthcoming The Rolling Stones Tribute Album Stoned Cold Country With His Version Of “Sympathy For The Devil”
Wheelhouse Records singer/songwriter Elvie Shane is getting ready for the upcoming holiday season, releasing his own rendition of “Blue Christmas,” originally made famous by Elvis Presley. Adding his signature vocals and sonic stylings, Shane’s “Blue Christmas” is available to listen HERE.
“Getting to do my own version of a song Elvis made a Holiday staple was a welcome opportunity,” shared Shane. “I love this song because it goes to show how Christmas isn’t near the joy it could be if you’re not sharing it with someone you Love. Merry Christmas, Y’all.”
It was also revealed today that Shane will feature on Stoned Cold Country, a forthcoming project paying tribute to The Rolling Stones from some of Country’s biggest acts. Shane contributes a spine-tingling version of “Sympathy For The Devil” to the collection that also features performances by Jimmie Allen, Brooks & Dunn, Brothers Osborne, Eric Church, Steve Earle, Elle King, Marcus King, Little Big Town, Ashley McBryde, Maren Morris, Elvie Shane, Koe Wetzel, The War And Treaty, Lainey Wilson and Zac Brown Band.
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. Shane has celebrated multiple milestones with his hit single “My Boy” topping the charts at Country radio and being certified PLATINUM by the RIAA. “My Boy” is taken from Shane’s 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 were quick to praise the cohesive set with the album landing on 2021 “Best Of” lists including Billboard, Rolling Stone and Nashville Scene. “If you listen to just one major-label debut by a dude this year, consider Elvie Shane’s” declared Rolling Stone, while Stereogum noted the record “forces you to rethink anything you think you know, or assume, about the genre’s Music Row bros.” Billboard also determined Shane is “making the case for a new mainstay in Country music.” The singer/songwriter undertook his first-ever headlining run this year, with his MY KINDA TROUBLE TOUR marking some of Shane’s first live performances of BACKSLIDER. Shane’s picture-based lyrics and knack for storytelling has led to opening slots on the road with Darius Rucker, Jason Aldean, Toby Keith, Brothers Osborne, Brooks & Dunn and Lady A, to name a few.
