Feel-good new single owns country roots
Columbia, Tennessee native Shane Profitt has a blast owning his country roots in his newest track, “Country Boys,” available everywhere. With debut single, “How It Oughta Be,” in the Top 30 and climbing fast, it’s only fitting to fuel the fire with another song made for the good ole country folks. Bringing a new sound, “Country Boys” is an instant shot of country serotonin, breaking into a catchy, toe-tapping beat from the moment you hit play. Produced by Julian Raymond and co-written alongside Blake Bollinger and Nate Kenyon, Profitt knows that “‘til there ain’t no collards for the cookin,’ ain’t no catfish for the hookin’, country boys will be country boys.”
“Country boys is a windows-down, riding-backroads, feel-good song. I’m super excited for the world to hear this one, because it shows a little bit of a different side of me,” shares Profitt.
Exploring the bounds of his songwriting ability and music expertise, Profitt is marrying the two in a new tempo to showcase his voice. With banjo and jam-session vibes in play as well, “Country Boys” even adds some bluegrass into the mix, bringing the fans back to the song that started it all.
“Country boys was one of the very first songs I wrote when I got my publishing deal, and it had a huge role in me getting my record deal. I can’t wait to get feedback from the fans about this,” beams Profitt.
The retired blue-collar southerner joined the Big Machine Label Group roaster in May of this year, and since then, it’s been immensely clear that Profitt has a natural-born, raw talent. Not only is he winning listeners over with each music release, but fans are also falling in love with his genuine, care-free personality along with the Cinderella story that kickstarted this journey. Just last year, Profitt was still pulling overtime at his job with the city, busting his back about an hour south of Nashville while taking any gig or writing session he could get. Then, after meeting his idol, Chris Janson, in a random sushi restaurant in Tennessee, everything changed. The 22-year-old is now getting standing ovations at the Grand Ole Opry, rocking sold out crowds at the historic Ryman Auditorium, and writing country tunes that are racing the charts. Though success is knocking on Shane Profitt’s door, he will always be “makin’ noise in the holler.”
