JD Shelburne Teams Up With The Oak Ridge Boys For “Amazing Grace” Rendition (Review)

Country music artist JD Shelburne has released his own version of John Newton’s hymn “Amazing Grace” featuring The Oak Ridge Boys. This release comes ahead of the Taylorsville, Kentucky’s upcoming album Neon Hallelujah out July 28th.

“Amazing Grace” is a heavily covered song and this rendition is brimming with extensive instrumentation and timeless vocals that draw attention to the monumental emotive element of the song. This cover complements the array of Shelburne’s prior releases and the legendary Oak Ridge Boys make it shine.

Shelburne told Whiskey Riff, “When I emailed Joe (Bonsall) a few months ago to ask if they would even consider, I honestly had no idea how he would respond. I was so grateful to get all 4 members to agree. I never dreamed I would get so lucky. It’s a thrill for me as a fan of their music and now as an artist to collaborate with the group. Out of all the things that have happened in my music career, recording with The Oak Ridge Boys is at the very top of my list.”

He continues, “I am so honored to get the opportunity to record with the Country Music Hall of Fame/Opry Members, The Legendary Oak Ridge Boys on my new album. It was a once in a lifetime moment for me to go into the studio and record with one of the most recognized gospel groups, with one of gospel music’s most iconic songs, Amazing Grace.

The upcoming 14-track collection features this work, as well as previously released title track “Neon Hallelujah” and “The Devil In Me,” and new songs “Cars & Trucks,” “Raise One Up” and “Let Love Down.”
