The country music video you’ve been waiting for…

JD Shelburne’s new country music video, “Farmboy,” starring Joker Phillip on bass guitar, premiered today on the worldwide web. Watch as Joker rocks out on bass with Shelburne, a Taylorsville native and diehard Kentucky fan.

Shelburne will be performing in Louisville during the State Fair this weekend and then again at Austin City Saloon in Lexington on Saturday, August 25 at 10:00 pm. Joker Phillips will not be there.

    J.D. Shelburne is as much of a farmboy as we are a football team

    Now this is what country music has been waiting for! Finally, somebody as written a song about things they learned from their grandparents and life growing up on the farm, and how they’ll never lose those values. I can’t believe no country singer has ever written a song just exactly like this one.

    Have to admit, not a big fan of this. I guess any publicity is good publicity. Nick I love your sarcasm, I caught it. Some body trying to look like Jake Owen.

    Joker has no flare, no excitement. Almost like he doesn’t have interest. Reminds me of something else we’re used to seeing on the football field.

    Spelling out words in a song is a red flag for the song sucks. Only time it was successful was in R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

    I dare you to find me a new country song that is not about/or mentions

    a)being from a small town/ being country
    b)pickup trucks / off-roading
    c)”Honkey Tonks”
    d)Preachers’ daughters
    e)Whiskey

    K maybe you can find a few, but not many.

    11:21 am August 15, 2012 Permalink

    I would have loved to have gotten behind this song but as an actual farmer it just can’t happen. First off those glasses and that outfit don’t belong on any farm. JD used to actually be country but now he is going all Keith Urban on us. I like some of the verse but spelling out farmboy wasn’t his best play there, sounds like another cheesy redneck anthem. JD stick to your roots man and be honest. You have the talent and now the stage, don’t waste it. Seriously loose the glasses lol

    GO CATS!

    Steve, are you implying that since I am not a big fan of JD Shelburne’s music that I am a UL fan. lol, That’s pretty awesome. I like JD Shelburne as person I just do not care for his music or that fact he looks so much like Jake Owen. I will probably see him at the fair, probably will even talk to him as I have in the past. Steve you seem like a JD Shelburne publicist or a relative. Way to be objective.

    I think it’s funny that people want to hold it against JD for looking like another country artist…..first of all…..JD does not try to look like anyone but himself….and second…..Jake is doing really well, has a BEAUTIFUL wife, a number one song and is on the biggest tour of the year at the moment so I’d say comparing him to Jake Owen is not a bad thing. Stop being jealous that someone you may or may not know personally is having some success and doing better than you are!

You dont have to like anyones music…but when you hide behine a screename and hate on JD thats enough for me to smile. GO CATS!! GO JD!!!!!

    Steve, Parking and admission are free (when you know the right people), funnel cakes are terrible, I go for the pork chop sandwiches, other artists in the Savori Tent,& other free concerts. PAC, anyone but himself? Seriously. I’m sure he had someone pick him out a pink V-Neck this morning. Jealousy is a big word that I’m surprised you could spell. I’m sure JD Shelburne has worked his tail off to get to where he is, and he deserves the success he is having right now, but if he wants to further this success he and his fans/Mom will have to deal with critics. It’s easy to say someone is jealous and discredit the criticism you’ve just received, but it’s hard to accept the criticism and move on to improve your life with that criticism. His success is nothing but good for the state, Not a fan (which is short for fanatic, PAC), but I will support JD Shelburne. PAC, please don’t talk yourself through an insult, it’s embarrassing.

    I just want to say that I have seen JD live several times. He is one of the best performers I have ever seen. This is what country music has needed. He is always himself no matter what, he clearly loves what he is doing, loves his fans and shows his appreciation for all of them. He is never too good to talk to me or anyone else at his shows. He writes music about his life and we (his fans) can relate to it. You can’t please everyone. Heck, Kenny Chesney is the biggest in country music hands down and there are people that don’t like him and make negative comments about him but as you can see they don’t affect him or his career as none of these will for JD. The way I see it, whether you are making a positive or negative comment, you are still taking the time to talk about JD. The promotion is great! Keep rockin JD.

    I played high school basketball with JD. His family did a lot of farming when I was younger, so I can say with some certainty that he isn’t pulling this out of his ass.

    Good luck to JD, if in fact you really are a UK fan. If not, then I don’t care so much. I’ve become less of a fan of today’s version of country music. If you want to hear a young country musician that keeps it country and western, listen to Stoney Larue. I’m going to see him tomorrow night in Nashville at the Exit In if any real country fans are out there.

    46- country music died in the late 90’s.

    Everything in every music genre these days is angled toward kids. Kids have their money and their parents’ money, too. And kids generally get what they want. This same logic applies across multiple markets, too. Food, clothes, cars, etc. So, generic, re-sampled, over-played beats and simple lyrics dominate everything. Oh, throw in some constant sex references and you have Pop, the most widely accepted form of this sonic trash. Then you get to listen to 8-y/o girls singing Niki Manaj songs.

    Across genres. Beats are the same. Fill is the same. Add some banjo, take out the synthesizer… still the same thing. Run it all thru a laptop and clean it up (because real talent is dead) to sound passable and make 10million copies.

    Don’t believe it’s all the same stuff? Science proves it.

    I hope Joker does a better of of coaching football this year then he did of fake playing bass in this video. Dont see how it helped his image at all to be a barely shown prop in a bad country music video. Would have rather seen Cal call Drake and get him to put Joker in one of his videos. Atleast he could do for getting that UK National Championship ring for him. Joker in a Drake video >>> Joker in a Chris Gaines/JD Whoever video.
