DETROIT -- In his hometown of Detroit, David Shelby knew there was a new brand of country music waiting to be born. His introduction to music began with an accordion, then he moved on to the trumpet and eventually graduating with a guitar. His mind was wired for sound as a natural born musician and composer. The Motor City soul grittiness and rock scene gave him his inspiration. Now living in Nashville, David's songs reflect his admiration for the history of country music.

The Rust Belt Country CD refers to the Midwest city as the rust belt part of America where they love their beer cold and their cars hot. His energy for his hometown also reflects how they play hard but also has a soft spot in that big industrial part of country music. A formidable entertainer in his own right, David Shelby's show is filled with heart and conviction and highlights his exceptional artistry as a music mechanic. To his credit, David has opened for Styx, Foreigner and Hank Williams, Jr.

"Kick A Little Dirt Around" is his debut single release, which is an orchestrated boot-scootin tune that injects soul into this hillbilly tale. The song has a harmonica intro with dueling fiddles and guitars.

"Story of Our Lives" talks about chasing the American Dream with life's unexpected turns, trials and tribulations.

I personally liked the CD. My favorite songs are: "Kick A Little Dirt Around," "What Kind of Kiss," "Moonshine" and "Story of Our Lives." I definitely think this CD is worth listening to. The style of his music and lyrics will create a lasting impression on your mind. It's worth a listen.
