Debut Single “How It Oughta Be” Enters Top 20 After Only 16 Weeks at Radio
NASHVILLE, TN (February 15, 2023) – BMLG Records recording artist SHANE PROFITT releases the “Guys Like Me” music video from his MAURY COUNTY LINE EP today. The debut collection also includes tracks like “Better Off Fishin’,” as well as his fast-rising Top 20 debut single, “How It Oughta Be.” In a genre that is being taken over by a contemporary sound, this small-town Tennessee native is reminding Country fans that to keep it classic and remember where they came from. True to the track, the visual for “Guys like Me” shows Profitt driving around on his four-wheeler and enjoying the great outdoors in his care-free, “what you see is what you get” kind of way.
“This video was so fun to shoot. I got to be myself and show what guys like me are all about,” shared Profitt. “This is the song I wrote for all the blue-collar men and women that work hard and appreciate what makes them who they are. A year ago, I was punching a clock myself, so getting to sing songs for people just like me is very special.”
As if perfectly planned, Profitt’s debut single, “How It Oughta Be,” is also soaring up the charts into the Top 20 after only 16 weeks at radio. In his usual fashion, “Profitt’s heart can undoubtably be heard through every note, from what kind of friend he is to what he believes in at the end of the day” (People) and fans can’t get enough of his authentic approach to what he creates and performs.
It’s been immensely clear that Profitt has a natural-born, raw talent, since the retired blue-collar southerner joined the Big Machine Label Group roster in May of last year. Not only is he winning listeners over with each music release, but many 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 mowing grass for 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 topping the charts.
