Friendly Southerner Brings Just Enough Stubbornness on New Track — Available NOW
NASHVILLE, TN (January 12, 2023) – Singer-songwriter Shane Profitt releases his new track, “I Am Who I Am,” today, available now via BMLG Records. Having already been a fan-favorite at live shows, Profitt started performing and teasing the catchy song recently, hinting at new music right around the corner. Directly proceeding recent heartfelt tracks “Good Luck and God” and “Still Picks Up,” the Country-newcomer is delivering a more up-beat tune, expressing that it’s always better to accept what makes you who you are. Listen to “I Am Who I Am”HERE.
The Tennessee-native’s “I Am Who I Am” exudes a familiar melody but this time adds the perfect amount of stubbornness and confidence, inspiring others to be who they are and live how they want to live, regardless of the opinions of others. Written alongside Johnathen Clayton and McCoy Moore, Profitt’s new track starts out with a smooth tempo and transitions into the clockin’ out, familiar beat that has carried his artistry thus far. Ready to raise a little hell, “I Am Who I Am” continues to add the “to each their own” attitude that the friendly southerner thinks every listener needs in their life.
“’I Am Who I Am’ is one of those classic tracks that speaks to owning who you are and knowing where you come from. Nowadays, we all feel like we need to change to fit into the mold,” shares Profitt. “You can’t please everyone. Part of appreciating who you are is letting go of what people think and being unapologetically yourself.”
Ready to solidify his place in Country music and tell more of his story, the BMLG Records artist proves he has more up his sleeve. After a whirlwind two years that included a Top 15 single (“How It Oughta Be”), a debut EP (MAURY COUNTY LINE), and thousands of shows played, Profitt is continuing to roll out new music while winning over the multitudes with his “what you see if what you get” authenticity. The rising star is hitting the ground running in the new year with release and show announcements right around the corner. For tour dates, visit shaneprofitt.com/shows.
ABOUT SHANE PROFITT: A salt-of-the-earth southerner with a straight-shooting swagger and kind smile, Shane Profitt’s musical toolbox is full of all-natural talent. At the end of 2021, he was still pulling overtime at his job with the city, busting his back about an hour south of Nashville and living for the weekend — with a few decades left to go. But now, the 23-year-old is rocking sold-out crowds at the historic Ryman Auditorium, earning standing ovations at the Grand Ole Opry, and writing modern Country tunes so genuine, they slip on like a pair of broken-in work boots — because no one has to tell this singer-songwriter what a blue-collar life is all about. Profitt’s journey starts about two years ago, when his grandad asked what he wanted for Christmas and his wish was to learn how to play Hank Jr. songs on the guitar. Beginning with G, C, and D chords, he stuck with it. Gifted with a heavy-duty vocal, Profitt became a regular draw at the popular southern cooking chain, Puckett’s, traveling all over Tennessee to weekend shows while still holding down his job back home. While that made for some long hours, it also led to inspiration for original music. On recent track, “Still Picks Up,” the emerging artist introduces more layers and emotion to his usual feel-good, windows-down sound, storytelling in a way that hits close to home every time. The vulnerable tune follows the debut of his boots-on-the-ground writing style and big, barrel-chested voice on the 3-song collection Maury County Line (BMLG Records/Harpeth 60 Records). With tracks like the hook filled honky tonker “Better Off Fishin’,” chest-thumping charmer “Guys Like Me,” and his hopeful heaven-on-earth Top 15 Country radio single “How It Oughta Be,” it’s clear he puts his life to music — along with the lives of so many others.
