Country Talent Knows Luck Can’t Explain Away God-Sized Circumstances
NASHVILLE, TN (December 8, 2023) — Country talent Shane Profitt is striking a chord with new track, “Good Luck And God,” available now via BMLG Records. Capable of stopping you in your tracks, the sentimental song is the second release in the rollout of Profitt’s next cycle of new music. Immersed in a familiar slow and twangy beat, “Good Luck And God” transports a classic Country sound into a current reflective tune, sure to pull any listener in.
Well-versed in what many would call “luck,” Shane Profitt has had a front row seat to how life can change in an instant. After meeting his Country music idol in a sushi restaurant, the Tennessee-native went from mowing medians in his hometown to signing a record and publishing deal in a matter of months. Now, looking back on the past two years, Profitt is sharing what his small town and tight-knit family taught him: when your luck runs out, then there’s God. Following the heartfelt “Still Picks Up” and Top 15 hit “How It Oughta Be,” the singer-songwriter is continuing to expand his catalog with stories that carry the values he wants his artistry to exude, while keeping those closest to him in mind.
“’Good Luck And God’ was the first track I wrote after I got my publishing deal, still in shock I was seeing my dreams come true,” shares Profitt. “While writing it, I got the call that after years of trying, my sister was finally going to be a mom. At that moment, I knew this song was bigger than just my story. We’ve all had powerful moments in life that shouldn’t simply be chalked up to luck. I wanted this to be a reminder that sometimes luck can’t explain away those God-sized circumstances.”
“A high school kid puts a truck in a ditch and walks away without a scratch /
Man says a little prayer, throws his money out there and leaves Vegas with a thousand bucks cash /
Yeah, after two years tryin’, she broke down cryin’ ‘cause she’s finally gonna be a mom /
Some call it good luck, but I call it God”
Ultimately inspiring the first verse, the powerful moment with his sister and many other lived experiences are put on full display in the song. Penned by Profitt, alongside Pryor Baird and Jamie Paulin, the track was born not only from experience, but gratitude—recognizing the comparison between luck and God and which one goes further in the long run.
Since signing with BMLG Records in 2022, Shane Profitt spent the year touring the country and recording his next phase of music, winning the multitudes over with his “what you see if what you get” authenticity, fun-loving live shows, and southern-anthem tunes. The charismatic and fun-loving guy that “sings with gusto and exudes personality” (Billboard), is gearing up for the release of more new music at the top of 2024.

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 most 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. The Tennessee native is just getting started. For more information, visit shaneprofitt.com.
