Elvie Shane‘s current single “My Boy” is climbing the country airplay chart with its autobiographical story of the relationship he has with his son.
Elvie shares the story of how his wife, and son came into his life at just the right time, “I met my wife in Bowling Green Kentucky we had both going to western Kentucky University and we just couldn’t figure out what we wanted to be when we grew up. So I met her she was working at a bar that I would go and play pool at all the time . I was playing guitar on the weekend doing some little bar gigs and stuff making a little bit of money and playing pool all day during the week with my friends. When I met her, found out she had a little boy, I was ready for a big shift in my life and they became two big reasons to make that shift.”
Elvie says that when it comes to the song “My Boy” – it was Garth Brooks who helped him and his cowrites zero in on the tone and message of the track, “There’s an old Garth Brooks song that says ‘blood is thicker than water, but love is thicker than blood’. That’s the message we were trying to get out with this song, ‘My Boy.'”
Elvie Shane made his second appearance on the Grand Ole Opry this weekend – but it was in late April during his Opry debut that he got to play his song “My Boy” and share the story with the crowd…
