Nashville Music Guide’s Artists to Watch 2023

The retired blue-collar southerner joined the Big Machine Label Group roaster in May of 2022, and since then, it’s been immensely clear that Shane Profitt has a natural-born, raw talent. Not only is he winning listeners over with each music release, but fans 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 with 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 racing the charts. Though success is knocking on Shane Profitt’s door, he will always be “makin’ noise in the holler.”

Calling himself a sucker for “Keith Whitley-style heartbreaker,” his first self-penned song was the start of a new life, and within a few months, Profitt had begun a new kind of shift work—  writing songs. And he’s just getting started. With debut single, How It Oughta Be,” in the Top 30 and climbing fast, it was only fitting to fuel the fire with more music. He has since released numerous songs including “Country Boys”, which is an instant shot of country serotonin, breaking into a catchy, toe-tapping beat from the moment you hit play.
