Elvie Shane Releases New Track “Forgotten Man”March 31, 2023
Marking the first new music since BBR Music Group/Wheelhouse Records singer/songwriter Elvie Shane’s acclaimed Backslider album debut, Shane shares his new song “Forgotten Man” today, available to listen here. An anthem for those chasing the American dream with calloused hands and a weary, but still-believing heart, it’s another example of Elvie’s deep-feeling take on country, co-written by the rising star with Dan Couch, Luke Preston, and Oscar Charles. Elvie also released a visual component to the song today, available to watch here.
With his big-hearted Platinum Number One, “My Boy,” Wheelhouse Records singer/songwriter Elvie Shane showed fans the kind of man he is – one who’ll step forward and stand for what he believes in. He calls “Forgotten Man” “the song I’ve been trying to write since I started all this,” and it finds him representing those hard-working, willing-to-sacrifice folks he’s met around the nation. But while that mission has been taken on many times before, it’s never been done quite like this.
“There’s been a lot of attempts to recognize that group of people in country music, but sometimes it feels like it’s not a very honest representation of the angst that’s involved,” Elvie explains. “It doesn’t ever really touch on how pissed off you can be, just trying to find the American dream.”
