George Shingleton

February 10, 2023

Nashville-based country singer-songwriter George Shingleton, released the album, Out All Nighter, was released in December 2020. American Songwriter said, "There’s a lost honesty in country music like Shingleton’s...." Born and bred in rural West Virginia, Shingleton’s Appalachian extended family ties run deep; music-making has been in Shingleton’s blood, quite literally, from his early days of singing and playing instruments in the church. Beyond his sacred, sanctuary-nurtured musical roots, Shingleton’s influences run the gamut from Hank Williams Jr., Merle Haggard, and Waylon Jennings, to Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers Band. Though he began strumming guitars at age 12, Shingleton didn’t begin writing songs seriously until he was almost 30, doubling down on his craft once he moved to Nashville from West Virginia to pursue his dream fulltime. With Shingleton’s music toeing the blurry lines between Americana, country, blues, Southern rock, and gospel, it’s the integrity of his stories and sound has earned him the respect of other artists, including Darryl Worley, John Michael Montgomery, Bucky Covington, Montgomery Gentry, Charlie Daniels, Bo Bice, and Keith Anderson, all of whom have invited him to share their stage.
