Shane Profitt can't wait to get 'Back Home'


Fri, Mar 22nd 2024 11:55 am

Longing new ode to hometown life available now

Press Release

Tennessee-born singer-songwriter Shane Profitt today releases his latest musical creation, “Back Home” via Big Machine Label Group. Written by Profitt, multi-Platinum artist Chris Janson, hitmaker Blake Bollinger and Nate Kenyon, and produced by the Grammy Award-winning Julian Raymond, the song reiterates the notion that there is no place like home, and finds the narrator longing to get back as soon as possible.

“Home isn’t just a place, but a feeling,” Profitt said. “A lot of this song comes from my time spent on the road and missing that small-town feeling, and being near to the places, people and things you love – something I’m sure a lot of people can relate to.”

The Columbia native’s homesick new track fondly paints a vivid picture of small-town life with images of hanging out at the local Walmart parking lot, high school kids working on a farm, and back porch views.

Profitt has recently released a string of new tracks, including the laid-back love song “Two Down” and the autobiographical “I Am Who I Am.” He is continuing to work on new music.

More About Shane Profitt

A salt-of-the-earth southerner with a straight-shooting swagger and kind smile,  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 signed to Big Machine Label Group, 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 started 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.

Across his 2023 “Still Picks Up” EP, which includes his Top 15 debut 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 emerging artist is steadily releasing new music and continuing to hone his craft.
