Enjoy local Fourth of July celebrations and listen to JD Shelburne's newest single | The 411

You can enjoy some fireworks and listen to a new summer single by a Kentucky native this weekend.

While this year's Fourth of July celebrations won't look the same as they did last year, there will still be plenty of things to enjoy this weekend.

Kentucky native releases summer single

Country artist and Kentucky native JD Shelburne released his new summer single ‘Church Pew Bar Stool’ this week. The song will be a part of his upcoming album 'Straight from Kentucky.' 

In an interview with CMT, Shelburne said the song holds a powerful message.

"No matter which way you turn, God always listens and is there for you. I think in today’s time people tend to forget that…whether you are sitting on a church pew or a bar stool," he told CMT

Shelburne also said the video for the song was shot at a small church in Franklin, Kentucky.

On Twitter, Shelburne said he plans to make a concert announcement on Monday, July 6 at 10 a.m.
