Shelby Singleton

Martin Hawkins, Country Music Review, August 1976

SHELBY SINGLETON is well known in the country music business and really should not need introducing to CMR readers. But magazines in the main rightly tend to concentrate on musicians and singers rather than record label bosses or producers, and I feel that Shelby's story will come as a surprise to many as well as being of great interest to country enthusiasts. This was so when CMR ran the late Mike Leadbitter's story on Don Pierce of Starday in 1975, and Shelby Singleton's career has been even more eventful.
