Close to his Hometown

J.D. Shelburne hails from across the county line, but he’s had a tie to Anderson County basketball before he was ever able to shoot a 3-pointer.

“I was named J.D. after Jimmy Dan Conner, an Anderson County legend!” Shelburne says of Kentucky’s Mr. Basketball in 1971.

Shelburne, whose given name is John David, is one of the rising stars of country music and will be in town Saturday to help the Anderson County High School basketball teams tip off the basketball season with the 23rd annual Cat Madness celebration.
