RVSHVD is on his way to Stoney’s Rockin’ Country on Friday night, May 24, 2024

RVSHVD (pronounced RA-SHAD) is a twenty six year-old country singer-songwriter hailing from the small town of Willacoochee, Georgia (population
1200). As a teenager he was into hip hop and making beats, but his world turned upside down when he heard “Sweet Thing” by Keith Urban. Soon he discovered the music of Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, George Strait, Alan Jackson, and Brooks & Dunn; all of whom he credits with influencing his love of country music. He immediately found writing songs in the country vein to be more personal and rewarding, saying, “I can be myself in country music, talking about the real things I do and feel without trying to be a persona you need to be successful in hip-hop or other genres.”
With the help of his signature vocal tone and a bare bones home studio, RVSHVD hit the jackpot on his country version of Roddy Ricch’s “Ballin.” The song went viral on Spotify, TikTok, Apple and YouTube amassing over 25M streams and lifting his catalog of songs to over 125M streams. A preview of his recent single, “Shoebox Money,” struck a national conversation racking up 15M plays, 1M likes, and 450K+ shares on Instagram Reels alone, a testament to his unique position in the country music lexicon.

Gifted and prolific, RVSHVD’s songs cover a wide variety of topics, from his love of the gentle, inclusive urban life in “Small Town Talk,” to battling anxiety in “Deal With the Devil (ft. Danny Worsnop).” Along the way, RVSHVD has earned praise from Billboard who named him Country Rookie of the Month, applauding that he “…has carefully curated his own genre-bending sound.” CMT has dubbed him as one of their “Artist To Watch 2024.”

Live, RVSHVD has played Nissan Stadium during CMA Fest, debuted at the Grand Ole Opry and done dates with Dwight Yoakam. He’s set to play Stagecoach Festival, Golden Sky Festival, and CMA Fest again this year. RVSHVD will be releasing an EP The Intro and his debut full length album later this year.

RVSHVD is signed to The Penthouse South / Sumerian Records label, EMPIRE for publishing and CAA for touring.
