Chevel Shepherd is helping us all remember the power of pedal steel and good stories. With bold sincerity and a sparrow’s natural instincts, Chevel sings modern country music that toes tradition’s best lines.
The 17-year-old New Mexico native first charmed America as the champion of season 15 of The Voice, nurtured by coach Kelly Clarkson. Chevel spent the next year checking off a long list of red-letter firsts, including opening shows for Clarkson, Little Big Town, Brothers Osborne, Lee Brice and more, along with singing the national anthem before the Indianapolis 500. On March 20, 2020, Chevel released two highly-anticipated new songs: the moving “Everybody’s Got a Story,” written by Kacey Musgraves, Shane MacAnally, and Brandy Clark; and “Mama Got the Chair,” a clever call-and-response to George Strait’s iconic “The Chair” penned by Nora Collins, Nick Donley, and The Voice alum Dave Fenley. On May 1, 2020, Chevel released the upbeat anthem "Southern Boy". With additional music slated for release later this year, Chevel plans to return to performing live as soon as it's safe to do so.
