T.G. Sheppard has always had a knack of being ‘at the right place at the right time’ in Country Music. He was the singular artist who put a massive amount of gold in the teeth of the country music industry’s biggest ‘sales bite’ in history—during the ‘Golden Era’ of the late ‘70’s and early ‘80’s as the success of ‘Urban Cowboy’ helped usher in a new wave of country. T.G. opened the ‘80’s with a remarkable run of a dozen #1’s hits that would forever secure his place in industry history. He brought romance—and yes, sex appeal—to country music at a time when young men in hats were first saddling up to monopolize the range on the nation’s airwaves. His hits include: “Last Cheater’s Waltz,” “Only One You,” “Party Time,” “Do You Wanna Go To Heaven,” “I Feel Like Loving You Again,” “I Loved ‘Em Every One,” “Finally,” “War Is Hell On The Homefront Too,” and “Faking Love.” “Finally” and “I Loved ‘Em Every One,” introduced T.G. to a massive new world of fans when both made major impact on the Pop Top 40 Charts.
