Closing the ’70s in 1979 with his first No. 1 hit, “Last Cheater’s Waltz,” Sheppard opened the ’80s with a remarkable run of No. 1 hits in two years and was also named “Best New Male Artist” by Cashbox.
His other No.1 hits include “Slow Burn,” “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,” “Faking Love” and “Finally.”
Four album projects and more hits followed on a second wave of gold. Number one singles with “Fooled Around And Fell In Love,” “One For The Money” and “Strong Heart” helped him remain one of the most in-demand artists in country music — both in concert and on record.
Sheppard served as national spokesperson for the Folger’s NASCAR racing team for eight seasons, performing for six years on the popular “Folger’s Wakin’ Up Country Tour” which headlined across America.
Throughout the course of his career Sheppard has consistently worked for good causes close to his heart: Childhelp USA, the St. Jude Children’s Hospital, United Way, Cerebral Palsy and the Alzheimer’s Association, among other organizations have all been made richer for the success of one man and his dream to make music.
At a point in his career when most artists are resting on their accomplishments, Sheppard continues to work on new material and collaborative projects with other known artists.
The Carson Valley Inn (carsonvalleyinn.com) is located on U.S. Highway 395 in Minden, Nev. near the start of State Highway 88.
