Ricky Van Shelton Goes From A Jack To A King On Two For Tuesday [VIDEO]

YouTube

On this “two for Tuesday” is a singer who was one of the hottest country acts in the late 80′s and early 90′s.

 

Ricky Van Shelton mixed a nice flow of country-pop sounds in his songs, but stiill kept the traditional feel. He would also throw that honky tonk mix as well, which I liked.

He moved to Nashville in the mid 80′s and worked the club circuit. In 1986 he signed a deal with CBS Records and in 1987 his first album “Wild-Eyed Dream” went all the way to Number One.

Shelton’s next album in 1988, “Loving Proof” also topped the charts. He had three Number One songs off that album and two of them are my favorites by him.

Check out “I’ll Leave This World Loving You” and a cover of a song originally done by Ned Miller called “From A Jack To A King.
