T.G. Sheppard Breaks his Own Record with Top Single “Slow Burn”

American country music singer-songwriter T.G. Sheppard had a total of 14 No. 1 hits on the country music chart. Between 1980 and 1982 is the period that probably highlighted his career. During these years, the singer scored most of his No. 1 hits. In particular, Sheppard consecutively released eight records that all became chart-topper hits. In his subsequent release though, the singer seemed to have a sudden take off from topping the chart. His single “Without You” did not only reach No. 1 but also missed the Top 10. It ultimately settled at No. 12 but Sheppard was also quick in regaining his reign atop the chart. In 1983, the same year he released “Without You,” Sheppard earned his 13th No. 1 and subsequently breaking his 8 consecutive No. 1 record. Thanks to his ‘redemptive’ single “Slow Burn.”

His 13th No. 1 Song, “Slow Burn”

“Slow Burn” is a song that Tommy Rocco and Charlie Black penned. In September 1983, T.G. Sheppard recorded his cover of the song which brought him back to the spotlight. His version was released as the first single and title track of his album of the same name. Reaching the chart summit, the song gave Sheppard his 13th No. 1 hit on the country music chart. “Slow Burn” enjoyed the top position for one chart and stayed on the chart’s Top 40 for 14 weeks. The song was also Sheppard’s second to the last chart-topper hit.

“Slow Burn” is about a long-lasting love affair but likewise exudes profound emotion. It was one of the singer’s 10 No. 1 songs with Warner Bros. Records. Early this year, Sheppard performed the song live at Stampede Houston in Houston, Texas.
