At the age of 18, Paul Sheldrick arrived in Nashville Tennessee with a guitar and a dream. Now at the age of 30, he has played in several venues across the country. Paul can truly say he is living the American Dream.
When Paul first arrived in Music City, he knew no one in town. He quickly acclimated himself and started to learned the industry from some of the iconic inspirations in Country Music. From being backstage at the Grand Ole Opry with legends like Vince Gill and Alan Jackson, Paul knew he had to soak up the knowledge, then get to work.
One of his very first Nashville shows was a 4-hour set at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, which is the legendary music venue across the alley from the Ryman Auditorium. The Nashville newcomer didn’t have much advance notice for his Tootsie’s set – he was asked to play just hours before the set – but he pulled up his bootstraps and made it a performance to remember.
