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 many songs such as “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” and “Faking Love.”

“Finally” and “I Loved ‘Em Every One,” introduced Sheppard to a massive new world of fans when both made major impact on the Pop Top 40 Charts. “Make My Day,” a duet with Clint Eastwood featured in the movie “Sudden Impact” again crossed Sheppard over to pop chart recognition.

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 he has consistently worked for 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 artists.
