People.com exclusively premiered a first listen to “Then A Girl Walks In” with Tomás Mier writing, “The laid-back and sweet love song showcases Raybon’s trademark vocals, paired perfectly with Shelton’s voice.” MusicRow’s Robert K. Oermann remarked, “Now comes a collaboration with the mighty Blake. He and band’s Marty Raybon are a very hearty vocal match for one another. It doesn’t hurt that the song is as warm and comfy as this one is.”
Frontman Marty Raybon shared, “Blake Shelton is truly a big piece of this new record. His vocals are as solid as a slab of concrete.” Co-founding member Mike McGuire added, “We knew Blake must be a Shenandoah fan when he picked one of our songs for the past four seasons in a row on ‘The Voice’ for his artists to sing, but we never dreamed we’d have the opportunity to actually do a duet with him personally. What a blessing!”
Every Road marked Shenandoah’s 10th studio album, and their first album of all-new music since 1994, after notching 13 No. 1 hits and charting 26 singles on Billboard country charts throughout their career. In support of the new album, Shenandoah is bringing The Every Road Tour to venues in select markets with strict, safe social distancing measures. The group will perform hits from their timeless catalog like “Church on Cumberland Road,” “Sunday in the South” and “Two Dozen Roses” as well as new material from Every Road.

Shenandoah recently performed during The DISTRICT, Inc. and Metro Historical Commission Foundation’s 2nd Ave Strong virtual benefit concert at the Wildhorse Saloon. The event raised money for the restoration and preservation of the vitally important 2nd Avenue historic district, severely damaged by last year’s Christmas Day bombing. Shenandoah’s set list included a performance of “I Want to Be Loved Like That” with special guest Gyth Rigdon who performed the song on the 16th season of “The Voice” as a member of team Blake.

GRAMMY®, CMA and ACM-winning hitmakers Shenandoah, fueled by Marty Raybon’s distinctive vocals and the band’s skilled musicianship, are celebrated for delivering such hits as “Two Dozen Roses”, “Church on Cumberland Road” and “Next to You, Next to Me” as well as such achingly beautiful classics as “I Want to be Loved Like That” and the GRAMMY® winning “Somewhere in the Vicinity of the Heart” duet with Alison Krauss. Today that legacy continues as original members Marty Raybon and Mike McGuire launch a new chapter in Shenandoah’s storied career with their new record Every Road. Raybon and McGuire formed Shenandoah in 1984 in Muscle Shoals, Alabama with bassist Ralph Ezell, keyboardist Stan Thorn and guitarist Jim Seales. Shenandoah inked a deal with Columbia Records and began establishing a national fan base with their self-titled debut in 1987. However, it was the band’s sophomore effort, The Road Not Taken, that spawned their first top ten hits—“She Doesn’t Cry Anymore” and “Mama Knows.” Shenandoah followed with three consecutive No. 1 hits—“Church on Cumberland Road,” “Sunday in the South” and “Two Dozen Roses.” “The Church on Cumberland Road” spent two weeks at the top of the chart and made country music history as it marked the first time that a country band’s first No. 1 single spent more than one week at the summit. It also helped propel sales of the album to more than half a million units thus giving Shenandoah their first gold album. Shenandoah became known for delivering songs that celebrated the importance of faith and family while reveling in the joys of small town life. “Next to You, Next to Me” topped the charts for three weeks and “Somewhere in the Vicinity of the Heart,” a beautiful duet with Alison Krauss, won a Country Music Association Award for Vocal Event of the year and a GRAMMY® for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. Shenandoah also won the Academy of Country Music’s Vocal Group of the Year in 1991.
