article imageSinger Marty Raybon hints at Shenandoah return

Country mega-star Miranda Lambert pays tribute to the country group Shenandoah in her new song "Another Sunday in the South."
The band members, past and present, are feeling the love from one of country's brightest female vocalists.
"Every generation of country artists have people who inspired them to do what they do," Lambert remarked in a press statement. "At the heart of my country inspiration is Shenandoah. They created a pure sound that takes you back home every time. And most of us are still trying to replicate that sound today!"
The Grammy-winning group was originally formed in Alabama in 1985. They have several No. 1 hits including "Sunday In The South," "Two Dozen Roses," "The Church on Cumberland Road" and "If Bubba Can Dance (I Can Too)." Original band members Mike McGuire and Jim Seales are still with the band today. Lead singer Marty Raybon departed the group in 1997 to pursue other musical endeavors.
"I remember when Miranda was just getting started she opened up for us in Roanoke, Virginia," recalled Shenandoah drummer Mike McGuire in a press release. "We stood next to each other at the edge of the stage watching another opening act play before we went on. What I remember most about her was how shy she seemed at the time. It's been fun to see her develop into a superstar and for her to think enough of Shenandoah to pay tribute to us in her new song is thrilling and humbling all at the same time."
The country songstress' latest "Another Sunday In The South," pays homage to the group's classic chart-topping single, "Sunday In The South." It features a guest vocal cameo from former Shenandoah front-man Marty Raybon.
Raybon hinted at a possible reunion with the group, by stating in a press release, "First and foremost, I think Miranda Lambert is fandango! The timing of Miranda's new song is great. This might be the wonderful beginning of something that people have been asking me about for the past 17 years. Stay tuned."
