Led by frontman Marty Raybon and co-founding member Mike McGuire, Shenandoah’s timeless catalog of hits solidified the group as a country music mainstay over the past 30 years.

Foundry Records released several instant-grat tracks from the 10-song album, produced by industry veteran Buddy Cannon, starting with the lead single “I’d Take Another One of Those” with Zac Brown Band. Shenandoah debuted the second track, “Every Time I Look At You” with Lady A, on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” and released a music video for the collaboration, which is airing now on CMT Music. Rolling Stone Country exclusively premiered a first listen to the next song, “If Only” with Ashley McBryde, while followed with a first listen to “Then A Girl Walks In” with Blake Shelton

The Tennessean also shared a first listen to the “reflective mid-tempo” title track with Dierks Bentley, written by Brett Beavers, Jamie Moore and Kevin Griffin, as well as the “feel-good country throwback,” “Make It Til Summertime” with Luke Bryan, written by Raybon, McGuire and Dallas Davidson. The Tennessean’s Matthew Leimkuehler remarked, “1990s country music hitmaking collides with modern Nashville stars on Every Road.”

SiriusXM Prime Country, Channel 58 is celebrating the release of Every Road with a virtual album release party, hosted by Mike Terry, featuring Rayon and McGuire. The special, which started airing at 7 a.m. CT today, continues through the weekend.

Reviewers are applauding the collaborations on Every Road:

“Talk about a collab! The laid-back and sweet love song showcases Raybon’s trademark vocals, paired perfectly with Shelton’s voice.”
– Tomás Mier, People

“Sweetly nostalgic ballad…McBryde comes in with lines about main street and big dreams, offering a little grit to complement Raybon’s smooth vocals. ‘If Only’ may preach a mythical ‘better days’-type message, but McBryde’s honesty helps sell it.”
– Joseph Hudak, Rolling Stone Country

“‘Every Time I Look at You’ brings out all the qualities that fans of ’80s and ’90s country long for, from a sentimental story line to a ‘real band’ feel in the arrangement, not to mention the sterling tenor of Shenandoah’s lead singer, Marty Raybon.”
– Craig Shelburne, CMT

“With the help of Shelton, Luke Bryan, Ashley McBryde, Dierks Bentley, Lady A, Zac Brown Band, Carly Pearce, Cody Johnson, and Brad Paisley, Shenandoah invites a new generation of country music fans into their traditionalist soundscape.”  
– Madeline Crone, American Songwriter

“On paper, it’s a thank you from Nashville for such influential Shenandoah hits as ‘Next to You, Next to Me,’ ‘The Church on Cumberland Road,’ ‘Sunday in the South’ and ‘Two Dozen Roses.’
– Bobby Moore, Wide Open Country

“Shenandoah has a ton of killer collaborations on their upcoming album Every Road (November 13) such as Carly Pearce, Cody Johnson, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley and…Ashley McBryde. That bring us to a new song they dropped today with Ashley, ‘If Only’ (written by Lori McKenna, Phil Barton and Jaron Boyer). It’s a damn good country ballad.”
– Steve Gazibara, Whiskey Riff

“It’s a slice of down-home, harmony-laden nostalgia that reaches back toward a simpler past, wondering why things can’t always be that easy. In gentle, easy-going harmony, the three singers reminisce about memories filled with sweet tea, family and simple joys, back when the world seemed to spin a little slower.”
– Carena Liptak, ABC News Radio

“The warm, nostalgic lyric simply glows with simple beauty and truth. The rippling production, full group harmonies and lilting atmosphere are all hallmarks here. Lovely listening.”
– Robert K. Oermann, MusicRow

“The collaborating artists themselves grew up listening to Shenandoah. Partnering with the younger country stars is the perfect way to bring the traditional country music/lyrics/sound to listeners in a meaningful way that can truly be appreciated.”
– Bethany Bowman, The Tennessee Star

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.
