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. Every Road marks the group's 10th studio album, and 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.
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 People.com 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."

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.
