Late ’80s hit makers Shenandoah are one of the first country acts planning to return to the stage, announcing new dates for their Every Road Tour.
Beginning February 19 in Houston, Texas, the band behind songs like “Church on Cumberland Road,” “Sunday In the South” and more will pick up where they left off in early 2020, with more than 35 dates scheduled through October. Citing select markets which are opening up with “strict, safe social distancing measures,” front man Marty Raybon says he and the group are ready to roll.
“It has been way too long. It’s been a ‘hard day’s night’ to quote the Beatles, but it’s time to get on the bus, run the highway and listen to the crowd,” he says. “Excitement is not a big enough word for the way the Shenandoah camp feels. We’re ready to get back to the Big E – entertainment. Y’all come out and capture some of this cooped up energy.”
Shenandoah has plans to perform all across the country, starting in the South with shows in Texas, Florida, Tennessee and Alabama, before expanding their trek to the West Coast and upper Midwest. As of now, the run will concluded back in Texas at the Live Oak County Fair Grounds & Coliseum in George West on October 30, but the band says more dates are expected to be booked. Shenandoah released their 10th album, Every Road, in November of 2020, featuring duets with superstars like Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley and more. Covid-19 vaccines are currently rolling out across the U.S., with more than 42 million American’s vaccinated so far.
