Shenandoah to Embark on 2015 Reloaded With Marty Raybon Tour
Shenandoah are back in business and hitting the road. The legendary group has announced that they will reunite with their original lead singer Marty Raybon for their 2015 Reloaded With Marty Raybon Tour.
"We are so excited to see the reaction so far to having Marty back with us," drummer Mike McGuire says. "Smiles are big, seats are full, and autograph lines are long. It's like country music fans are starved for real country music these days. At least that's what they are telling us. And we are happy to take them back in our time machine!"
Adds Raybon, "The crowds have been unbelievable. Packed and loud. It seems to me that they've missed hearing the music as much as I have. The excitement is right in front of us, and that's what makes us want to make sure they leave entertained and glad they came. It's good to be back with the boys!"
The new tour marks the first time in nearly 18 years that the original group is performing together. Raybon announced he was rejoining the band last year.
“We were not a band that broke up because of dissension,” Raybon explains. “We had our disagreements, as partners do in a business relationship, [but] we were then and remain to be friends. Returning to the band had actually been talked about on several different occasions throughout the years.”
