Shenandoah to Embark on 30th Anniversary Tour
Shenandoah will reach 30 years as a band in 2017, and they're celebrating with an anniversary tour.
The country legends released their debut album in 1987 and found much success in the form of several No. 1 songs, including "The Church on Cumberland Road," "Sunday in the South," "Two Dozen Roses," "Next to You, Next to Me" and "If Bubba Can Dance (I Can Too)."
The band will bring many of these hits — and more — to fans in the new year. Shenandoah's anniversary tour kicks off on Jan. 22 in Annapolis, Md., and runs through Aug. 4, with additional dates to be added in the coming weeks.
"After 29 years in the music business, we find ourselves more determined than ever before," says lead singer Marty Raybon in a press release. "The past helps us to realize where we've been and sets our vision to where we want to be. Our mission in 2017, with new music, is to expand our fanbase while continuing to enjoy the performances and making our 30th year the best ever."
