Shenandoah Feels the Love in New Miranda Lambert Tune
After listening to Miranda Lambert's new tune, "Another Sunday In The South," SHENANDOAH band members, past and present, are feeling the love from one of the biggest stars in Country music.
"Every generation of country artists have people who inspired them to do what they do," says Lambert. "At the heart of my country inspiration is Shenandoah. They created a pure sound that takes you back home everytime. And most of us are still trying to replicate that sound today!"
"I remember when Miranda was just getting started she opened up for us in Roanoke, Virginia," recalls Shenandoah drummer Mike McGuire. "We stood next to each other at the edge of the stage watching another opening act play before we went on. What I remember most about her was how shy she seemed at the time. It's been fun to see her develop into a superstar and for her to think enough of Shenandoah to pay tribute to us in her new song is thrilling and humbling all at the same time."
Lambert's "Another Sunday In The South," gives nod to the group's classic #1 Hit, "Sunday In The South." Former Shenandoah frontman Marty Raybon makes a guest vocal cameo on the new song.
Raybon notes, "First and foremost, I think Miranda Lambert is fandango! The timing of Miranda's new song is great. This might be the wonderful beginning of something that people have been asking me about for the past 17 years. Stay tuned."
Shenandoah originally formed in Muscle Shoals, Alabama in 1985. The GRAMMY® Award-winninggroup scored several #1 Hits throughout the '80s and '90s, including "Sunday In The South," "Two Dozen Roses," "The Church on Cumberland Road" and "If Bubba Can Dance (I Can Too)." Original band members Mike McGuire and Jim Seales remain with the group. In 1997, lead singer Marty Raybon departed the band to pursue other music endeavors.
