Fueled by Marty Raybon’s distinctive vocals and the band’s skilled musicianship, Shenandoah became well known 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 Kraus. Shenandoah has recorded nine studio albums (3 certified gold) and placed 26 singles on Billboard’s Hot Country songs chart, including thirteen number One hits. Other audience favorites include:“Sunday in the South”, “Mama Knows”, “Rock My Baby”, and “Moon Over Georgia”.

The iconic song has been showcased in feature films such as “Happy Gilmore,” “Employee of the Month,” “Zookeeper, and “Wildhogs”.
