I'll never forget the 1st time I saw them at the Cow Palace in Fort Collins.  i was an instant fan. Now they are back together.  Shenandoah has announced the return of lead singer Marty Raybon. Following a 17-year absence, Raybon will rejoin the group in October.

In an exclusive story from Rolling Stone Country:

The voice of such classic country hits as "The Church on Cumberland Road," "Next to You Next to Me" and "Somewhere in the Vicinity of the Heart" is back. Marty Raybon is reuniting with Shenandoah, the band he co-founded in 1984 but left after their 1997 tour to travel other musical roads. Raybon tells Rolling Stone Country that getting back together with bandmates Mike McGuire, Stan Munsey and Chris Lucas was a long time coming.
