Shenandoah gets "Reloaded"
Monday, February 5, 2018
– Shenandoah will get "Reloaded" with an album of live hits and three songs, due out March 16 on BMG.
The hits were recorded on tour last year, while the three new songs were produced by Rascal Flatts'Jay DeMarcus.
"We had always wanted to capture our show live," Raybon told Billboard. "I think it's a way of getting a little more of an insight into the artist, what they are all about, and what their show consists of. I think it's a great way to advertise what you do so that people will come out to see you."
Songs on the CD are:
1. Next To You, Next To Me (LIVE)
2. If Bubba Can Dance, I Can Too (LIVE)
3. The Moon Over Georgia (LIVE)
4. Mama Knows (LIVE)
5. Sunday In The South (LIVE)
6. I Want To Be Loved Like That (LIVE)
7. Ghost In The House (LIVE)
8. Two Dozen Roses (LIVE)
9. The Church On Cumberland Road (LIVE)
11. That's Where I Grew Up
12. Little Bit of Livin

CD reviews for Shenandoah
Now and Then
Their latest album starts with the foot-stomping "All Over But the Shouting" - which should hit the charts for them - and ends with one of the best duet hits of all time, "Somewhere In the Vicinity of the Heart" (with Alison Krauss). Fitting bookends for yet another best buy from the group who were once Diamond Rio (before the current Diamond Rio was born). Five of the 14 cuts are new. The other new cuts that may become standards are the ballads "Deeper Than That" and "I Will. Know You. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Lambert refuses to rest on laurels
Watching this stop on Miranda Lambert's "Livin' Like Hippies Tour," one is struck by just how many great songs the country singer/songwriter already has in her repertoire. With most artists, it's relatively easy to guess which song a performer will choose to close a show. But Lambert has so many winners to pick from, many... »»»
Concert Review: DBT rocks on
Drive-By Truckers still sometimes get miscategorized as alt.-country, but who's kidding whom? With three electric guitarists upfront exchanging hard rock licks all night, this is a blistering Southern rock band.
Hitting the stage just before 10, the band played a satisfying 2-hour-plus set. At 11:40, Patterson Hood announced the band would be... »»»

American Folk soundtrack

Mary Gauthier has built her career on honest, sometimes brutally and achingly self-confessional songs. This is the first time that she has focused on experiences other than her own, and it could become not only the strongest album of her career but, in its own way, a landmark album. »»»
Matt Hectorne's new album - his third solo effort - offers another example of the rewards that can come through the joy of discovery. While Hectorne makes no attempt to bend the boundaries as far as a patented Americana sound is concerned, the success he achieves here is the result of him doing quite the opposite, that is, sounding like a revered veteran who mastered the form quite quickly in his career. »»»
LANCO's "Greatest Love Story" is a radio single saturated in undeniable warmth and sweetness. But then, the attitude in "We Do" reeks of Florida Georgia Line and the chorus to "Singin' at The Stars" also brings country music's most annoying duo to mind. LANCO is a new act, and the jury's still on just which direction this five-piece will go. »»»
