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
"Noise" is the band's new single.

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: Carlile takes her chances on feeling "Blue"
During a rare moment sitting at the piano and appropriately dressed in blue, Brandi Carlile paraphrased a memorable Joni Mitchell quote. Basically, it went that, if you listen to Joni Mitchell music and only picture Mitchell - but not yourself - something is wrong. While Carlile, who performed Mitchell's "Blue" album in its entirety for... »»»
Concert Review: The Head and the Heart go beyond the nah nahs
"Nah nah," "la la" and "Wee oh" populated a number of songs from The Head and the Heart.
Yes, the Seattle-based band does pen a good amount of sing-along songs that were clearly designed that way. And while that style can certainly engage and energize a crowd, there was more to that from the sextet.... »»»
