Nashville, Tenn. (May 10, 2016) – This past weekend, for the first time in nearly 25 years, legendary country music group Shenandoah returned to the stage of the Grand Ole Opry.

Fronted by Marty Raybon (who recently rejoined the group after a 17 year absence), the legendary country group performed on Friday and Saturday nights, blistering through several of their hit songs including “The Church on the Cumberland Road,” “Two Dozens Roses” and “I Wanna Be Loved Like That.”

The group’s return to the Opry stage is the latest highlight of what has been a very busy year for the boys from Alabama. The band recently performed at the Academy of Country Music’s (ACM) All-Star Jam in Las Vegas and also just released their first-ever Gospel album, Good News Travels Fast.
