Shenandoah Band
On The Acoustic

Welcome to this Shenandoah Band page where to date I have 5 Shenandoah acoustic demos, free chord sheets and purchase options for full lessons.

I'll be adding to this list over the next several months as this group has many awesome songs for the acoustic guitar player.

Shenandoah Band Hit Songs

1. Church On Cumberland Road --- Chords - - Cart

This song for the Shenandoah band Church On Cumberland Road, was their first #1 hit when it was released back in 1989. Apparently, when Rascal Flatts was forming as a group, this was the song they sang to work on their harmonies.

2. Ghost In This House --- Chords - - Cart

Ghost In This House is the second single from the bands 1990 album "Extra Mile". The song peaked at #5 in the US and had a music video released to accompany the song. Lead singer Marty Raybon was the only band member to appear in the video.

3. See If I Care --- Chords - - Cart

This song See If I Care came from the same album as Church On Cumberland Road and was the 5th single from the album. This song peaked at #6 in the US and #5 in Canada.

4. Sunday In The South --- Chords - - Cart

That album from 1989 entitled "The Road Not Taken" produced a second #1 hit with the release of this song Sunday In The South. Many people have commented on the original version about the easy going relaxed days and the great Sunday memories this song re-kindles.

5. The Road Not Taken --- Chords - - Cart

The 2nd album from Shenandoah was entitled "The Road Not Taken" and had a track on there of the same name. Strangely this song, The Road Not Taken, and the title of the album, wasn't released as a single. But they had 3 #1 hits from the album.

6. Two Dozen Roses --- Chords - - Cart

As mentioned above, Two Dozen Roses was a #1 hit for the Shenandoah band from "The Road Not Taken" album and was written by Nashville songwriters Robert Byrne and Mac McAnally.

Shenandoah Reunited

It's great to see this band performing once again. I'll add a link near the bottom of the page where you can catch up on their latest tour dates.

Shenandoah was very popular in the late 1980's and early 1990's and charted 26 singles, of which 5 went to #1. Lawsuits over the bands name crippled them financially and by 1992, they were without a contract. by 1997, Shenandoah disbanded.

The group re-emerged without Marty Raybon in 2000 and several members have come and gone from the original Shenandoah lineup.

Marty Talks About Past Problems

As 2014 rolled around, Marty Raybon re-joined the group with the only other original band member drummer mike McGuire. In March 2019 Shenandoah released their new album "Reloaded" and have a new single coming out.

Many people don't know that Marty battled alcohol and it's demons but quit smoking and drinking on the very same day. He spends much of his down time working with prison inmates.
