Country star Marty Raybon has reunited with Shenandoah, the band he co-founded in 1984 and fronted for 13 years.

The Church on Cumberland Road singer is set to record and tour with former bandmates Mike McGuire, Stan Munsey and Chris Lucas.

He tells Rolling Stone, “We were not a band that broke up because of dissension. We had our disagreements, as partners do in a business relationship, (but) we were then and remain to be friends. Returning to the band had actually been talked about on several different occasions throughout the years.

“I’ve always been truly proud of what we accomplished… the songs we recorded, the way they moved people. For years, all of us have heard what those tunes, those stories, meant to folks. We feel there is more to be said. So it’s time to reload and fulfil the request of fans who want to see us back together.”

McGuire adds, “Having Marty back is like putting on an old baseball glove that fit your hand perfectly a long time ago. We’re like brothers, so playing all our old hits together again feels natural.”

A reunion tour will begin in October in Alberta, Canada.
