Rolling Stone Country exclusively premiered a first listen to “If Only” with Joseph Hudak writing, “Singer Marty Raybon kicks things off, reminiscing about sipping iced tea and wishing ‘this old world wouldn’t spin so fast.’ McBryde comes in with lines about main street and big dreams, offering a little grit to complement Raybon’ssmooth vocals.” McBrydeshared, “‘Would you like to sing with Shenandoah on their new record?’ It didn’t even take a whole second for me to say yes. I’m a true fan of the band and Mr. Raybon’s bluegrass stuff, too. I jumped at the chance to sing with him. I love this song… the message is so relevant and needed right now.”
Written by Lori McKenna, Phil Barton and Jaron Boyer, “If Only” follows “I’d Take Another One of Those” with Zac Brown Band and “Every Time I Look At You”with Lady A.

GRAMMY®, CMA and ACM-winning hitmakers Shenandoah, fueled by Marty Raybon’s distinctive vocals and the band’s skilled musicianship, are celebrated for delivering such hits as “Two Dozen Roses”, “Church on Cumberland Road” and “Next to You, Next to Me” as well as such achingly beautiful classics as “I Want to be Loved Like That” and the GRAMMY® winning “Somewhere in the Vicinity of the Heart” duet with Alison Krauss. Today that legacy continues as original members Marty Raybon and Mike McGuire launch a new chapter in Shenandoah’s storied career with Every Road, available everywhere Nov. 13, 2020. Raybon and McGuire formed Shenandoah in 1984 in Muscle Shoals, Alabama with bassist Ralph Ezell, keyboardist Stan Thorn and guitarist Jim Seales. Shenandoah inked a deal with Columbia Records and began establishing a national fan base with their self-titled debut in 1987. However, it was the band’s sophomore effort, The Road Not Taken, that spawned their first top ten hits—“She Doesn’t Cry Anymore” and “Mama Knows.” Shenandoah followed with three consecutive No. 1 hits—“Church on Cumberland Road,” “Sunday in the South” and “Two Dozen Roses.” “The Church on Cumberland Road” spent two weeks at the top of the chart and made country music history as it marked the first time that a country band’s first No. 1 single spent more than one week at the summit. It also helped propel sales of the album to more than half a million units thus giving Shenandoah their first gold album. Shenandoah became known for delivering songs that celebrated the importance of faith and family while reveling in the joys of small town life. “Next to You, Next to Me” topped the charts for three weeks and “Somewhere in the Vicinity of the Heart,” a beautiful duet with Alison Krauss, won a Country Music Association Award for Vocal Event of the year and a GRAMMY® for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. Shenandoah also won the Academy of Country Music’s Vocal Group of the Year in 1991.
