Country band Shenandoah, known for ’90s hits “The Church on Cumberland Road” and “Next To You Next to Me,” is getting nostalgic in their latest single, “That’s Where I Grew Up,” featured on their first new album in over 20 years, Reloaded.
With three new songs produced by Rascal Flatt’s Jay DeMarcus, including “That’s Where I Grew Up,” Reloaded contains nine live re-recording of the band’s most iconic hits.
“‘That’s Where I Grew Up’ is the kind of song that speaks to a multitude of people,” Marty Raybon tells One Country. “The story line in the three scenarios of the song can be found in life. Even though the scenarios may differ, you can still find yourself in it.”
The new tune, written by Neil Thrasher, Ashley Gorley, Kelley Lovelace, is the follow up to the album’s lead track, “Noise” and has the band singing about the experiences, good or bad, in life that make you to grow up.
“See I gained a little on father time / That summer my grandaddy died / The first time I saw mama cry / Man that sure was tough / Felt like I’d put on a few years / Watching daddy wipe her tears / In my little coat and tie / Standing in the cemetery mud / That’s where I grew up.” they sing in the wistful tune.
You can catch the band currently on the road for their 30th Anniversary tour.
