Enjoy two great performances in one night with Shenandoah and Johnny Lee live in Branson; an Up Close and Personal show, this concert will be one that all country music lovers will not want to miss out on.
With the duo, Shenandoah's faith-based music and Johnny Lee's American country music, these performers will create a show that will have all-ages dancing and singing along. Listen along to hits such as Shenandoah's “Church on Cumberland Road” and Lee's “Lookin' For Love” as well as getting some personal insight to the different songs.
Shenandoah brings deep, gospel music to the stage that is appropriate for all ages and especially appealing to those of faith. With hits such as, “Two Dozen Roses” and “Next to You, Next to Me”, this duo comprised of Marty Raybon and Mike McGuire is sure to impress.
The duo formed in 1984 in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. When McGuire invited producer Robert Byrne to see the band, they recorded a demo and pitched to Columbia Records. After being signed to this iconic label, the band debuted their self-titled album in 1987. It wasn't until their next album, however, that they gained momentum. This album, The Road Not Taken, spawned their first top ten hits with “She Doesn't Cry Anymore” and “Mama Knows”. After that, they had three consecutive No. 1 hits, “Church on Cumberland Road”, “Sunday in the South” and “Two Dozen Roses”.
