Luke Combs Joins Shenandoah for ‘Two Dozen Roses’: ‘Complete Honor’

Luke Combs joined Shenandoah for a new version of one of their biggest hits. The father of two is part of a brand-new collaboration of their classic hit, “Two Dozen Roses,” first released in 1989.

“Iconic group. Iconic song,” Combs tweeted when the song was released. “Complete honor to sing on this one, [Shenandoah]! Thank y’all for having me.”

The idea to have Combs join Shenandoah on”Two Dozen Roses” came after lead singer Marty Raybon realized that Combs was performing the song during his concerts

“People would send us videos of him performing the song live and we thought, ‘How cool would it be to have Luke record the song with us?'” Raybon told Billboard.

Shenandoah released their star-studded Every Road album in 2020, which included Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley, Luke Bryan, Ashley McBryde and more. They are currently working on a new record, one that Raybon says will also include some fun collaborations as well.

“I don’t know exactly when the album’s coming out,” Raybon told Everything Nash earlier this year. “We’re working on some more tunes. We have some guests that are gonna come by, and a lot of times when you do stuff like that, it depends on what their schedule will allow. We’ve got about two or three things now that we want to single … We feel like we have the stuff that we could put out so that folks can hear some of the new stuff.”

Although Shenandoah hasn’t released a lot of details about their next record, Raybon does say the project will have a positive message.

“We’ve always tried to relate to the things that have been positive,” Raybon said. “We can sing all the negative, but we just choose not to do that. We don’t want to sing about drinking and cheating and running around and all that other kind of stuff. I’m not any better than anybody else, but as my daddy said, ‘Son, keep your nose clean.’ So that’s where we’re at with it. We just think there’s a lot of good and positive things that can be sung about like ‘Somewhere In the Vicinity of the Heart,’ ‘Moon Over Georgia,’ stuff like that. That’s where we are.”

Combs just made country music history, by scoring both the No. 1 and No. 2 spots on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart. “Love You Anyway” landed at the top spot, while “Fast Car,” a former No. 1 hit for Combs, sat at No. 2.

Combs will kick off his Growin’ Up and Gettin’ Old Tour on March 12 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, playing back-to-back shows in most cities, with Cody Jinks, The Avett Brothers and Haily Whitters among those opening for Combs on Friday nights, and Jordan DavisMitchell Tenpenny, Drew Parker and Colby Acuff opening for Combs for the Saturday night shows.
