A Grammy-award-winning country band will be taking the stage a McHale Performing Arts Center Sunday.
Shenandoah, a group that got its start in 1984, has earned various awards including a Country Music Association award and TNN and ACM group of the year. It has had 13 number one songs, three gold albums and various chart hits.
Some of the band's songs include "The Church on Cumberland Road," "Mama Knows," "I Want To Be Loved Like That," "Sunday in the South," "Two Dozen Roses" and "Next to You, Next to Me."
The country super group is being brought to Logansport by the Logansport Performing Arts Council.
Suanne Schwering, an officer with the Performing Arts Council, said though she has never seen the band, said she is looking forward to the music.
“I know they have a lot of popular music and have won awards,” Schwering said. “It’s a country band and we have a lot of country fans in the area — we hope they come.”
Teri Ann Dibble, president of the council, said although she has not heard the group's music, she is also excited. Dibble said she is not a big country music fan, but she has heard great things about Shenandoah.
“I’ve had several people say to me they like Shenandoah and are excited,” Dibble said.
Schwering said she will be in the front row at the show.
“I am looking forward to it,” Schwering said. “I have never seen a poor show up there. We’ve had two excellent shows and are hoping to have two more.”
Shenandoah, a group that has moved from CBS records to RCA records and finally Capital Records, earned a Grammy for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals with “Somewhere in the Vicinity of the Heart,” a duet with Alison Krauss.
