This cherished gem from 1989 is about to get a makeover.
The Grammy-winning country band, Shenandoah, and Luke Combs came together to create a revamped rendition of Shenandoah’s 1989 hit, “Two Dozen Roses.”
The inspiration for this collaboration sparked when Shenandoah caught wind that Combs had been rocking the classic tune at 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?’” Shenandoah lead singer Marty Raybon told Billboard in a statement.
The exciting duet comes hot on the heels of a June studio snapshot featuring Raybon and Luke, teasing fans about the possible upcoming collaboration.
“Good times in the studio today with @lukecombs. We have some exciting things in the works. Stay tuned,” the band captioned the photo.
According to Raybon, Combs “sang the florist bill off of it. It appears ‘Two Dozen Roses’ is as big as it ever was and having Luke’s vocal on there just proves the timelessness of what folks have felt about this song for years,” as reported by Billboard.
The now RIAA Gold certified track “Two Dozen Roses” originally found its home on Shenandoah’s second album, The Road Not Taken. It quickly secured its No.1 spot on Billboards Country chart, remaining a classic to this day.
