Shenandoah have teamed up with Luke Combs for a remake of “Two Dozen Roses,” a 1988 hit from the Grammy-winning country band.
The song, written by Mac McAnally and Robert Byrne and produced by Noah Gordon, was recorded at Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals.
The duet begins with Shenandoah’s Marty Raybon singing the opening verse: “I brought flowers to your door last night / I done you wrong, and I wanna make it right / You say I’m not welcome here / I know it oughta be perfectly clear / But I can’t help but wonder what it might be like.”
Combs joins in the second verse, singing, “Oh, I must’ve been a fool back then / To lose somethin’ that you can’t have again / I’ve done all that I know to do / And second-guess my every move / I can’t help but wonder how it might have been.”
“If I could cry a little harder / And get a little less sleep at night / If I had two dozen roses / Would it change your mind?” the duo sing in the final chorus, seeking forgiveness from an ex.
“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 in a statement.
“He sang the florist bill off of it,” he added. “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.”
“Two Dozen Roses” was originally on Shenandoah’s second album, The Road Not Taken, which arrived in 1988.
