NASHVILLE, TENN. (April 1, 2021) – Sammy Sadler teams up with Shenandoah’s Marty Raybon for the music video for Sadler’s fresh take on “The Church On Cumberland Road.” Sandler’s rendition of this song features Raybon, who originally sang it in 1989, and stays true to the original version while infusing it with an exciting new sound. Country Rebel has an exclusive premiere of the video, which clearly demonstrates the passionate and unique style that each artist brings to this classic. Their energy will have anyone watching ready to get up and dance! Watch the video here. 


“Again, ‘The Church On Cumberland Road’ makes another trip around the block. It’s full of excitement and fun with my friend Sammy Sadler. It was an honor to be part of his new project. It is a give ear to, and turn it up,” said Marty Raybon.


“What an honor it is to have my friend Marty Raybon on the record. You can feel the fun and excitement on it. This is real country music with one of Country’s iconic voices” said Sadler.

Sadler’s forthcoming album, 1989, features revitalized covers from that year in country music along with duets from the biggest stars of the era. That year was Sadler’s debut in country music before his career was nearly ended in the infamous “Murder on Music Row” where he was severely injured. This is the first project from Sadler after signing with BFD/Audium Nashville earlier this year. 1989 is now available for pre-order.

In 1989, Sammy Sadler, an acclaimed newcomer to the country music scene, found chart success with a cover of Aaron Neville’s “Tell It Like It Is” on Evergreen Records. His follow up single “You Made It Easy” charted as well, but as he was gearing up to release his debut album, Sadler was wounded in the unfortunate murder of Cash Box magazine chart director Kevin Hughes. It took almost a decade for him to recover and release new music, starting with his 2004 release Hard On A Heart on the Tri Label. The title track charted in the Top 10 on the Texas Music Chart as well as No. 1 in Europe for multiple weeks. Sadler released another album, Heart Shaped Like Texas in 2009 on Audium Records. After Audium transitioned to Koch Records before being sold to E1, he found success with “I’ll Always Have Denver” featuring Steve Wariner and “No Place To Land,” but that was where it ended for Sadler when E1 closed. Since then, he has continued to tour with Doug Stone in 2012 and Ken Mellons and Jeff Carson on the “Taking The Country Back Tour” in 2015. He has had 4 Top 15 records on the Texas Music Chart and was named Male Vocalist for Dallas/Fort Worth in 1993. Sadler returned in 2019 to release a book recounting the famous “Murder on Music Row” and is in the studio working on a new album to be released in 2021. Sammy’s story is far from over, in fact, it’s just begun. For more information, visit or Sammy Sadler’s official Facebook page.
