Marty Raybon (born December 8, 1959 in Greenville, Alabama) is an American country music artist. He is known primarily for his role as the lead singer of the band Shenandoah, a role which he held from 1985 to 1996. He recorded his first solo album, Marty Raybon, in 1995 on Sparrow Records.[1] After leaving Shenandoah in 1996, he and his brother Tim formed a duo known as the Raybon Brothers, which had crossover success in 1997 with the hit single "Butterfly Kisses."

The Raybon Brothers split up in 1997, and Marty Raybon resumed his career as a solo artist. A second self-titled album was released in 2000, followed by 2003's Full Circle. 2006 saw the release of When the Sand Runs Out, which included the single "Shenandoah Saturday Night", a song whose lyrics referenced the titles of Shenandoah's hit singles.[2]
