Kelsea Ballerini Delivers Haunting Rendition of Shenandoah’s “Ghost In This House”

Kelsea Ballerini Delivers Haunting Rendition of Shenandoah’s “Ghost In This House” | Country Music Videos



1990 found country band Shenandoah at the height of their career. Just one year earlier the band topped the country charts with “The Church On Cumberland Road,” “Sunday In The South,” and “Two Dozen Roses.” But, it was their top 10 hit “Ghost In This House” from the group’s third studio album that may be the most gripping tune of Shenandoah’s 30-year history. 

“Ghost In This House” topped out at No.5 on the Billboard Country Charts, but earned the group a Grammy nomination and a throng of new fans. 

Bluegrass queen Alison Krauss, who won a Grammy for a collaboration with Shenandoah lead singer Marty Raybon, recorded “Ghost In This House” on her 1999 album Forget About It, introducing a new generation of fans to the Shenandoah classic.

During a recent stop at the Grand Ole Opry, country newcomer Kelsea Ballerini delivered her take on the tune, a song she’d never performed until that night.

“This one caught my heart a long time ago, and this is the first time I’ve ever sung it,” Ballerini told the Opry audience. “If you mess up Alison Krauss you’re voted off the island. So hopefully I do it justice.”

We think you’ll agree that Ballerini delivered and we’re sure she made Alison Krauss and the guys of Shenandoah proud. Listen below and let us know what you think.
