Anyone who has been listening to The Oak Ridge Boys for the last 40 years, but never had the opportunity to attend a live concert, can do that now. And, they can do it without even getting up out of that comfortable over-stuffed chair in their living room. The Oaks will be releasing their first live album on April 15. I listened to the new album today, and I decided that if anyone ever told me I could only own one CD, this would be the one.
The album is more than just music. As you would expect, it is filled The Oak Ridge Boys very recognizable sound, great four-part harmony and upbeat songs. In addition to all that, you also get their personality, applause and cheering from their audience, and a lot more than you hear in a studio recording. It isn’t hard to understand why they have earned Grammy, Dove, CMA and ACM awards, or why they have given us many Number One hits throughout the years. Music lovers will experience that excitement on April 15th when their first live album Boys Night Out is released on Cleopatra Records.
“Like everyone else in the group,” adds bass singer extraordinaire, Richard Sterban, “I was a fan of the Oaks before I became a member. I’m still a fan of the group today. Being in The Oak Ridge Boys is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream.”
William Lee Golden, Richard Sterban, Duane Allen and Joe Bonsall have given us music that just doesn’t get old. You don’t get tired of it. You don’t wish it would go away. The music that has been on the more than 40 million albums this group has sold, is going to be with us for a long time. It’s very obvious by now, that The Oak Ridge Boys are not a passing fad. Every song on the CD will bring back memories.
