This picture was taken at the Tennessee Valley Fair in Knoxville. Can’t really see Richard very well, he was hiding off on the right. But there’s Joe, Duane and William Lee, singing to a very large group of fair visitors. I don’t know if any of you realize it, but The Oak Ridge Boys have won just about every award the music world has to give, and they have been doing it for more than three decades. Honors they can push over to their win column include Grammy Awards, Country Music Association, Academy of Country Music, Dove Awards, Billboard/Wembly Festival (United Kingdom), Billboard, Record World, Cash Box, Kountry Korrall Magazine (Sweden), Music City News Fair Awards, Juke Box Operators of America…. and the list goes on.
The photo on the right is from the Crook & Chase show, which premiered on Jan. 17, 2008. Now, that’s a good-looking group. I don’t think Garth Brooks has changed at all since he started in country music sometime in the late 80’s.
Have a great weekend everyone. Talk to you soon.
