Oak Ridge Grandkids Shawvers 010How much fun would this be! When winter has really gotten to you, and you just feel like a vacation would be the best thing in the world — how would you like to set sail for a 4-night cruise to the Caribbean with the Oak Ridge Boys! But before you pack those bags – I have a little news for the people here in Northeast Tennessee. We have a chance to see the Oak Ridge Boys on Dec. 8, at Niswonger Performing Arts Center in Greeneville, Tenn. They will make a stop here as part of their “Christmas Times A’Comin Tour.” And I am definitely looking forward to being part of that audience! Now you can pack your bags for February… here is the info I received today about the cruise.

Oak Ridge Grandkids Shawvers 012Set sail with The Oak Ridge Boys for a 4-night voyage to the Caribbean from February 28 – March 4, 2013.  There’ll be a packed lineup of exclusive activities and special events, including 2 concerts featuring some of the group’s biggest hits, a welcome reception hosted by the Oak Ridge Boys, meet & greet session, 40th anniversary celebration and much more.

Oak Ridge Grandkids Shawvers 011“Sail away with us during the Oaks’ Rally at Sea. Request and hear the songs you want to hear, ask the question you never got to ask, attend the exclusive “fans only” show where you pick the songs and learn things you never knew about the group and each individual member,” says lead singer Duane Allen. “Hear some of the inside secrets on how to make it in the music business from our legendary manager, Jim Halsey. Also, have your photo made with the Oaks on the cruise ship. There’ll even be a very special show featuring the Mighty Oaks Band,” he adds.

Oak Ridge Grandkids Shawvers 020Member Joe Bonsall says the voyage will offer fans an experience of a lifetime. “I really believe this cruise will be the coolest thing we have ever done! We are coming up with new ideas every day on how to make this the greatest Oak Ridge Boys experience EVER for those who sail with us and, of course, there IS the Caribbean!”
