We love receiving press releases about our favorite country music stars. The Oak Ridge Boys are going to be heading out for their 2015 Christmas Night Out Tour, beginning Nov. 17, in Branson, Mo. These four men put on one of the best shows you will ever see. If you are in or near one of the towns where they have shows scheduled, we know you are going to want to get your ticket early. If you aren’t close to where they will be doing this great Christmas show, it just might be time to plan a road trip. It looks like Nashville, the last show on the schedule, and Newport News, Va., right around Thanksgiving, are the closest two to me. Just might be possible to get out there and take one of these shows in this year. Below is the press release we received, with all the information you need about their upcoming Christmas show.
Grammy Award-winning music legends, The Oak Ridge Boys, will once again celebrate the Christmas season with timeless hits and holiday classics on their 26th Annual Christmas Night Out Tour, coming to a city near you. The almost two-hour holiday show transports concertgoers into Winter Wonderland with fan-favorite hits and Christmas tunes new and old, beautiful sets, falling snow—and even a special visit from Santa Claus himself.
“There is nothing quite like an Oak Ridge Boys Christmas Show. This tour has become an Oak Ridge Boys tradition and is a tremendous experience for the entire family. With a revamped stage and a fresh approach, this year’s show will be a dynamic mix of music representing every aspect of Christmas from presents and snow, to romance and Santa Claus, on to the real meaning of the season celebrating the birth of Jesus,” said The Oak Ridge Boys’ Joe Bonsall.
Each year The Oak Ridge Boys’ Christmas tour plays to packed houses across America. The 2015 Christmas Night Out Tour will take the group to more than two-dozen cities in nineteen states, from the East to West Coast, mid-November through December 23.
The group—Richard Sterban, Duane Allen, William Lee Golden and Joe Bonsall—have earned prestigious membership in the Country Music Hall of Fame (2015 Inductees) and Grand Ole Opry, among other designations. Known worldwide as one of recording history’s most extraordinary musical successes, they have charted single after single and album after album, celebrating over 41 million records sold, two double-platinum albums, and more than 30 Top 10 hits, including No. 1 chart-toppers “Elvira,” “Bobbie Sue,” “Thank God For Kids,” “American Made,” among dozens more.
A mixture of traditional and contemporary songs—including religious, romantic, and fun holiday tunes—makes up the set list, which includes songs from the Oaks’ six bestselling Christmas CDs.
Bonsall added, “Folks can expect to hear old favorites like ‘White Christmas’ and ‘Jingle Bells’ mixed with some very poignant newer songs like ‘Getting Ready for A Baby’ and ‘Mary Did You Know.’ A highlight of the evening is the much-loved ‘rocking chair’ segment where each BOY rocks by the fireplace and shares personal thoughts about Christmas. So we hope you’ll come out and see us… and Merry Christmas!”
