The Oak Ridge Boys are considered one of the greatest groups in Country Music history.
Long before their many hits like 'Elvira' and 'Bobbie Sue', they dominated the world of Gospel Music. Originally known as The Oak Ridge Quartet, they began performing in the early 1940s and Time Magazine dubbed them one of the “top drawing gospel groups in the nation.”
Breaking all barriers, the Oaks brought their Gospel music to the mainstream with a popcountry sounding style. By the late 70s, the group had reached the top of the Gospel Music world. The long-haired, bell-bottom wearing group now known as The Oak Ridge Boys soon branched out to cross-over stardom, dominating both the Country and Pop music scene.
Today, the Oak Ridge Boys continue to wow audiences with their high-energy stage show, performing more than 150 dates a year.
Gospel Music gave the Oaks their roots with a foundation to stand and sing on for more than 50 years and now New Haven Records is proud to unveil its latest addition to The Gospel Legacy Series, The Oak Ridge Boys: The Gospel Sessions.
