Giddy Up and Celebrate with the Legends
Every year, Country Music Hall of Famers, The Oak Ridge Boys, hit the snowy roads of America to bring holiday favorites and their beloved classic country hits to fans everywhere.
Formed way back in the mid 60s as a vocal quartet, the Oak Ridge boys have been going strong for over 50 years! Their gospel-tinged country songs have touched the hearts of millions of fans across the world.
The Oak Ridge Boys have sold 41 million records during their long career. The group has had 12 gold, three platinum, and one double platinum album. They’ve won Grammy Awards, Country Music Association Awards and GMA Dove Awards.
Their most famous song, “Elvira,” peaked at number one on the country charts in 1981. The doo-wop inspired track “Bobbie Sue” became another huge crossover hit the same year.
All together, the band has had 30 top ten hits. During their storied career, the band has recorded with Paul Simon, George Jones, Brenda Lee, Johnny Cash, Roy Rogers, Billy Ray Cyrus, Bill Monroe, Ray Charles and even Shooter Jennings, the son of their old friends Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter.
In 1982, the band released their album, Christmas and would go on to record several more holiday-themed albums that became the genesis for The Down Home Christmas tour. Always a spiritual band, it only made sense for these legends to usher in the joyful season.
