When it comes to world-class entertainers, The Oak Ridge Boys are at the top of the list. With their new album "17th Avenue Revival," which debuted Friday, March 16, 2018, this group of top-notch artists have taken this release to a whole new level. The album was created with producer, Dave Cobb, at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A on Music Row. The album is a mix of modern and retro vibes with no vocal stacking and minimal over dubs.
Not only are The Oak Ridge Boys releasing their new album on CD and on all digital formats, they have also decided to release it on Vinyl, Cassette, and are considering releasing it on the Cylinder.
For the Oak Ridge Boys, their fans are their family. They once stopped a show during a Christmas tour when a fan showed signs of trouble and needed immediate medical attention. Joe Bonsall, Richard Sterban, William Lee Golden, and Duane Allen paused the show, silenced the room, and began to pray for their fan in need, singing "Amazing Grace" as she was taken by ambulance.
