The Oak Ridge Boys - News

Country Music Cruise Muse -A short memoir by Joe Bonsall

The fine folks at Time Life came up with a great idea. What if we take a first class cruise ship… say the Holland America Lines EURODAM and fill it to the brim with country music fans and country music stars of all sorts and then let us all sail around the ocean blue and sing and pick and meet and great and visit beautiful ports of call in The Bahamas and the United States Virgin Islands with food galore and more concerts and events then one could possibly imagine in just seven days. We shall call it… THE COUNTRY MUSIC CRUISE! And so it was… Kind of a FAN FAIR at SEA in my humble opinion!


The Oak Ridge Boys just spent the better part of three nights and four days as a major part of this amazing event. As I write this little memoir we are flying high above the Caribbean Sea with a final destination of San Antonio where we will meet our tour buses and proceed onward for a string of shows in the great state of TEXAS. We left The Cruise in Saint Thomas with still three more days remaining for those wonderful folks who are still onboard. About the time we land in Texas the EURODAM will have pulled up the anchor and set a course for Saint Croix USVI and then back to Half Moon Cay in the Bahamas and on home to Fort Lauderdale.

Some artists like The Gatlin Brothers, John Anderson, Lorrie Morgan, Charlie Pride, Asleep at The Wheel, Bryan White, Brett Kissel, Johnny Lee and The Roys were there for the duration while others shuttled in and out. For example, while The Oaks and Daryl Worley were flying out today Martina McBride and Aaron Tippin were flying in. Country music personality Lorianne Crook was aboard to host most of the events and there were a lot of important press folks onboard as well such as Deborah Evans Price and Vernel Hacket so you WILL be reading and seeing a lot about this on your favorite Country Music outlets and magazines.

A Holiday Note from The Oak Ridge Boys

merrychristmasoaksby Joe Bonsall

Sitting here in my rented room on a very cold and crisp Grand Forks, North Dakota day with just six more shows to do before we get on home to our families, I have been reflecting on how very fortunate and how very blessed we all have been over this past year. We have hit the road hard as usual and just about 95% of our shows have been sell outs, and for this we are very grateful! During 2014, we released BOYS NIGHT OUT … our first ever LIVE album of the BIG HITS, and it has done quite well. We have also completed a new album of HYMNS for Bill Gaither Music, produced by Ben Isaacs and our own Duane Allen, that will release sometime in 2015. It is in post production now, and I think you will LOVE it! Our new relationship with The American Legion and the work they are doing for our returning Veterans has been and will continue to be an honor for The Oak Ridge Boys on into 2015!

Yours truly has completed a new book called “On the Road with The Oak Ridge Boys” for Harvest House Publishing, which will drop on May 1, 2015. Check out the preorder page at Amazon, Barnes & Noble or CBD. It is a fresh new look at the group and a study of how we do what we do. Light hearted, yet poignant … I think you will enjoy this as well.

We are hoping to record a new album of brand new songs to sing in 2015. It is still in the early planning stages. Duane Allen and our godfather, Jim Halsey, are working hard on this!

OAK RIDGE BOYS CELEBRATING 25TH YEAR HOLIDAY TRADITION WITH CHRISTMAS NIGHT OUT TOUR

orbchristmasLegendary Group Launching Concert Series Wrapped with True Meaning of Christmas

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (November 20, 2014) – The legendary Oak Ridge Boys are kicking off the holiday season with the Christmas Night Out Tour, and marking 25 years of one of the longest running Christmas tours in the music industry. This year’s series of concerts will journey across the U.S. with an unforgettable show featuring yuletide classics blended with some of the group’s greatest hits. The creative force and signature sound of the Oaks have become synonymous with Christmas music as the country legends continue to captivate multi-generational audiences around the globe.

Lead singer Duane Allen describes it as tradition that offers something for everyone, “It’s that time of year again…time for the jingle bells to be ringing around the world, and on the stage of The Oak Ridge Boys’ Christmas show. There’ll be songs you already know, the traditional songs, Oak Ridge Boys’ Christmas hits, and some new songs. And I’ve heard that Santa Claus may be arriving on a Peterbilt Sleigh. We begin our show with some major Oak Ridge Boys hits, then we take a break and when the snow starts falling, it’s a full-blown Christmas show….fireplace, rocking chairs (thank you, Cracker Barrel) and all of the exciting, fun, and spiritual songs that reflect the true meaning of Christmas.”
