PROCLAMATION ANNOUNCED DURING GRAND OLE OPRY BY WSM’S EDDIE STUBBS
Nashville, Tenn. (July 18, 2012) – The prestigious National Music Council has appointed The Oak Ridge Boys as the official leading singers of America’s National Anthem, “The Star Spangled Banner.” The proclamation recognizes the iconic group’s contribution to the preservation of patriotic American music, their longstanding advancement of musical culture and their commitment to celebrating the global diversity of music traditions. It’s also in celebration of the Oaks’ continued service as ambassadors of American culture. Last night, WSM’s Eddie Stubbs made the announcement while introducing the group at the world renowned Grand Ole Opry.
Autographed copies of Richard Sterban's new book, From Elvis to Elvira, are now available for pre-sale at the ORB store. Click HERE for additional information.
Speaking about the project, Richard said, "Writing a book is something that I have thought about doing for many years, and the time finally felt right. I have been blessed with an amazing life—one of which I could have never dreamed. Just think about it: raised in New Jersey, I not only came to love gospel quartets, I somehow found my way to make a living singing with one.
"But more than simply making a living, I soon found myself onstage with the greatest performer in the history of music, Elvis Presley. And while that should have been enough for any dreamer, I somehow found the faith to leave that job to join a group that I truly loved and believed could become something great. Forty years later, I'm still thrilled to be the bass singer for The Oak Ridge Boys.”
