William Lee Golden Exhibits Art at the Viva Florida 500

VivaFL_500_w-web_horizontal-01Viva Florida 500 is a statewide initiative led by the Florida Department of State, under the leadership of Governor Rick Scott, to highlight the 500 years of historic people, places and events in present-day Florida since the arrival of Juan Ponce de León to the land he named La Florida in 1513. While Florida’s Native American heritage dates back more than 12,000 years, Spain’s claim in 1513 began a new era. 2013 marks 500 years of history and diverse cultural heritage in Florida – a claim no other state in America can make – and Viva Florida 500 promotes the place where the world’s cultures began to unite and transform into the great nation we know today as the United States of America. The Viva Florida 500 commemoration is ongoing throughout 2013, and includes more than 200 events statewide. The goal is to promote 500 years of Florida’s history – its people, places and cultural achievements – and this important milestone in American and Florida history.

BoysCircusWebRezBy: Bob Paxman | COUNTRY WEEKLY

Even after 40 years in the music business, The Oak Ridge Boys haven't yet run out of "firsts." On Sunday afternoon (Jan. 27) in Nashville, the members of the legendary vocal group were honored as guest ringmasters for the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, a new experience for an act that has played to audiences all around the world. The Oaks also performed the national anthem, which they've done on countless occasions—but never at a circus.

THE OAK RIDGE BOYS RESPOND TO CALL FROM FORMER FIRST LADY BARBARA BUSH

Oaks call to serenade President George H.W. Bush while recovering

"Words cannot properly express how much The Oaks' special performance meant to the President and the Bush family. This friendship goes back many years, and what happened yesterday gave the President a real shot in the arm as he, thankfully, continues to improve. The Bushes continue to feel so blessed to have so many friends like The Oaks, and wish to thank one and all for their prayers and good wishes." – Office of George H. W. Bush

“Yesterday morning, The Oak Ridge Boys received the daily report from President Bush (41’s) staff. The report of his health was that he was improving each day. Then, we received another message, Barbara Bush requested that we call the President and sing to him! All of the Oak Ridge Boys are on vacation, but we all headed to our office upon hearing of this request. We called the President and sang for him. He asked to hear Elvira, so we sang that for him, and then we sang one verse of Amazing Grace.” – Duane Allen, The Oak Ridge Boys
