“Sherman produced almost all of the specials the Oaks have done over the past two decades,” said ORB lead singer Duane Allen. “He produced our first video, for a song called “Easy.” In fact, he was so far ahead of the market at that time there were no video shows on American television, so we broke the song in Australia.

We extend our sincere condolences, prayers, and support to the Halsey family. Sherman will be greatly missed.

ORB Faith, Family & Freedom 40th Anniversary Tour

A review by Tommy Jackson

For two-plus glorious hours, a big crowd at the Oak Ridge Boys Theater seemed oblivious to Obamacare, government shutdowns, Syrian weapons of mass destruction, and any other of the various gloom and compare prices viagra doom stories that play nightly in our living rooms. The stark contrast to the above was a concert by America’s ambassadors on behalf of God, country and doxycycline online family at the theater that carries their name in Branson.

The concert was pure magic, but then you knew that going in. As I listened to these wonderful songs, I could see the universal smiles and finpecia online pharmacy nods of approval from all across the auditorium. “These are the people these songs are about,” I thought. The songs are the same kind of songs that have been sung around the family piano or else the Sunday afternoon church picnic from generation to generation. The Oak Ridge Boys’ message is the same as getting a warm hug from your grandchild, checking on the elderly neighbor down the street or feeling a lump in your throat and cialis free trial offer voucher your eyes tearing up when the Colors are presented. It’s a great-grandmother in the nursing home holding the infant that bears her name. It’s the elderly veteran saluting the Flag from his wheelchair. It’s the police officer, firefighter, or soldier sacrificing their own lives in order that others might survive.

This group, which has now been together for more than 40 years, has that rare knack of making the audience feel special and buy nolvadex that the performance is aimed right at them. How do the Oaks accomplish such a feat? It’s easy actually, because, to us, an Oak Ridge Boys’ performance is as sincere and buy provigil online genuine as it gets. It’s like a son scoring the winning touchdown for the high school team on Friday night and being cheered by thousands, but at the after church meal on Sunday, he’s just a part of the family. That’s how it is with The Oaks. They’re out front, sure, but to them and to the audiences that understand and love them, they are just a part of the family. Duane Allen, Joe Bonsall, William Lee Golden and Richard Sterban could just as easily be sitting by you at the dinner table talking baseball as they are playing for millions the world over. People leave an Oak Ridge Boys show happy. Of course, I don’t mean “happy” that it’s over, but instead “happy” and “content” the way an excellent meal leaves you. It’s a warm, comfortable feeling.
