New Single “Life Is Beautiful” Premiered Exclusively With Wide Open Country
“Interviewing The Oak Ridge Boys on William Lee’s home front porch is one of those conversations I will cherish for a lifetime. The Oaks shared memories with me for ET as if I were a grandchild, eager to hear the highs they recollected of their monumental career that’s spanned 50 years and counting. I was particularly honored when The Oak Ridge Boys busted out in a song mid-interview, displaying that The Oaks have always had it, have still got it and show zero signs of slowing down!”
– Rachel Smith/Entertainment Tonight Correspondent
