The Oak Ridge Boys have one of the most distinctive and recognizable sounds in the music industry. The four-part harmonies and upbeat songs of the Oaks have spawned dozens of country hits and earned them Grammy, Dove, Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music awards, and garnered a host of industry and fan accolades.

Based in Knoxville, Tenn., the original group called themselves the Oak Ridge Quartet and began singing country and gospel music in 1943. By the late ’60s, more than 30 members of the group had come and gone. By 1973, they had a lineup that included Duane Allen, William Lee Golden, Joe Bonsall and Richard Sterban.

To this day, the Oak Ridge Boys are going strong. They make some 150 personal appearances each year, ranging from state fairs to auditoriums and arenas nationwide. They have topped the charts with hits including “Elvira,” “Bobbie Sue” and “American Made.”

The Oak Ridge Boys’ Christmas show features classic hits and holiday favorites. There may even be a visit from a special guest from the North Pole.
