The Oak Ridge Boys
The Oaks represent a tradition that extends back to World War II. The original group, based in Knoxville, Tennessee, began performing Country and Gospel music in nearby Oak Ridge where the atomic bomb was being developed. They called themselves the Oak Ridge Quartet, and they began regular Grand Ole Opry appearances in the fall of 1945. In the mid-fifties, they were featured in Time magazine as one of the top drawing Gospel groups in the nation.
“When I go on stage, I get the same feeling I had the first time I sang with The Oak Ridge Boys,” says lead singer Duane Allen. “This is the only job I’ve ever wanted to have.”
The group has scored 12 gold, three platinum, and one double platinum album-plus on double platinum single-and had more than a dozen national Number One singles and over 30 Top Ten hits.
