2013 marks four decades since Joe Bonsall first walked onto a stage with Richard Sterban, Duane Allen, and William Lee Golden as The Oak Ridge Boys. They have written several chapters of music history and there seems to be no end in sight. Before their record-setting Country career, the Oaks were among the biggest stars in Gospel. The group has scored 12 gold, three platinum, and one double platinum album, have had more than a dozen national #1 singles and over 30 Top Ten Hits. In addition, they have earned awards such as the Grammy, Dove, CMA, ACM and a host of other industry and fan accolades.
The Oak Ridge Boys stand for American values - faith, family, and freedom - perhaps more so than any other entertainers. Their tradition extends back to World War II, when the original group (based in Knoxville, Tennessee) began performing Country and Gospel music in nearby Oak Ridge - the location where the atomic bomb was being developed. Calling themselves the Oak Ridge Quartet, they became regulars at the Grand Ole Opry. By the late '60s, more than 30 members had come and gone eventually ending up with the four you see today: one of the most innovative quartets in Country and Gospel music.
