The Oak Ridge Boys—a one-time gospel group—evolved to incorporate country and pop, resulting in them becoming one of the longest-running and most successful groups in the music industry. With Grammy, Dove, CMA and ACM awards to their name, The Oak Ridge Boys cleaned up the honors and milestones effortlessly. Since their beginning in the mid-40s, they have accumulated 10 gold, three platinum, and one double platinum album, in addition to a double platinum single. “Elvira,” their most well-known single, is only one among many chart toppers, including “Bobbie Sue,” “I’ll Be True to You,” “Everyday,” “Little Things,” “This Crazy Love,” and “No Matter how High.”
The Knoxville, Tennessee based group, The Oak Ridge Quartet, became The Oak Ridge Boys in 1961, after already regularly appearing at the Grand Ole Opry and hitting popularity with gospel listeners. Despite the switch to country and pop in the late ‘70s, The Oak Ridge Boys remained true to the gospel harmony in their ensuing songs. Their first appearance on the country charts came in 1973 when they recorded “Praise the Lord and Pass the Soup” with Johnny Cash and the Carter family. This was the first of many recordings with country greats, including sharing the mic with George Jones and Roy Rogers, not to mention providing backup to Paul Simon’s “Slip Slidin’ Away.” Still going strong, The Oak Ridge Boys continue to offer high-energy stage shows, making them one of the most successful touring groups.
