THE OAK RIDGE BOYS NEW ALBUM 17th AVENUE REVIVAL AVAILABLE NOW!!

pecial Vinyl Version of ’17th Avenue Revival’ Available Exclusively At Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Locations

Hall of Famers Set To Appear on Fox & Friends, Good Day NY, Varney & Company, Access Hollywood, PBS’s METRO FOCUS, IMUS in the Morning and more this week!!

“There’s a common thread linking the tracks, and gospel music in general: Humans locating the hope to be transported somewhere better.”​
– Jon Freeman, Rolling Stone Country

“The Oak Ridge Boys have a deep history of gospel singing, and they have no trouble picking up the habit here.”
– Jeff Gage, Rolling Stone

“The set is in fact an “organic” move for the Oaks, whose deep southern gospel music roots–along with early rock ‘n’ roll/R&B energy–have always been the bedrock of their unique country sound.”
– Jim Bessman, Centerline

“An album that shows that, well in their fifth decade of recording and touring together, the ‘Mighty Oaks’ still have plenty of fuel in the creative ignition.”
– Chuck Dauphin, Sounds Like Nashville

“You now have the perfect reason to put down that god-forsaken phone, buy the album…”
– Clay Stevens, American Songwriter

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – With the release of their highly anticipated new album 17th Avenue Revival (March 16, Lightning Rod Records), The Oak Ridge Boys are hitting the Big Apple this week where the quartet will make appearances on Good Day NY, Varney & Company, Access Hollywood, PBS’s METRO FOCUS, Fox & Friends, IMUS in the Morning, SiriusXM, and much more!

17th Avenue Revival brings The Oak Ridge Boys back to their gospel roots, but with an edge. Under the direction of famed-producer Dave Cobb, the Grand Ole Opry and Country Music Hall of Fame members touched on uncharted territory—and for a long-tenured act like The Oak Ridge Boys, that’s saying something. Somewhat retro, yet new and fresh at the same time, there was no vocal stacking and very few overdubs. For two of the songs, the Boys gathered around one microphone and let the harmonies shine, just as Dave Cobb had planned initially.

Since the start of their highly decorated career, the Oaks have achieved five GRAMMY® Awards, and multiple CMA, ACM and Dove Awards for their crossover brand of pop, country and gospel music that spans multiple generations.

The group—Joe Bonsall, Duane Allen, William Lee Golden, and Richard Sterban—have earned prestigious membership in the Country Music Hall of Fame (2015 Inductees) and Grand Ole Opry, and are known worldwide as one of recording history’s most extraordinary musical successes. They have charted single after single and album after album, celebrating two double-platinum albums and more than 30 Top 10 hits, including No. 1 chart-toppers “Elvira,” “Bobbie Sue,” “Thank God For Kids,” “American Made,” “Y’All Come Back Saloon,” among dozens more.

ABOUT SHENANDOAH:
GRAMMY®, CMA and ACM-winning hitmakers Shenandoah are celebrating 30 years of chart-topping hits as the group gears up for new music and non-stop touring in 2018. Fueled by Marty Raybon’s distinctive vocals and the band’s skilled musicianship, Shenandoah became well known for delivering such hits as “Two Dozen Roses”, “Church on Cumberland Road” and “Next to You, Next to Me” as well as such achingly beautiful classics as “I Want to be Loved Like That” and the Grammy winning “Somewhere in the Vicinity of the Heart” duet with Alison Krauss. Today that legacy continues as original members Raybon and Mike McGuire reunite to launch a new chapter in Shenandoah’s storied career. Raybon and McGuire formed the band in 1984 in Muscle Shoals, Alabama with bassist Ralph Ezell, keyboardist Stan Thorn and guitarist Jim Seales. Shenandoah inked a deal with the legendary label and began establishing a national fan base with their self-titled debut in 1987. However, it was the band’s sophomore effort, The Road Not Taken, that spawned their first top ten hits—“She Doesn’t Cry Anymore” and “Mama Knows.” Shenandoah followed with three consecutive No. 1 hits—“Church on Cumberland Road,” “Sunday in the South” and “Two Dozen Roses.” “The Church on Cumberland Road” spent two weeks at the top of the chart and made country music history as it marked the first time that a country band’s first No. 1 single spent more than one week at the summit. It also helped propel sales of the album to more than half a million units thus giving Shenandoah their first gold album. Shenandoah became known for delivering songs that celebrated the importance of faith and family while reveling in the joys of small town life. “Next to You, Next to Me” topped the charts for three weeks and “Somewhere in the Vicinity of the Heart,” a beautiful duet with Alison Krauss, won a Country Music Association Award for Vocal Event of the year and a Grammy for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. Shenandoah also won the Academy of Country Music’s Vocal Group of the Year in 1991. Shenandoah recorded nine studio albums and placed 26 singles on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.

ABOUT THE BELLAMY BROTHERS:
Howard and David continue to prove that the trail they’ve ridden to fame has been as unique as their music itself—music that is now celebrating 40 years of success. The road that started on the pop music charts in the ‘70’s, took a winding turn into country music in the ‘80’s, paving the way for duos to come, such as Brooks & Dunn, Montgomery Gentry, Big & Rich, and The Judds. “If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me),” originally scrawled on a dinner napkin by David, rocketed them to the top of the country charts the way “Let Your Love Flow,” had done in the pop market just a few years earlier. It proved to be the first of a string of fourteen No. 1 singles in the U.S. alone. They’re the only U.S. country music act who’ve toured in India, Sri Lanka, New Caledonia and Qatar. The Bellamy Brothers hold the record in both the Academy of Country Music (ACM) and the Country Music Association Awards (CMA) for the most duo nominations. Numerous Grammy nods have also been directed toward the brothers. For more information, visitbellamybrothers.com.

Pride to Accept Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award

NASHVILLE, TENN. – Country icon Charley Pride is back with his brand new album, Music In My Heart, which is available now. The project serves as Pride’s first album in more than six years, and is released via Music City Records. The highly anticipated project features 13 new studio recordings that were produced by acclaimed singer/songwriter Billy Yates.

Pride has continued to turn heads with the new collection. In addition to a recent feature by Billboard, Pride will also be included in spotlight feature interviews with the Associated Press, Huffington Post, Goldmine Magazine and more. Media is raving, with Billboard saying “Charley Pride’s vocals are just as soothing to the soul as a glass of Granny’s tea and those pair of shoes that you always find yourself drawn to…..just like returning to the well.”

The trailblazing singer will be celebrating street week by traveling to New York City to accept the Lifetime Achievement Award from The Recording Academy® at their 2017 Special Merit Awards. The awards ceremony and live tribute concert will be held on Tuesday, July 11, at The Beacon Theatre, where Pride will also be performing.

Pride will also appear at the Summer NAMM Show in Nashville July 15. The multi-Grammy® award winner will be performing songs from his brand new album, along with many of the 36 chart-topping hits that propelled him to superstardom and an induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
