Serendipity Sundays- The Oak Ridge Boys
There are icons in the music industry and the Oak Ridge Boys have made it to that status. Not like some of the other groups from long ago, they have continued to be strong and have a rigorous concert schedule.
The original Boys started in the late 40's near Knoxville, TN. Those first members phased out as the current Boys joined one by one. William Golden (the long white beard) joined in 1965. Duane Allen in 1966 and Richard Sterban joined the group in 1972 and in 1973, Joe Bonsall completed the set.
Their sound is still strong, they are still entertaining, recording and Joe is writing books. I had the pleasure to see them again last night and hear some of their big hits like Bobbie Sue and Elvira. They played non-stop for over an hour and a half. That is stamina many new groups do not have.
The youngster, Joe is 68, Duane and Richard are 73 and William Golden is almost 78. They announced they have no plans to retire anytime soon. That is what happens when you love what you do and never want to stop.
Last year the Oak Ridge Boys were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Their music started in the gospel genre but migrated to country. Now they do some of both.
