New From The Oak Ridge Boys

The Oak Ridge Boys Team Up With Grammy Museum For Intimate Performance on February 15th

TV Alert: The Oaks Set To Perform On Hallmark Channel’s ‘Home & Family’ Tomorrow!

LOS ANGELES, Calif.The Oak Ridge Boys announce the exclusive premiere of their latest video, “Pray To Jesus,” a song that was originally recorded by its co-writer, Brandy Clark, who was GRAMMY nominated for “Best New Artist” in 2015, at Billboard.com. The new track is included in the Oaks’ forthcoming album, 17th Avenue Revival, available everywhere March 16th on Lightning Rod Records.

Recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A and produced by acclaimed pop/rock producer Dave Cobb, 17th Avenue Revival finds The Oak Ridge Boys returning to their gospel roots. But a different kind of gospel. One that took a hard look at the early days of rock and roll, which was influenced by spiritual, or black gospel.

The Oak Ridge Boys are also set to play the prestigious GRAMMY Museum’s Clive Davis Theater on February 15th, for an intimate conversation and performance spotlighting 17th Avenue Revival. The performance will be hosted by GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman.

The Oak Ridge Boys will continue the promotional trail as they make an appearance on Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family on February 15th. In addition to providing a little help in the kitchen with hosts Mark Steines & Debbie Matenopoulos, fans can catch a special performance by The Oak Ridge Boys.
