GRAMMY® Award-winning and Country Music Hall of Fame members, The Oak Ridge Boys, will once again celebrate the Christmas season with their timeless hits and holiday classics on their 2018 Shine The Light On Christmas Tour. This year’s tour will take the legendary group to 32 cities in 18 states, and is set to kick-off on November 14th in Branson, Missouri.
Each year The Oak Ridge Boys’ Christmas tour plays to packed houses across America. Blending a mixture of traditional and contemporary songs—including religious, romantic, and fun holiday tunes—The Oak Ridge Boys’ set list will take their audiences on a hit-filled musical roller coaster ride of holiday cheer from their six best selling Christmas album catalog.
“The Shine The Light On Christmas Tour this year will be our 29th annual Christmas tour,” says Oaks’ Joe Bonsall. “We will sing hit songs for 40 minutes and after a short intermission our full production Christmas show takes over the stage with music celebrating every aspect of the holiday season, from Santa Claus to celebrating the birth of Jesus. Our production is all new and fresh this year and we are more excited than ever to be bringing this very special family event to your town!”
As part of a collaboration with Bluegrass duo, Little Roy & Lizzy, The Oak Ridge Boys were honored last night with their twelfth win at the 2018 Gospel Music Association’s Dove Awards. “We love Little Roy & Lizzy and are just so happy that they won the GMA’s Dove Award for “Dinner On The Ground.” says Bonsall. “YAY, Another Dove!! This one is for Best Country or Bluegrass Gospel Song.”
The group—Joe Bonsall, Duane Allen, William Lee Golden and Richard Sterban—are best known for their iconic and multi-platinum hit “Elvira,” along with other chart-toppers like “Bobbie Sue,” “Thank God For Kids,” “Y’All Come Back Saloon,” and “American Made.” The Oak Ridge Boys have achieved a decorated career, winning five GRAMMY® Awards, multiple CMA, ACM and Dove Awards for their crossover brand of pop, country and gospel music that spans multiple generations. The Oak Ridge Boys became members of the Grand Ole Opry in 2011 and achieved arguably country music’s highest honor in October 2015 when they were inducted into the Country Music Hall Of Fame.
