An Evening With The Oak Ridge Boys

The GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to welcome the Oak Ridge Boys to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate conversation and performance spotlighting their forthcoming new album, 17th Avenue Revival, hosted by GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman. Recorded at Nashville's historic RCA Studio A and produced by acclaimed pop/rock producer Dave Cobb, this album (set for release on March 16) finds the Oak Ridge Boys returning to their gospel roots. Known for their four-part harmonies and upbeat songs, the Oak Ridge Boys have spawned dozens of country hits, earned five GRAMMYs®, Dove, CMA, and ACM awards, and an assortment of other industry accolades. Their career has spanned not only decades, but also formats. In 1977, Paul Simon tapped the Oak Ridge Boys to sing backup on his hit “Slip Slidin’ Away,” and they went on to record with George Jones, Brenda Lee, Johnny Cash, Roy Rogers, Billy Ray Cyrus, Bill Monroe, Ray Charles, and even Shooter Jennings, the son of their old friend Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter. In 2009, the group recorded their album, The Boys Are Back, with Cobb. The project included their cover of The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army,” which received accolades from rock reviewers. In 2011, the group released their album, It’s Only Natural, through Cracker Barrel Old Country Store. In early 2014, the Oak Ridge Boys celebrated 41 million RIAA-certified records sold by signing a new record deal with Los Angeles-based Cleopatra Records, releasing Boys Night Out, a 14-song live project. The Oak Ridge Boys have since been inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, where their history will forever be enshrined.
