– The Oak Ridge Boys, will once again celebrate the Christmas season on their 26th Annual Christmas Night Out Tour.
The tour starts in Branson, Mo. on Nov. 17 for 3 shows and winds down Dec. 23 in Nashville.
"There is nothing quite like an Oak Ridge Boys Christmas Show," said The Oak Ridge Boys' Joe Bonsall. "This tour has become an Oak Ridge Boys tradition and is a tremendous experience for the entire family. With a revamped stage and a fresh approach, this year's show will be a dynamic mix of music representing every aspect of Christmas from presents and snow, to romance and Santa Claus, on to the real meaning of the season celebrating the birth of Jesus."
The group - Richard Sterban, Duane Allen, William Lee Golden and Bonsall - were named to the Country Music Hall of Fame this year. The group has more than 41 million records sold, 2 double-platinum albums, and more than 30 Top 10 hits, including chart-toppers "Elvira," "Bobbie Sue," "Thank God For Kids" and "American made."
Bonsall added, "Folks can expect to hear old favorites like 'White Christmas' and 'Jingle Bells' mixed with some very poignant newer songs like 'Getting Ready for A Baby' and 'Mary Did You Know.' A highlight of the evening is the much-loved 'rocking chair' segment where each Boy rocks by the fireplace and shares personal thoughts about Christmas. So we hope you'll come out and see us... and Merry Christmas."
