COUNTRY MUSIC LEGENDS, THE OAK RIDGE BOYS LAUNCH THEIR SUIT LINE WITH A MISSION TO BRING JOBS HOME TO AMERICA
BREMEN, Ga. –
Country music legends, The Oak Ridge Boys have joined forces with
American companies to place a new emphasis on buying products made in
the United States. The Liberty Legends USA program debuted in 2015 and
this week announced their launch of their second Legends Series, the “American Made Collection”
by The Oak Ridge Boys. The collection will debut with a line of high
quality suits, Made in the USA. The Liberty Legends USA Series is a
collaboration of Made in America businesses and leaders promoting a
movement to buy American, bringing jobs and profits back to American
soil. The American Made Collection is now available through the link provided at oakridgeboys.com.
“If you have ever been to The Oak Ridge Boys concert, you have heard
the passion behind the group’s commitment to the spirit of America,”
commented Robin Worley, Co-Founder of the Liberty Legends USA brand. “As
we searched for our next legend in this mission, it was easy to see
these guys have the heart and commitment to take this mission of
building awareness to a new level. My childhood friend, Randall Redding,
and I both grew up in a community that was devastated by NAFTA. We
talked about wanting to do something for years, then in 2015 we saw our
opportunity that not only would help our hometown community, but others
like it across America. In collaboration with several partners, we
launched a brand named Liberty Legends USA that we felt would provide a
platform for leaders to support the “buy American” mission. Liberty
Legends USA is a non-political platform that encourages and celebrates
jobs in America. It is a movement that is not limited to American only
brands, but we choose to celebrate and highlight anyone who brings jobs
and/or keeps good paying jobs in America. With the help of partners like
The Oak Ridge Boys, our sponsors and the growing list of endorsers, we
are seeing the movement take off.”
In addition to launching the suit line, Duane Allen of The Oak Ridge
Boys has joined the Executive Board of Directors of Liberty Legends USA.
In this capacity, Duane will serve as one of the key ambassadors. The
Executive Board, which is made up of individuals of various backgrounds,
will guide the outreach efforts to increase the awareness of the
“We are honored to have Duane join the Executive Board. We look
forward to working with him to build greater outreach networks so that
we can take the ‘buy American’ message to greater audiences and the next
level,” said Robin Worley.
“After spending decades traveling across the USA, I have seen the
recent closing of many of our manufacturing companies, mill towns, and
hometown businesses. When these places close, manufacturing is often
relocated overseas, and we not only lose jobs, but Americans often must
find a new line of work,” said Duane Allen.
“I am happy to be a part of Liberty Legends USA with its goal of keeping our factories and our mill towns open and providing good quality Made in America products. These products might cost a little more, but they’re an investment in our country’s economy. Buying Made in America provides an opportunity for our businesses to grow, while Americans earn a fair wage.”
The Liberty Legends USA mission has gained notoriety in the infancy
stages by leaders such as Ambassador Andrew Young, Governor Mike
Huckabee, Ret. Major General Gary Harrell (who was featured in the movie
Black Hawk Down), Dr. Richie Bland, as well as a long list of
celebrity endorsers who visit the key movement sponsor, Mill Town Music
Hall. The movement sponsor list is growing and now includes Mill Town
Music Hall, Threads Custom Apparel, Philbeck Custom Clothiers, Diamond
Gusset Jeans and Cutman Classic.
“As our name implies, we are a music hall located in what was once
the men’s suit capital of the south, a mill town,” said Mill Town Music
Hall owner and Liberty Legends Co-founder, Randall Redding. “We think
our venue stands for what the Liberty Legends mission is all about,
taking a stand for the mill towns of America and helping them rebuild.
At one time, the mill towns across America were busy with factories and
mills making things, and today the buildings are silent. We have famous
people come through here two to three times a month, and when they learn
about the Legends movement, they can’t help but want to be a part of
it. Some of them buy items, other post comments on their Facebook pages,
and a few like The Oak Ridge Boys feel so empowered they join it and
launch their own branded items in partnership with us.”
Mill Town Music Hall serves as the fulfillment center for Liberty
Legends USA items including The Oak Ridge Boys American Made Collection.
Mill Town’s website and physical location in Bremen, GA serves as the
primary store for many other Made in the USA items.
