THE OAK RIDGE BOYS ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM
Second Project with Acclaimed Producer Dave Cobb
– Country Music Hall of Fame members and five-time GRAMMY winning
group, The Oak Ridge Boys, announced they will release a project with
acclaimed producer Dave Cobb in the first quarter of 2018.
At a listening event during Americana Music Association AmericanaFest
at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A, where the album was recorded, the
Oaks performed songs from the yet-untitled project recorded with
multi-award winning producer Dave Cobb. This is the group’s second
project with Cobb, who produced the Oaks’ acclaimed The Boys Are Back album released in 2009.
For the new project, Cobb’s vision for the Oaks was to dig way back
into their roots of gospel music. 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 album will be released by Lightning Rod Records and distributed by Thirty Tigers.
According to Logan Rogers, founder of Lightning Rod Records,
“Everyone has heard the Boys sing gospel, but nobody has heard it quite
like this. Under Dave Cobb’s direction, they touch on unchartered
territory—and for a long-tenured act like The Oak Ridge Boys, that’s
The event was hosted by Peter Cooper, Senior Director, Producer and Writer at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
