The Oak Ridge Boys

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (December 9, 2015) – ‘Tis the season for giving, and the legendary group The Oak Ridge Boys
are on a mission to give back to our nation’s servicemen and women.
Tune in to watch them perform memorable hits and holiday-favorite tunes
as they host “The American Legion Christmas Special,”
which airs in multiple markets across the U.S. this December. The merry
television event will help to raise awareness and funding for The
American Legion, which is the nation’s largest wartime veterans
organization committed to improving the lives and communities of
veterans and service members.

Stand-out performances of songs like “Christmas Time’s A Comin’,”
“Jingle Bells,” and “Christmas Cookies,” amidst a festive backdrop of
snow-tipped evergreens and sparkling lights make “The American Legion
Christmas Special” an event not to be missed as family and friends
gather together this December. Special musical guests the Gatlin Brothers also appear, along with performers Mary Sarah and Martin Family Circus.

Long-time supporters of the military, The Oak Ridge Boys joined
forces with The American Legion in 2014 to help raise awareness and
support for better detection and treatment of post-traumatic stress
disorder for veterans. Through this affiliation, they have also assisted
with improving the VA benefits process, as well as education and career
opportunities available for veterans once they return to civilian life.

In October 2015, the Grand Ole Opry members were inducted into the
prestigious Country Music Hall of Fame — arguably the genre’s highest
honor — for their iconic hits and ground-breaking contributions to
country music. Throughout their 40-year career, their exceptional
four-part harmonies, energetic stage performances and mega hits have
garnered them over 41 million records sold including two double-platinum
selling and three platinum selling albums. The Oak Ridge Boys perform
more than 150 shows each year, ranging from giant state fairs to
intimate venues, including symphony halls, auditoriums, festivals and
arenas around the world.

Catch them on their annual holiday tour, the 2015 Christmas Night Out Tour,
which began on Nov. 11 in Missouri and will wrap up on Dec. 23 in
Nashville. For a full list of upcoming tour dates, please visit
