Legendary award-winning, hit-making group
celebrate 24th Anniversary of Christmas Tour

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (November 11, 2013) – Grammy Award-winning music legends The Oak Ridge Boys are
set to celebrate the 24th Anniversary of their annual Christmas Tour in
2013 with a festive show featuring live performances of holiday
classics and their biggest hits.  Additionally, while Richard Sterban,
Duane Allen, William Lee Golden, and Joe Bonsall are celebrating their
40th Anniversary of The Oak Ridge Boys, they have teamed with Compassion
International as the official sponsor of the “Christmas Time’s a Comin’” Tour.

“Over the course of our career we have worked with many children’s
relief organizations, but never have we seen a more positive response
from our fans than we are seeing with Compassion International,” says
Oak Ridge Boy Joe Bonsall.  “I believe that folks are moved by
Compassion International’s Christ-centered approach to feeding and
educating needy kids around the world—and their amazing success rate,
which is impressive! When folks sign up to help a hungry child there is a
huge chance that THAT child will rise out of poverty and make a
difference in the world. This is why we are excited and blessed to be
working with this stellar organization.”

The Oak Ridge Boys came together in 1973, beginning as gospel
singers, became a top act in country music and then crossed over to pop
with the monster hit “Elvira” in 1981.  The song became their
fourth No. 1 country hit, reached No. 5 on the pop charts, won the group
a Grammy® award and went on to become one of only a handful of
singles released out of Nashville ever to go double platinum.  The Oak
Ridge Boys recently became members of the Grand Ole Opry®.

“Compassion International will be traveling with us on our Christmas Time’s a Comin’ Tour so
folks can meet them first hand and join with us as we try to do some
positive things for children. The song “Thank God For Kids” has inspired
us for decades to give back and to be a special blessing to needy
children. Our partnership with Compassion International enables us to
fulfill those visions, and together we can make a huge difference
through Christmas and beyond!” adds Bonsall.

The Oak Ridge Boys are known for creating a show atmosphere of
holiday cheer with their Christmas tour, which consistently receives
rave reviews and has become a holiday tradition in its own right since
its start 24 years ago.  The masterful blends of new and traditional
yuletide tunes are enhanced by the powerhouse group’s renowned four-part

The Oak Ridge Boys will be filling the holiday season with the celebrated sounds of their Christmas Time’s A Coming CD
(Gaither Gospel Series). The album was released to retail outlets in
2012, with an exclusive version of the CD available at Cracker Barrel
Old Country Store®, featuring two heartwarming bonus tracks that capture
the meaning of the season. The Christmas Time’s A Coming album marks the Oaks’ sixth holiday CD.
