Week 7 Update From Duane

Monday, 12 September 2011 08:46

week7WISH YOU COULD'VE BEEN THERE
I met Shar’n Clark in a take-out food place in Nashville several years ago. She asked me if she could send me some songs. I said yes. We have become close friends in the music world. That is how it happens in Nashville. She sent me Christmas Cookies, which was a big song for us. Shar’n knows I like well-written songs that can be looked at in different ways. Wish You Could’ve Been There is a message song, and you can let it apply to you however you wish. I think of the people who encouraged me to follow my dreams when I sing this song. Thank you, Shar’n, for continuing to send us great songs.

Dallas Frazier on "Elvira"

Monday, 29 August 2011 10:49

What Dallas Frazier had to say about the The Boys...
"When the Oaks first cut Elvira, the phenomenal success it created for them blessed my quest for success as well.  Every songwriter dreams of getting cuts like that one.  They did an extraordinary job!!

When I just recently heard their new cut on Elvira, my reaction was WOW!!  These guys sound just as good as they did 30 years ago.  There is no doubt that standing ovations are going to follow them as long as they perform.  God bless the Oaks!  I'm proud that they count me as one of their friends.
~ Dallas Frazier, songwriter, Elvira

 
 

Week 5 Update From Richard

One of the great things about this project was being reunited with our long time producer, Ron Chancey. It was exciting for all of us to work with Ron again. We brought him back especially to produce a new recording of Elvira in celebration of her 30th anniversary, but he also produced two other songs.

Our goal was not to change Elvira but to reenergize it and cialis express delivery make it relevant to the current marketplace. I think we did that. It now sounds more like our live version. If you compare the oom poppa mow mows from thirty years ago to our new recording, they sound different. The newer version is more exciting, more live.
 
 

Week 4 Update From William Lee

williamFrom William Lee Golden

LOUISIANA RED DIRT HIGHWAY
Louisiana Red Dirt Highway took me home, literally. When I first recorded this song we filmed the video in my hometown of Brewton, Alabama. The video reached #1 on CMT and stayed in the Top Ten for 13 weeks. The lyrics remind me of my childhood and canadian cialis online the clay roads lined with pine tree, which directed me to Tennessee when I joined The Oak Ridge Boys as a young man.

Week 3 Update From Duane

Monday, 15 August 2011 08:25

Duane-singingFrom Duane Allen
It's Only Natural
is a mixture of hits and brand new songs, ballads and cheap cialis without prescription kickin' songs—and there are songs that feature each member of the Oaks as we take our individual leads. I am normally recognized as the lead singer. However, this project gives each “Boy” the opportunity to sing lead as the other three harmonize. This week I want to talk about two of the new songs on the CD!

WHAT'CHA GONNA DO
I look at this as a group song. We all start singing it in power harmony from the beginning. I sing the verses, but I believe some of the most memorable lines of the song come from Richard Sterban. This song was pitched to us by a former employee of The Oak Ridge Boys . . . Raymond Hicks was our road manager for many years. He has started a new publishing company and cialis visa we are honored that he pitched this to the Oaks. I believe this is his first cut on a song he has pitched. I would call this a typical “Oak Ridge Boys’” song in the area of One In A Million, American Made, or Dig A Little Deeper In The Well, with “heavy on” group singing.
