Tuesday, 06 September 2011 08:53I wrote Sacrifice...For Me awhile back, and I have always hoped that someday we would find the right project and the right time to let it loose. It would seem the time is now. 'It’s only natural' to be singing a song of sacrifice and prices paid for liberty with the 10th anniversary of 9/11 this week.

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

From Duane Allen
It's Only Natural is a mixture of hits and brand new songs, ballads and 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 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.
