The Oak Ridge Boys New Album ’17th Avenue Revival’ Available Now!!


Special Vinyl Version of ’17th Avenue Revival’ Available Exclusively At Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Locations

Hall of Famers Set To Appear on Fox & Friends, Good Day NY, Varney & Company, Access Hollywood, PBS’s METRO FOCUS, IMUS in the Morning and more this week!!

“There’s a common thread linking the tracks, and gospel music in general: Humans locating the hope to be transported somewhere better.”​
– Jon Freeman, Rolling Stone Country

“The Oak Ridge Boys have a deep history of gospel singing, and they have no trouble picking up the habit here.”
– Jeff Gage, Rolling Stone

“The set is in fact an “organic” move for the Oaks, whose deep southern gospel music roots–along with early rock ‘n’ roll/R&B energy–have always been the bedrock of their unique country sound.”
– Jim Bessman, Centerline

“An album that shows that, well in their fifth decade of recording and touring together, the ‘Mighty Oaks’ still have plenty of fuel in the creative ignition.”
– Chuck Dauphin, Sounds Like Nashville

“You now have the perfect reason to put down that god-forsaken phone, buy the album…”
– Clay Stevens, American Songwriter

With the release of their highly anticipated new album 17th Avenue Revival (March 16, Lightning Rod Records), The Oak Ridge Boys are hitting the Big Apple this week where the quartet will make appearances on Good Day NY, Varney & Company, Access Hollywood, PBS’s METRO FOCUS, Fox & Friends, IMUS in the Morning, SiriusXM, and much more!

17th Avenue Revival brings The Oak Ridge Boys back to their gospel roots, but with an edge. Under the direction of famed-producer Dave Cobb, the Grand Ole Opry and Country Music Hall of Fame members touched on uncharted territory—and for a long-tenured act like The Oak Ridge Boys, that’s saying something. Somewhat retro, yet new and fresh at the same time, there was no vocal stacking and very few overdubs. For two of the songs, the Boys gathered around one microphone and let the harmonies shine, just as Dave Cobb had planned initially.

Since the start of their highly decorated career, the Oaks have achieved five GRAMMY® Awards, and multiple CMA, ACM and Dove Awards for their crossover brand of pop, country and gospel music that spans multiple generations.

About The Oak Ridge Boys:
The Oak Ridge Boys, who have sold over 41 million units worldwide, are synonymous with “America, apple pie, baseball, pop, rock, gospel and country music.” In addition to their awards and accolades in the country and pop music fields, they have garnered five GRAMMY® Awards and nine GMA DOVE Awards as well as the Mainstream Artist of the Year Award at the ICM Awards. The group—Joe Bonsall, Duane Allen, William Lee Golden, and Richard Sterban—have earned prestigious membership in the Country Music Hall of Fame (2015 Inductees) and Grand Ole Opry, and are known worldwide as one of recording history’s most extraordinary musical successes. They have charted single after single and album after album, celebrating two double-platinum albums and more than 30 Top 10 hits, including No. 1 chart-toppers “Elvira,” “Bobbie Sue,” “Thank God For Kids,” “American Made,” “Y’All Come Back Saloon,” among dozens more.

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member, the legendary GRAMMY-winning ‘Soul Man’, Sam Moore will release a new album titled An American Patriot this October. To promote the release, Moore will appear on a number of New York media outlets, including Fox & Friends, Imus, Do You Remember?, CNBC, LifeMinute TV, PBS MetroFocus and more.

An American Patriot will pay tribute to those who have served our country and was inspired by Moore’s own performance of “America the Beautiful” on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, where his dear friend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. stood 53 years earlier delivering his famous “I Have a Dream” speech. On An American Patriot, Moore delivers exclusive renditions of iconic classics like Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the U.S.A.” and “Show For You,” the 2017 Department of Defense Warrior Games anthem.

Moore will fly to New York straight from BBC Proms held at Royal Albert Hall, London, where Moore and other Stax originals Booker T. Jones, Eddie Floyd, William Bell and sideman Steve Cropper celebrate and are being celebrated at the 50th anniversary concert honoring the 1967 Stax/Volt Revue’s groundbreaking tour of the UK and Europe that included Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Booker T and the MGs, Eddie Floyd and Arthur Conley. The legendary artists will be joined by Sir Tom Jones, Beverly Knight, James Morrison, Ruby Turner supported by Jools Holland and His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra as part of a star-studded line-up for the Late Night Prom, The Sound of Soul: Stax Records (Friday, September 1).

Moore will perform a duet with his friend of five decades, Sir Tom and the much younger UK soul superstar Beverly Knight before launching into his solo performance of his iconic “Soul Man,” marking 50 years since its historic release.

Of this performance, Moore says: “I never imagined I’d be coming across the pond to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of one of the most exciting times in my life, the 1967 Stax/Volt Tour. The love and enthusiasm from the British audiences back then was like nothing any of us had ever experienced before. Performing at the Proms now at Royal Albert Hall with some of those we’d influenced is spectacular. I just wish that Otis, Arthur, Al, Duck, Wayne, Andrew and Dave were here to celebrate with us… Maybe they’re all looking down and patting their feet to the beat.”

The concert will be broadcast at 10:15pm GMT on Friday, September 1 on BBC Radio 3 and BBC Four. It will be recorded for broadcast on BBC Radio 2 on Friday, September 15 at 8:00pm GMT.

For more information about Moore, or for up-to-date appearance schedules, follow on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Sam Moore found musical fame as one half of the ’60s powerhouse duo Sam & Dave. With 1967’s hit “Soul Man,” the duo found lasting fame, defined a genre, and altered the course of music history. Their signature sound influenced a diverse array of musical talents, including Al Green, Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie, Tom Petty, Phil Collins, Elvis Costello, Billy Joel and so many others. Sam & Dave’s music and personas inspired the film The Blues Brothers, and other hits like “Hold On I’m Coming” have appeared on the soundtracks of more than a dozen films. Moore, 81, continues to record and perform to critical acclaim as a solo artist and as a guest performer for dozens of his musical friends. The Legendary Soul Man recently accepted a position as Artist in Residence at Florida International University as part of the College of Arts, Sciences & Education Humanities Project.

“19” tells the story of a local football star signing up for the military straight out of high school following the terror attacks on September 11, 2001. In the end he pays the ultimate sacrifice as the song describes a life tragically cut short.

But on the day those Twin Towers came down
his whole world turned around
he told them all I can’t play ball there’s a war on now
he marched right in with a few good men
and joined the marines
at nineteen
(Tom Hambridge, Jeffrey Steele, Gary Nicholson)

“I’m really looking forward to performing on “Fox and Friends” and “Home & Family.” It is truly a dream come true and even more importantly to perform a song as monumental as “19,” which pays tribute to all those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country,” says Shane.

Owens album, “Where I’m Comin’ From,” is featured on Amazon’s Best Deals Page. Fans can also purchase an autographed copy from ShaneOwensCountry.com as well as iTunes.

About Shane Owens:
Amerimonte Records recording artist, Shane Owens, recently named by Rolling Stone Country as one of “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know,” has been building a strong following in nightclubs across the Southeast for more than a decade. His powerful vocal range combined with the emotional lyrical content of his songs has made him a favorite of fans, critics, and his fellow artists alike. After starting his career by opening shows for dozens of major stars in the mid-2000s, the baritone performer attracted the attention of Nashville music executives, and he soon landed a record deal. However, with all the changes in the music industry at the time, his album was shelved and never released. Just like the ‘Never Give Up’ mantra of his lyrics, Owens picked himself up and moved on, thanks to famed producer James Stroud (Tim McGraw, Aaron Lewis, Clint Black), who produced his new album, Where I’m Comin’ From with Country music legend Randy Travis and industry executive Steve Popovich, Jr. as executive producers and mixed by Ed Seay (Blake Shelton, Martina McBride, Alabama).
