Oak Ridge Boys Announce New Holiday Album & 30th Annual Christmas Tour

The Oak Ridge Boys—Joe Bonsall, Duane Allen, William Lee Golden and Richard Sterban—are getting a jump on the Christmas season by announcing the release of their new holiday album and upcoming tour.

Produced by Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton), the new holiday album, Down Home Christmas, will be released on Oct. 25. The 10-song offering features classics like “Silent Night” and “Amazing Grace” with newly penned songs by some of Nashville’s top songwriters.

In addition, the Oaks will once again celebrate the Christmas season with their 30th annual holiday tour. Kicking off on Nov. 13 in Branson, Mo., the Down Home Christmas Tour will make more than 30 stops.

Down Home Christmas is a project that we are happy to share with the world and, rest assured, you will hear these songs on our upcoming 30th annual Christmas tour,” says Joe Bonsall. “The instrumentation is sparse, yet incredibly put together, and the vocals are rich and vibrant. Many of the songs were freshly written by a stable of Nashville’s top songwriters.”
