Originally from Knoxville, Tennessee, The Oak Ridge Boys is a bastion of Southern gospel and country music history. Known to many as the backing group for the 1960s performances by Elvis Presley and for a single they recorded with Johnny Cash when the band first got started in the 1940s and 1950s, the band slowly became known for its Southern gospel sound. As the decades ticked away, The Oak Ridge Boys adopted a country music sound and rose to fame during the 1980s with some of its most well-known hits such as 1981's "Elvira," 1982's "Bobbie Sue" and "American Made" from 1983. Though the band has experienced several lineup changes in its 60-plus year career, the group continues to bring its old classics to new generations of fans.
