Oak Ridge Boys Featured in Hall of Fame Exhibit

Memorabilia from the Oak Ridge Boys’ career will be featured in an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville from May 13 until Nov. 29. Titled The Oak Ridge Boys: Thirty Years in the Mainstream, 1975-2005, the exhibit examines the quartet’s transition from gospel group to country stars. It includes a portrait of the group drawn by caricaturist Al Hirschfeld to promote their 1986 performance at Radio City Music Hall, as well as a Joe Bonsall’s banjo, Richard Sterban and Duane Allen’s stage clothes and a painting by William Lee Golden. The Oaks’ hits include “Elvira,” “Y’All Come Back Saloon,” “Bobbie Sue” and “American Made.”
