New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
For almost thirty years, Country Music
Hall of Fame members The Oak Ridge Boyshave been a part of their fans' holiday seasons with their annual Christmas tour. This year, the Grammy Award-winning group will play their Shine
The Light On Christmas show at the Morrison Center in Boise on December 3.
A mixture of traditional and contemporary songs-including religious, romantic and fun holiday tunes-makes up the set list, which includes songs from the Oaks' seven bestselling Christmas CDs. A highlight of the evening is the much-loved 'rocking chair' segment where each BOY rocks by the fireplace and shares personal thoughts about Christmas.
Oaks' lead singer, Duane Allen, says, "Christmas is my favorite time of year. I love the positive things about the season.... the joy, happiness, giving, sharing, time with family, and gifts. The beautiful lights and decorations. Christmas music. Special food. And most of all the true meaning, which, of course, is celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
"Every year I look forward to taking our Christmas tour all over the USA. I hope everyone will come out this year and celebrate Christmas with The Oak Ridge Boys."
Known for their iconic and multi-platinum selling hit "Elvira," along with other chart-toppers like "Bobbie Sue," "Thank God For Kids," and "Leaving Louisiana In The Broad Daylight," The Oak Ridge Boys have achieved a decorated career, winning five GRAMMY® Awards, and multiple CMA, ACM and Dove Awards for their cross-over brand of pop, country and gospel music that spans multiple generations. Made up of members Duane Allen, Joe Bonsall, William Lee Golden and Richard Sterban, whose unmistakable bass on the lyric "oom poppa, mow mow," has become one of music's most recognized sing-alongs on an international scale, The Oak Ridge Boys are members of the Grand Ole Opry and achieved arguably country music's highest honor in October 2015 when they were inducted into the Country Music
Hall Of Fame.

Today the Center is recognized as a Cultural Ambassador for the City of Boise and a major destination for arts and culture, annually hosting hundreds of live entertainment and arts education offerings that serve to enrich the lives of patrons of all ages.
